WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A spokesman for U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., says the presidential hopeful will not be able to appear on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live."

Spokesman Jen Psaki said in a statement that Obama decided to cancel his appearance on the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday in order to focus his attention on the ongoing hurricane crisis along the Gulf Coast, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.

"In the light of the unfolding crisis in Texas, Senator Obama has decided it is no longer appropriate to appear on Saturday Night Live tomorrow evening," Psaki said Friday.
