SNL's New Obama: Jay Pharoah Debuts Impression In Season 38 Opener (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

There's a new Obama in town.

Jay Pharoah debuted his POTUS impression on Saturday night's SNL season premiere, replacing Fred Armisen in the role.

In the opening sketch, Pharaoh's Obama reminded voters that while he may have his flaws, the alternative — a Mitt Romney presidency — would be far worse.

Jason Sudeikis reprised his awkward-rich-guy impersonation of Romney and Taran Killam rocked a Wisconsin accent to play arithmetic-challenged running mate Paul Ryan.

What do you think of the new lineup? Is Pharoah right for the part?
