'SNL' Replays Dana Carvey's George H.W. Bush Impression

By    |   Sunday, 02 December 2018 10:22 AM

Paying tribute to the late George H.W. Bush, the "Weekend Update" on "SNL" replayed Dana Carvey's famed impression of the 41st U.S. president.

"President Bush was famously a very warm and gracious man who always understood the power in being able to laugh at yourself," co-host Colin Jost said before clips were aired of Carvey's renditions.

They also played a famous side-by-side of the president humorously discounting Carvey's impressions, misquotations, and hand gesturing.

Carvey was also invited to the White House in 1992 to do his George H.W. Bush impression before the president took the podium for a Christmas event.

"Dana's has given me a lot of laughs," Bush said. "He said to me on the phone, 'You sure you really want me to come there?'

"And I said, 'Yeah.' He said, 'I hope I've never crossed the line,' and I knew exactly what he meant – and as far as I'm concerned he never has. And the fact that we can laugh at each other is a very fundamental thing."
