Seth Meyers Is Happy with Jay Pharoah’s Obama


“If Obama wins reelection, Fred [Armisen] is likely not going to be at the show for another four years. And so you try to find a time to get people used to the new President on the show. Jay Pharoah…we really like his impression…Looking back I wish we did an impeachment of Fred.”

–Seth Meyers on WYNC’s “The Takeaway,” joking about SNL’s Obama changeover in an interview that also touches on the show’s treatment of frequent targets Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin.
