Funny Video: SNL Skit Lampoons Speakers Pelosi and Boehner

Get a grin at the comedy routine of competing House Speakers from both sides of the political aisle. The tough guy GOP Speaker is reduced to tears - by a savvy woman.




From Denny:  Talk about entertaining. In this SNL comedy skit the fake Speaker Pelosi gets back at Speaker Boehner for reducing her gavel down to a teeny weeny pink gavel while he sports a huge honking outsized sledgehammer gavel. She keeps mentioning various situations she knows will make Boehner start his weeping jags for which he is so famously known.

SNL Skit: Nancy Pelosi Demonstrates What Makes John Boehner Cry

Comic Kristen Wiig played Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Bill Hader played Speaker Jon Boehner, pretending to be guests on Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. The skit goes that Nancy presents John with the Speaker's gavel, you know the outgoing Speaker gives over the political symbol of the gavel to the incoming Speaker.

Of course, the fake Boehner decides he will reciprocate a gavel to now Minority Speaker Pelosi, so he gifts her with a teeny, tiny girly pink gavel. Of course, not to be outdone on that one, Nancy makes a decision of her own: She gives John Boehner something to really cry about since weeping is for what he is so famously known. They don't call her Competition Nancy for no reason. Tiny gavel but Big Mind. I want her on my team!
