'SNL' Does Perfect Spoof Of Jimmy McMillan On 'Weekend Update' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Recent star of the New York gubernatorial debate Jimmy McMillan was given a send-up on "Saturday Night Live" last night, when Keenan Thompson debuted his hilarious and spot-on impression of him. During a segment on "Weekend Update," McMillan discussed the "Rent Is Too Damn High" party and shared some interesting statistics on today's hard economic times.

"People got seven jobs, they working 36 hours a day, 12 days a week, and they can't afford a roof," McMillan said. "I will make sure you have a roof over your head, money in your pocket, and breakfast, lunch and dinner!"

Not only did Thompson look the part with McMillan's eccentric facial hair and signature gloves, but he also nailed McMillan's enthusiasm to a tee. And when asked why it's been reported that he himself hasn't paid rent since the 80s, he responded appropriately:

"Because the RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH!"
