Saturday Night Live
Due process has become a thing of the past in the minds of the liberal media. Fake news anchor Michael Che underlined this during the Weekend Update segment on the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live.
In this age of liberal insanity it seems nothing is too ridiculous, though we do wonder whether we should pinch ourselves when the suits over at Netflix have actually developed technology that allows exhausted viewers to skip Trump-related material in their programming.
Now this is an Epic Satire Fail. Saturday Night Live went on the air at 11:30 pm Eastern time with an opening skit where Alec Baldwin's Very Fake Trump was thanked by Pete Davidson's Very Fake ISIS Member for "bringing jobs back...for ISIS." Six minutes before, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News was tweeting that ISIS leader Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi may have been killed by U.S. forces. John Santucci of ABC reported it via Twitter at 11:53. Somehow, NBC had no live break-in during SNL.
Cancel Culture types pack an emotional point when they call people out for telling the “wrong” jokes. Marginalized groups shouldn’t be the butt of gags. They’re already at a disadvantage in our culture, and being mocked can only make matters worse. Children like eco-activist Greta Thunberg and Parkland High School students deserve a measure of protection.
It’s no surprise that people in the “mainstream media” in news and entertainment are tilted so far to the left that they very likely could not be much more liberal. Nevertheless, in a ridiculous effort to bring more conservative viewers to NBC’s Saturday Night Live program, producer Lorne Michaels saw his clumsy strategy blow up in his face after it was discovered newly hired “conservative” comic Shane Gillis had used his podcast to openly attack homosexuals, Asians and other minority groups.
During the past several weeks, Chris Cuomo -- host of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time program -- and Don Lemon -- anchor of CNN Tonight -- have used the weeknight “handoff” from the first show to the next as an opportunity to discuss items of interest to both liberal announcers. On Monday evening, the hosts bemoaned the fate of Shane Gillis, a comedian who was fired just days after it was announced he was going to join the cast of NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
Former SNL comedian Norm MacDonald knows a thing or two about being fired by NBC’s sketch comedy show for some controversial comedy. It’s why the legendary stand-up comic has offered support for recently-hired-then-fired comedian Shane Gillis, the young man who was axed by SNL after video surfaced of him making fun of Chinese people.
In one of the fastest Twitter takedowns in recent memory, Saturday Night Live fired comedian Shane Gillis only four days after hiring him due to the complaints of internet users who dug up video of the comedian making insensitive comments, particularly about Chinese people.
For a group of entertainment producers who kill to come off as condescendingly woke, ‘SNL’ showrunners look super inept for hiring an apparent racist as one of their new cast members. One of the sketch comedy’s new talents has been labeled a racist by CNN journalists for making fun of Chinese people in 2018. SNL is in an even deeper pickle because another new cast member for the upcoming season is actually Chinese.
One of the Left’s favorite phrases jumps to mind regarding Hollywood’s take on conservatives. The term “othering” means treating people as somehow different, and inferior, to you or the group you belong to. Here’s a quick example: When then-candidate Donald Trump used the word “the” before Latinos and African-Americans during the 2016 campaign the Left claimed he was “othering” them for political gain.
It’s been almost 3 years and yet liberals are still puzzling over how President Trump won the 2016 election. Comedian Anthony Jeselnik has a new answer: he lays blame at the feet of Saturday Night Live head Lorne Michaels. “I think Lorne Michaels helped get Trump elected,” Jeselnik said in an interview with Matt Wilstein on The Daily Beast’s The Last Laugh podcast, released on Tuesday.
Apparently there’s no room for President Donald Trump in the safe space that comedian Leslie Jones lives in. The outspoken leftwing SNL star and stand up comic told late night host Jimmy Kimmel that Trump “is banned from my life.” Jones, one of the stars of the failure that was 2016’s all female Gostbusters reboot, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss her new Netflix stand up special.
