Saturday Night Live imagined Barack Obama caving on the “fiscal cliff” negotiations because John Boehner’s colleagues turned on him at the hint of raising taxes. “Simply put, I felt sorry for this man.”

“On Thursday, this man, this grown man was pushed into the Congressional ladies washroom. Naked from the waist down,” Obama said, adding: “You leave this poor orange man alone.”
