Saturday Night Live last night mocked the post debate reaction at MSNBC.

Opening with a parody Rachel Maddow hosting the show, the actor playing Al Sharpton came up with excuses for the president’s bad performance including altitude and jet lag.

Going to a character playing Chris Matthews, Maddow asked if he was disappointed with Obama’s performance.

“Disappointed!? I’ve never been so disgusted in my life,” Matthews yells. “I feel bad for whoever had to move the podium afterwards because Obama took a giant dump behind it.

“It’s one thing that President Obama had nothing to say, but why would you let Governor Romney talk?” continued Matthews. “You forgot the first rule of debating. Always be interrupting.”

“When I don’t have points to make on my show, I make up for it by screaming at people,” Matthews explains. “That’s how you win a debate.”

After Maddow disagrees, Matthews interrupts, “Baa, baa, baa, baa, baa. See? You’re wrong. Debate’s over, I won.”
