SNL Mocks Obama's 'Second-term Depression' in Fake Pharmaceutical Ad

NBC's "Saturday Night Live" mocked President Barack Obama's second term troubles in a devastatingly funny parody of an ad for anti-depressants..

The ad was for "Paxil," an anti-depressant for presidential depression syndrome designed to be "strong enough for an embattled second term."

Obama, played by cast member Jay Pharoah, looked stark in black and white photography as a narrator listed a number of "symptoms," including Benghazi, the NSA, the IRA -- and, of course, "Obamacare website problems."

Story continues below video.





"Are you feeling depressed? ... run down?," the skit begins. "like you just can't win? ... Are you the President of the United States? ... Then you may be suffering from presidential depression.

"With Paxil, you'll feel like you're giving a speech at a college campus in 2008 -- or getting bin Laden all over again."

The mock ad concluded with a biting disclaimer for Democrats: "Warning, Paxil is not covered by Obamacare. We promised that it would be, but it's not. And for that, we apologize."
