(Newser) – We have a fiscal cliff deal, and John Boehner has emerged victorious—at least if last night's Saturday Night Live is to be believed. Jay Pharoah's President Obama announced last night that he caved on negotiations, mostly because House Republicans were being really, really mean to Bill Hader's Boehner, reports the Hollywood Reporter. “Republicans, you win. You get what you want,” says Pharoah in the Cold Open. “But you leave this man alone. You leave this poor, orange man alone.” After grabbing Boehner's pants and shoving him in the House women's restroom, the speaker was left with "one hand covering his genitals, the other trying to cover his butt crack. Neither hand succeeding," Pharoah intoned. Hader mostly nodded and sobbed. Jamie Foxx guest hosted, and Dermot Mulroney (or was it Dylan McDermott?) dropped by.
