“Saturday Night Live”, which is definitely geared towards Democrats, took aim at Obamacare last night in a spoof that featured Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) of “Breaking Bad”.
The sketch had citizens talking about their personal stories in support of the new healthcare act, which didn’t go quite as they’d hoped. Check it out!
In the opening sketch, a cast member playing President Obama asked people to give their personal experiences with the so-called Affordable Care Act.
In a surprise appearance, one of the ordinary citizens was “Jesse from New Mexico”, which of course was Aaron Paul in character from his awesome “Breaking Bad” series.
Jesse said, “I have this friend, and he got sick, like cancer sick, but because there wasn’t Obamacare he couldn’t afford the treatments, so he was like backed into a corner… you know what I mean?… So he did what any of us should have done; he started cooking meth. And soon it wasn’t just meth; it was murder… and not regular murder. He blew half a guy’s face off.”
The actor playing Obama tried to wrap things up, Pinkman asked “Wait– don’t you want to know what happened to my friend?” Everyone answered “no!”, joking about people being worried about spoilers for the popular show.
Aaron Paul also made a cameo at the end of a SNL spoof commercial about e-meth in which he says “you know its good because it’s blue, b***h!”
Paul appeared at the end of the ad, in character as Jesse Pinkman, to endorse his second-favorite blue meth product eMeth.
