Will Ferrell as Dubya Asks 'How Do You Like Me Now' on Samantha Bee

“Saturday Night Live” alumnus and “Anchorman” star Will Farrell joined Samantha Bee in character as former President George W. Bush for her “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” special on Saturday night.


“History has proven to be kinder to me than many of you thought,” Ferrell told the crowd as Bush. “For the longest time, I was considered the worst president of all time. That has changed — and it only took 100 days.”

In character as the 43rd president, Ferrell slammed Fox News and offered a bit of well-meaning fashion advice for President Donald Trump, saying, “A big, long tie that goes past your mid-thigh does not mean what you think it means.”
