Video: Of All People, SNL Took The Democrats And Absolutely SKEWERED Them…
To say that the quality of sketch comedy has taken a nose dive in recent years would almost be like saying Democrats are not fond of Donald Trump. It’s just one of those obvious things.
Saturday Night Live hasn’t been particularly funny of late. Once upon a time, they used to have a little more balanced comedy. But for a long time, they’ve been completely within the Democratic camp. And with that, not particularly funny.
And when faced with using comedy to call out such evils as Harvey Weinstein alleged assaults on women, they went missing in the fray refusing to even touch the subject when it came out.
When grilled on it, creator Lorne Michaels said, “It’s a New York thing” referring to the fact that the show is made in New York and Weinstein lives in New York.
Yet of course, that ‘New York thing’ hasn’t stopped them from impersonating and mocking Trump, who is from the same New York borough as Weinstein, Queens.
They also managed to cover the accusations against Judge Roy Moore, again showing the hypocrisy of not covering Weinstein.
But on Saturday, they finally managed to break out of that ‘we support the Democrats all the time’ mold a little and do a skit that mocked the Democrats.
The skit lampooned the DNC and Democratic leaders including Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), former Vice President Joe Biden, former Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former DNC chair Donna Brazile.
The skit depicts Feinstein, Schumer and Pelosi declaring “We’re back!” after winning the governors’ races in Virginia and New Jersey on Tuesday.
Democrat Phil Murphy won in New Jersey despite promising to make it a sanctuary state. And Ralph Northam won in Virginia despite a despicable race-baiting ad which depicted white truck driving supporters of his opponent, Ed Gillespie and Donald Trump as wanting to chase down and murder minority children.
From Biz Pac Review: “We learned our lesson from the last election,” the Pelosi character announced. “We can’t just appeal to coastal elites, we need mouth breathers from Wisconsin.”
“We haven’t felt this confident since the day before Trump won,” said an Alex Moffat played Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Cecily Strong appeared as Sen. Dianne Feinstein and promised “jobs like smuggling immigrants across the border.”
The skit mocks the aged nature of the Democratic leadership, with Feinstein, Schumer and Pelosi all over 70, having served in Congress for at least 25 years.
They praised how they had fresh new faces coming forward before introducing Joe Biden (played by Jason Sudeikis) and Bernie Sanders (played by Larry David).
They then teased a comeback by Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon) who asks plaintively for “one more chance.” And the greatest line from Donna Brazile in response, “I thought she was dead.”
