This weekend’s Saturday Night Live opened with a very special announcement: President George W. Bush would be … running for president again!

Of course that meant Bush, played by Will Ferrell, had to explain how little he thought of the current batch of Republican candidates.

Literally: Ferrell’s Bush couldn’t get more than a few words into describing Trump’s (often controversial) policy proposals without bursting into laughter.

“I tell ya something: Whenever I get in a bad mood, I just picture his big fat orange Oompa Loompa face and I just piss my pants,” Bush said.

But with Bush back in the race, what would happen to his brother Jeb? Oh, Jeb.

“Look,” George W. said, referring to Jeb’s exclamation-marked campaign signage. “I don’t like the taste of broccoli, but it doesn’t get any tastier if you call it ‘broccoli!’ “
