SNL: Watch Dwayne Johnson Get Angry At GOP Senators And Turn Into The Rock Obama
Don’t make Barack Obama angry. You wouldn’t like Barack Obama when he’s angry.
Dwayne Johnson reprised his role of “The Rock Obama.” The angry Hulk-like leader skit first aired on Saturday Night Live in 2009, but with Fred Armisen as the calm, cool and collected Obama who took issue with GOP members who were against Obamacare.
In the cold open sketch, President Barack Obama was played by Jay Pharoah in this updated version of the level-headed leader. However House Speaker John Boenher (Taran Killam), Sen. Ted Cruz (Bobby Moynihan) and Sen. Tom Cotton Sen. (Kyle Mooney) keep pushing Obama’s buttons. The GOP politicians rattle Obama over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressing Congress and sending a letter to Iran behind Obama’s back regarding a potential nuclear deal. Michelle Obama (Sasheer Zamata) attempts to intervene, but it is too late.
However when the Secret Service makes another blunder, Michelle gets so enraged that she transforms into “She Rock Obama,” played by Leslie Jones.
Can you smell what Barack is cooking?
