Dwayne Johnson gave his funny bone a workout!

The former WWE star and Fast & Furious actor hosted Saturday Night Live this week. In the cold open, President Barack Obama was played by Jay Pharoah -- until he confronted John Boehner (Taran Killam), Tom Cotton (Kyle Mooney), and Ted Cruz (Bobby Moynihan), at which point he Hulked out and became President "The Rock" Obama.

Dwayne Johnson, wearing a shredded dress shirt and suit pants, confronted his fellow politicians about their bad behavior. He threw John Boehner out a window, ripped off Tom Cotton's hand, and narrowly avoided decapitating Ted Cruz.
