President Barack Obama hadn’t even taken the podium to deliver his health care press conference yet, but that didn’t stop Comedy Central’s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele from “anger translating” the speech he was about to make. The comedy duo gamely improvised one of their most popular sketches for HuffPost Live, predicting what Obama would say to the American people and how his anger translator Luther would convey it.
Peele, as Obama, began by explaining that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and that making “small mistakes” helps us learn how to do things better. Soon, Key’s Luther was announcing that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is on her way to getting fired. “Her ass is out the door!” he shouted.
While Obama was “having a little trouble with the website,” Luther complained, “I can’t even get online, and I live in the White House! …Where the hell the wifi at in the W.H.?”
As always, Luther gave Obama’s calm and reflective explanations that dash of righteousness that Americans, and especially Democrats, are so eager to see from the president.
