SHARE Ted Cruz: Just like 'SNL,' Obama wants 'more cowbell'

No, you won’t be watching a “Saturday Night Live” skit tonight when President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address.

But according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, you might as well be.

According to Politico, Cruz said Obama sounds very much like Christopher Walken’s “SNL” character who wants to improve a musical performance with “more cowbell.”
