Michelle Obama’s pet project as first lady has been to campaign for healthier diets to fight obesity, and the cast on Saturday’s “SNL” on NBC had a little fun at her expense.

During a skit mocking her campaign, former SNL regular Maya Rudolph as Michelle Obama and Fred Armisen as Barack Obama pretended to be characters of the 1980s and 1990s hit sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

Armisen’s Barack Obama (as Cosby’s Cliff Huxtable) is caught by Rudolph’s Michelle Obama (as Clair Huxtable) eating unhealthy food, with appearances from Jason Sudeikis’ Joe Biden (as Theo Huxtable) and Amy Poehler’s Hillary Clinton.
