'SNL': Russell Brand (as George Washington) Changes American History Forever (VIDEO)

Russell Brand as George Washington on 'SNL'In the final 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC) skit featuring Russell Brand as host, the Pentagon goes to great lengths to settle a Constitutional dispute, using a time machine to bring George Washington into 2011. "You will each have 60 seconds to make your case to him. At that point President Washington will give his expert opinion. We will accept it, and then we will send him back into the past."

But there's no time for debate, as Washington (Brand) is so startled by modern America, he punches and karate-chops everyone in sight. Finally Nancy Pelosi (Kristen Wiig) stabs him in the back, and he dies a dramatic (though eloquent) death.

She has killed George Washington, changing America's destiny forever! Cut to a view of the Capitol, with the British flag on full display. Oops.

"I love SNL" It was a very funny skit up until she killed President Washington! And something I'm sure the British always wanted was USA soil to be all theres! I still can't figure out what Katy Perry see's in Russell Brand but sometimes he's truly talented & funny!
