Anger Translation is Even Funnier with French Subtitles!

Le traducteur de colère d'Obama a fait un tabac by LeHuffPost

While more entertaining with subtitles, LeHuffPost did cut out some of Luther's best lines --  and President Obama's hilarious performance from Saturday night deserves to be seen in its entirety -- so here's the C-Span video:

Luther (Keegan-Michael Key) doesn't appear behind the President's podium until the 14 minute mark, but don't skip ahead. The speech is filled with gems like this one that you'll find at 1 minute and 40 seconds into this 20-minute speech:
"... I am determined to make the most of every moment I have left. After the mid-term elections, my advisors asked me, 'Mr. President, do you have a bucket list?' And I said, 'Well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list.' Take executive action on immigration? Bucket! New climate regulations? Bucket! It's the right thing to do. ..."
After that, you won't be able to stop listening.
