Jordan Peele brought back his Barack Obama impression to capture what the former president might be thinking of what’s happening in the country right now.

While chatting about the end of Key and Peele along with his Obama impression, he and Seth Meyers started imagining how Obama, who’s been on vacation for much of President Trump’s time in office, would react to everything. 

He’s used social media sparingly, and aside from condemning Trump’s immigration ban last month, hasn’t said much at all. But Peele has some idea of how Obama, with whiskey in hand, would react while watching the news.

Like the last time we saw Obama and his anger translator, it’s unexpected but most welcome.

He doesn’t even need an anger translator this time.
