13. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as the Bush Twins

First daughters are seen as off limits a lot of the time. Well, they are now, but when Amy Poehler and Tina Fey took on the Bush Twins, everyone was on board. Recently there has been backlash for people who made jokes about Barron Trump.

But in the past, every other first child seemed to be free game until now. For example, people bashed the Obama girls for years but now we’re not allowed to make harmless jokes about Barron? But that is neither here nor there. We’re here to talk about Jenna and Barbra Bush.

Again with Amy and Tina, neither were big on impressions. They were meant to be there for the comedy and their wit. But with the Bush twins (as well as Hillary and Sarah), both showed that they were capable of making us laugh with their impressions as well.

And this sketch is just pretty funny. It is the night after the second inauguration of George W. Bush and the two are worried about whether or not their father was a good president. The two then speak in their twin language and it makes perfect sense for the two of them.

The two love their family and the sketch embodies that but it’s just a real fun time. Especially when Dick Cheney comes in and tells everyone to go to bed.
