SNL Obamas on Cosby Show Skit

In this Saturday Night Live skit from last night's show, the Obama family has created a new sitcom which is modeled after The Cosby Show. Fred Armisen is President Obama as Bill Cosby/Cliff Huxtable and it works quite well, as does Michelle Obama (Maya Rudolph) as Clair Huxtable. Joe "Jamal" Biden (Jason Sudeikis) is their son Theo. The president spends most of his time trying to get out of eating the healthy rice cakes that his wife thinks are more appropriate than a hoagie. Take a look:
