Will Ferrell as George W. Bush on Samantha Bee’s Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner

While one White House Correspondents’ dinner was going on over the weekend a very “not so” White House Correspondents’ dinner was also going on.  Samantha Bee threw her first “Not The White House Correspondents’ dinner and the show did not disappoint.   Far and away the highlight of the show was Will Ferrell coming out and reprising his famous SNL role of George W. Bush.  With cigarette in hand and total arrogance and attitude on display the crowd went wild.

In a show were Bee and company took plenty of shots at the administration it was Ferrell who stole the show.   Bee spent more than an hour paying homage to a free and functional press (“from the failing New York Times to the failing pile of garbage BuzzFeed” to ProPublica, which “sounds Mexican”); skewering sensational media practices; and evoking an alternate reality where Hillary Clinton is commander in chief and George W. Bush delivers President Trump takedowns.

“How do you like me now?” Ferrell drawled to the roaring audience. “The prodigal son has returned. I don’t know what that means, but I know it’s positive. It’s very prodigal.”
