During the “Weekend Update” portion of last night’s Saturday Night Live, Michael Che welcomed guests Bruce Springsteen (played by Beck Bennett) and Barack Obama (played by Chris Redd) to discuss the duo’s new podcast Renegades: Born in the USA. In the sketch, Springsteen and Obama were asked about their rapport and what they discuss. The duo offer some very brief examples of how they relate to one another. Watch it happen below. 

The episode was hosted by Carey Mulligan and featured performances and sketches from musical guest Kid Cudi.
