(Jay Pharoah as president Obama on ‘Saturday Night Live)

*Hmm, r-ruh, we don’t know about Jay Pharoah as President Obama on “Saturday Night Live.”

As we reported last week, Paharoah has been selected by “SNL” to replace Fred Armisen in the role.

But after seeing Saturday night’s season 38 opening skit/sketch, it might be wise to go back to Armisen.

BTW, in the sketch, Pharaoh’s Obama reminded voters that while he may have his flaws, the alternative — a Mitt Romney presidency — would be far worse.

Watch the clip below and let us know what you think. Is Jay Pharoah as Obama a pass or a fail?
