Saturday Night Live on Saturday imagined a “bourbon summit” between President Obama and new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

The two prove that with a drink or nine they can certainly get along, even though they still can’t actually work together.

Though they immediately disagree on immigration, by drink four, the two prank call Hillary Clinton.

And after drink six, McConnell marvels that the U.S. has a black president.

“I mean, you ever think about that, a black U.S. president with this country’s history? No one would have thought that,” McConnell says in the skit.

“And no one would have ever thought that the Senate Majority Leader would be a redneck who looks like he lost his lips in a fire,” Obama quips back.

After nine drinks, Michelle Obama comes along to shut the party down.
