Fake Mandela Sign Language Interpreter & Obama’s ‘Selfie’ Spoofed in SNL


Saturday Night Live opened up with a spoof of President Obama’s visit to Nelson Mandela’s memorial and the unforgettable episode of the fake sign language interpreter.

SNL’s Obama addressed the controversies at Mandela’s funeral and started on the healthcare. He was then ruthlessly interrupted by Germany’s Angela Merkel who wanted her own selfie with Obama. This was a nod to Obama’s infamous selfie with the Danish Prime Minister Helle Throning-Schmidt’s and England’s David Cameron that stirred a lot of controversy.

Check out SNL’s spoof of fake Mandela sign language interpreter and Obama’s selfie in this week’s Cold Open.
