How a Bill Becomes an Executive Order

The SNL cold open updates a Schoolhouse Rock classic:


Mediaite’s Tina Nguyen (“SNL’s Obama Shoves The Schoolhouse Rock Bill Down The Capitol Steps”):

Finally, the first biting political spoof from Saturday Night Live in a while: the Bill from Schoolhouse Rockexplains to a student how he becomes a law, only to be violently beat up by Barack Obama and his new best friend, “Executive Order.”

Even then, the poor Executive Order still thinks he’s used for simple things, like declaring holidays and creating national parks, until Obama informs him that he’s going to be used to grant amnesty to 5 million undocumented immigrants. His reaction: “Whoa.”

Indeed.
