32. President Bill Clinton At McDonald's

Air Date: 12/5/92
Starring: Tom Arnold, Ellen Cleghorne, Chris Farley, Phil Hartman, Melanie Hutsell, Tim Meadows, Kevin Nealon, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, Julia Sweeney

Before Darrell Hammond took over Bill Clinton duties on SNL, the late, great Phil Hartman played everyone's favorite sex-addicted president, from 1992 to 1994. There are plenty of Hartman-as-Clinton sketches to choose from, but we picked this particular skit, not only for its hysterical premise (Bill Clinton walking into a McDonald's after a three-block jog and mooching off of other people's meals) but also for one particular line in the beginning (keep in mind, this bit took place in 1992).

Secret Service agent: "Please, don't tell Mrs. Clinton [about the trip to McDonald's]."
Bill Clinton: "Jim, let me tell you something. There's a gonna be a whole bunch of things we don't tell Mrs. Clinton."

A little foreshadowing, perhaps?
