Saturday Night Live mocked House Speaker John Boehner and Rep. Michele Bachmann over the government shutdown with a spoof of host Miley Cyrus's "We Can't Stop." The parody, called "We Did Stop," portrays Boehner (Tiran Killam) in white spandex baring his less-than-taut middle twerking awkwardly as he and Bachmann (Cyrus) destroy a replica of the U.S. flag and shove money down the throat of Uncle Sam. "It's our party we can say what we want / Defund what we want / It's our party we can vote how we want / Are you ready for health care? / Can I get a hell no?/ La de da de / Republican Party / This is our house / This is our rules / And we did stop!" The song ends with Boehner snuggling up to a shirtless male dancer and kissing him on the chest much to the surprise of the dancer. President Obama (Jay Pharoah) is seen spying on the Republicans run amok shaking his head in disbelief.
