Will Ferrell stopped by "Saturday Night Live" to make a very special "announcement."

Reprising his impression of George W. Bush, Ferrell appeared in the episode's cold open sketch announcing Bush 43's candidacy for president.

“I’ve made a big decision. I’m entering the race for president of the United States of America,” Ferrell's Bush said. “The field of Republicans out there is so messed up, I figured, makes you miss me, doesn’t it?”

In the sketch, Ferrell one-by-one mocked the current Republican candidates from Bush 43's perspective.

On Ben Carson, he said: "I can barely hear him when he talks. I'll tell you something, that's not going to work when you have to go to China or Azerbaijan where you have to talk loudly so they will understand."

And no analysis or political "SNL" sketch would be complete without a take on Donald Trump.

"Whenever I get in a bad mood I picture this big fat orange Oompa Loompa face and piss my pants,” Ferrell's Bush said, laughing.

As for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Ferrell's Bush said: "You gotta admit, it's a pretty good plot twist that I turned out to be the smart one."
