"Saturday Night Live" took a serious turn this week, paying tribute to the late President George H.W. Bush in the show's "Weekend Update" segment.
"Friday night, former President George H.W. Bush passed away," cast member Michael Che said. "He was 94 years old. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends."
"That's right. President Bush was famously a warm and gracious man who always understood the power in being able to laugh at yourself," Colin Jost added.
The tribute continued with a series of clips of former "SNL" cast member Dana Carvey's impressions of the former president, culminating with a split-screen appearance featuring both the real and fake Bush.
