Miley Cyrus Is Michele Bachmann in ‘Saturday Night Live’ Government Shutdown Song [Video]

Subscribe to K945, The Hit Music Channel on

If you missed ‘Saturday Night Live‘ this weekend (Oct. 5), you missed Miley Cyrus sing a parody of her song “We Can’t Stop,” tweaked to call out Congress over last week’s government shutdown.

Joined by Republican House Speaker John Boehner (Taran Killam), Miley as Congresswoman Bachmann plays a markedly more reserved role in the spoof song called ‘We Did Stop,’ with Boehner instead dressed in a white halter top and matching yoga pants.

The parody video retains the original song’s weirdness while injecting some wild political imagery and reworked lyrics, including: ‘Red states and sweaty bodies everywhere/Bills in the House like we don’t care/’Cuz we came to shut it all down now/No government around now.’

It’s arguably one of the funniest SNL skits in recent memory. And while hundreds of thousands of employees being on furlough or working without pay is no laughing matter, it’s hard not to crack a smile at the political satire the ‘Saturday Night Live’ writers and Cyrus have brought to the table in the video.

So far, neither Michele Bachmann nor John Boehner have said anything about the parody video. We don’t expect that to change. After all, the government is shut down.
