Hell hath no fury like a sketch comedy show shunned. In his leaked fund-raising video, Mitt Romney told his supporters why he wouldn’t appear on the Saturday Night Live:

And– and there’s– I was asked to go on Saturday Night Live.  I– I did not do that in part because you– you wanna show that you’re fun and you’re a good person, but you don’t wanna– you– you also wanna be presidential.  And Saturday Night Live has the potential of– of looking slapstick and not– and not presidential.

Now NBC has released a sketch from SNL skewering Rmoney’s leaked video, featuring Jason Sudekis as the candidate, that paints Mittens as racist, out of touch, and hating the poor in a series of secretly recorded videos airing on Fox and Friends.

For good measure, SNL goofs on “Fox and Friends” Along with satirizing the hosts’ gig as Rmoney apologists, a series of fact checker corrections scroll at the end of the segment, including:

A wind turbine has never cut off the head of a pretty girl in a convertible…The Negro League is not ‘back and better than ever.’
