Will Ferrell’s George W. Bush came back to “Saturday Night Live.”
The actor, who hosted this week’s show, revived his popular impression of the former president. Ferrell’s Bush said he knew his presidency was looking good compared to the Trump administration.
“Donny Q. Trump came in and all suddenly, I’m looking pretty sweet by comparison. At this rate, I might even end up on Mount Rushmore next to Washington, Lincoln and I want to say Kensington?” Ferrell’s Bush said. “The point is that I’m suddenly popular AF.”
Ferrell’s Bush said he was speaking from a set built in the basement of his Texas home that helps him pretend he is still president. He said he wanted to remind his fellow Americans that was not as good as many remember him.
“I was really bad. Like historically not good,” he said.
“Please do not look back at my presidency and think ‘This is how we do it,'” he added.
Ferrell’s Bush said the United States is still fighting two different wars that began during his presidency.

Shake Shack(NYSE:SHAK) recently announced first-quarter results that were embraced by Wall Street. The upstart burger chain didn’t solve its customer traffic challenge, but its latest numbers gave investors hope that market-thumping growth pace could continue, and that the company might just reach management’s aggressive goal of doubling the store base by 2020.

Customers had the option of paying either through the Shake Shack mobile app or with plastic at an order-taking kiosk — but there was nary a live cashier to be found.
