The Fake Interpreter Made A Hilarious “Saturday Night Live” Appearance Last Night

There were also selfies.

1. Last night’s Saturday Night Live cold open addressed Obama’s behavior at Nelson Mandel’s funeral: the selfie, his handshake with Raúl Castro, and there was even an appearance from the notorious fake interpreter.

2. The interpreter’s gestures were pretty perfect as Obama spoke about the Healthcare.gov website.
