do a brilliant Bush?
This is an excerpt from Langman Dictionary:
He does a brilliant George Bush (=copies him in a very funny way).
I understand that "does" here means "copy one's behavior". What makes me confused is the explanation after the sentence. When someone says "he does a brilliant Bush", how should we know that he does it in a funny way? I mean, which word in the sentence tells us that it is "funny"? Thanks. :)

The word impression has been omitted:

All the best, :D
When you act out like someone, it's generally meant to be fun. I can't think of a context where you would expect to be taken seriously doing so (drama class, maybe...)
