Over the weekend Saturday Night Live skewered President Obama's handling of recent crises including: Ebola, ISIS, the IRS, the NSA and the launch of Obamacare. In a skit, where Obama introduces the new Ebola Czar to the press, Obama jokes that when compared to his handling of other recent crises and scandals, his administration's response to Ebola was actually one of his 'greatest accomplishments.'

"I assure you, it was nowhere near as bad as how we handled the ISIS situation. Or our various Secret Service mishaps. Or the scandals of the IRS and NSA and I don’t know if you guys remember, but the ObamaCare Website had some pretty serious problems, too. In fact, if you look at all the stuff that’s happened in my second term, this whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments.”
Ron Klain, the new Ebola Czar, then takes the podium and fields questions from reporters. While fending off criticism of the administration's politicization of Ebola, Klain notes: “There are a few safety tips that people should be aware of heading toward election day. For example, the Ebola virus actually flourishes in warmer climates. So if you live in a southern state, such as Louisiana, Arkansas, or Kentucky, you actually may want to avoid any large public spaces like, say, a polling booth. One exception, however, is that we believe Latinos in red states may actually have an immunity to Ebola."
