'Selfiegate' subject of parody on SNL
Leave it to the writers at Saturday Night Live to turn this into a funny skit. Not only was the selfie with Thorning-Schmidt brought up, but so was the now infamous false sign language interpreter who made incoherent gestures during the event. We bet though, that he might have been able to translate the First Lady's comments to the President when both were finally alone following the memorial. After all, that would have required the use of just one finger.
The skit ends up with German Chancellor Angela Merkel (portrayed by SNL's Kate McKinnon) demanding a selfie from the President, too. We won't spill the beans on the rest of the skit, which you can view by clicking on the video below. And in case you're keeping score, Jay Pharoah played the president while of course, Kenan Thompson was the interpreter.
