Saturday Night Live Takes On The State Of The Union

Saturday Night Live Takes On The State Of The Union

Snl

Fred Armisen played President Obama promising to end "don't ask, don't tell."

In last night's Saturday Night Live, Fred Armisen played President Obama promising to end "don't ask, don't tell" in one sketch and then pretended to be Congressman Barney Frank fantasizing about Massachusetts's newly elected senator, Scott Brown, in another.

In the State of the Union bit, Armisen opened by discussing the Coakley-Brown race for U.S. Senate, moved on to job creation, and then included the president's pledge to end "don't ask, don't tell."

"In the months ahead I plan to ask Congress for legislation ending the ban on gays in the military," Armisen says. "This in itself will create 30,000 jobs in our armed forces as well as two new series on Bravo."

In the next sketch, a hunky Jon Hamm as Scott Brown triggers Armisen's Barney Frank to imagine the new senator in cutoff shorts and a construction helmet.
