George W. Bush Looks Back on Will Ferrell’s ‘SNL’ Impression of Him on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

By

Here’s a clip from former POTUS George W. Bush’s appearance on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he looks back on the days Will Ferrell impersonated him on SNL and a meeting he had with Lorne Michaels at the time. “I had dinner with Lorne Michaels, the head of Saturday Night Live, and he said, ‘I put a great speechwriter on you, and he came up with ‘strategery.” And I said, ‘Wait a minute, I said strategery. And he said, ‘No, you didn’t say strategery.’ I said, ‘I damn sure said strategery.’ He said, ‘We invented it.’ I said ‘Well let me ask you this: Did he come up with ‘misunderestimate’?” Bush also says that Ferrell’s impression never bothered him: “I love humor, and the best humor’s when you make fun of yourself.” “Well, tell that to the president,” Kimmel says. “He doesn’t think so.”
