Who knew Dubya would be the voice of reason?

We haven’t heard much from George W. Bush in the current election cycle, but that changed last night, when he showed up on SNL to ask if we missed him. 

Via his proxy, Will Ferrell, Bush ran down the list of current Republican nominees and roasted them all, especially Donald Trump and his plan to ban Muslims from entering the country. “That’s impossible to implement and not what this country is about,” he said. “Heck, that’s like saying, ‘Let’s keep all the leprechauns out.” 

He had some especially pointed words for his brother, Jeb!, and that excessive piece of punctuation. Dubya is now the voice of reason. Let that sink in.
