This morning the comedy team Key and Peele released a new message from President Barack Obama’s “Anger Translator,” Luther, in which he reacted to the 2012 election results.

In these sketches, Keegan-Michael Key plays the character Luther, who is the brash, outspoken id of the more sedate “Obama,” played by Jordan Peele.

“Good evening, my fellow Americans,” began Peele as Obama, “I just want to thank you for your continued faith…,” he said, before Key as Luther lunged from out of nowhere to catch a football pass thrown from offscreen.

“Whoooo!” shouted Luther from the floor. “We won!”

Obama went on to say that he wishes his opponent Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) well and congratulate him on a good campaign.

“Take that shit back to the lab, Mitt!” Luther bellowed. “‘Cos ya lost!”

“We will move forward on pressing issues,” continued Obama.

“We gon’ pass health care,” said Luther, “AGAIN! Now what, bitches?”

The president thanked all of the voters who turned out in support, to which Luther announced, “White people who voted for me? You are all now honorary black people!”

“And thank you for your support,” Obama said.

“And fuck you if you tried to fuck me!” Luther translated. “I mean, you know how much money they spent trying to get rid of this? Millions, son! I said millions! But you can’t get rid of me, aw nah.”

He then began to do what is known in the colloquy as “the Hammer-Time dance.”

“Luther, what’d I tell you?” said the president. “No hammer dancing.”

“Come on, B! We won! Let’s do it, dawg!” said Luther.

“No, now, I told you, I don’t want you doing it wrong,” Obama said, rising and beginning to dance. “If you’re gonna do it, you gotta get it right. God bless America!”
