We have been missing Key & Peele for over a year after the show went off the air on Comedy Central. The dynamic duo returned to The Daily Show to give Barack Obama a proper sendoff with one of their signature skits, “Anger Translator.”
Keegan-Michael Key made his final appearance as President Obama’s anger translator, Luther, along with co-star Jordan Peele as the POTUS. The last time we saw Luther, he was serving as “anger translator” for the real President Obama at 2015’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Peele’s Obama gives his farewell address, but struggles to deliver it smoothly because Luther is full of fury as he thinks about President-elect Donald J. Trump and continually interrupts the POTUS.
“Since we last spoke, the country has voted for a new President,” said Peele as Obama. Then Luther erupts, “TRUMP?! Really? How did this happen? Don’t you understand? This is how The Hunger Games starts!”
Peele’s Obama explained how it is critical that “we move on as a country united,” and Luther interrupts, “United in the fact that we can’t fucking stand each other!”
The skit ended with Luther reading aloud Obama’s confidential note to President-elect Trump, “Go fuck yourself.”
