SNL's Obama: Botched Ebola response nothing compared to ObamaCare screwups

Saturday Night Live skewered the Obama administration's response to the Ebola crisis this weekend, suggesting that though Ebola czar Ron Klain was grossly unprepared for his new post, his appointment was nothing compared to other recent White House screwups.

"It's true, we made a few mistakes early on," SNL's fake Obama, played by Jay Pharoah, said. "But I assure you this was nowhere near as bad as how we handled the ISIS situation."

"And I don't know if you guys remember, but the ObamaCare website had some pretty serious problems too," he added. "In fact, if you look at all the stuff that's happened my second term, this Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments." --Jon Terbush
