Saturday Night Live
In what was supposedly a “comedy” act to close out the latest episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, the female cast members got together to sing their rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You”. But the person they had their eye on was Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or, at least a report that would put Trump in jail. Because, according to the SNL cast, “the only other option is a coup. Straight Africa.”
After Republican Congressman-Elect and military veteran Dan Crenshaw appeared on Saturday Night Live over the weekend to publicly forgive comedian Pete Davidson for a skit mocking his service, on Monday, the newly-elected Texas lawmaker was interviewed by the hosts of NBC’s Today show. In part, co-host Savannah Guthrie thanked him for his “incredible act of generosity” in agreeing to go on the comedy show.
Last week, NBC’s Saturday Night Live united the left and right in outrage when they targeted former Navy SEAL and now Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw for ridicule regarding his missing right eye, which he lost in an IED blast. But during this weekend’s show, they invited Crenshaw on to bury the hatchet and to deliver a very important Veterans Day message.
NBC's Saturday Night Live is taking on a very sour look. It mocked its own Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin after he reportedly punched a man in the face in a parking-spot dispute. It mocked Fox News for faking news about the "caravan" after NBC aired fake news about Brett Kavanaugh raping women. And Pete Davidson mocked the looks of an Afghanistan war hero who lost an eye in a terrorist blast.
When a conservative outlet or personality says something offensive, the media will rush to report the incident (often divorced from context or slyly edited.) Another conservative outrage against decency. When a liberal does it, you don’t often hear about the episode until there’s a “conservative backlash” to report.
The View began their show Monday by addressing the Saturday Night Live controversy where comedian Pete Davidson mocked a wounded veteran who also happened to be a Republican running in an upcoming midterm election. While even some of the liberal hosts at The View’s table said Davidson needed to apologize for the rude remark, co-host Joy Behar repeatedly defended the show and comedian, saying it was normal for the comedic show to make offensive jokes, (not noting that most of their “humor” is directed at Republicans.)
On NBC’s Today show on Monday, Saturday Night Live’s Kenan Thompson acknowledged that fellow cast member Pete Davidson “definitely missed the mark” when he mocked Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw’s appearance, a former Navy S.E.A.L. who lost his eye during combat in Afghanistan.
Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Monday in response to Saturday Night Live’s “pathetic” mocking of former Navy SEAL and current Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw:
Since the Vietnam War, liberals have been known for their great disdain for America’s service members, despite their efforts to hide it. During NBC’s latest edition of Saturday Night Live, that disdain poked its ugly head out in the form of supposed comedian Pete Davidson mocking Republican congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw about the eye he lost to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, “or whatever” according to the funny man.
Poor Alec Baldwin. The liberal actor and activist is trapped in a role that won’t let him go. Every time he decides he’s had enough of imitating President Trump on NBC’s Saturday Night Live program, people tell him he must continue because “we need you.” Baldwin, who won an Emmy Award for his impersonation, now claims at least one other benefit from his ongoing role: “Ever since I played Trump, black people love me. They love me. Everywhere I go, black people go crazy.”
Thank you for taking the time to read this latest installment of the Snoop Dogg vs. Kanye West political drama. First, there was West’s short, unaired political monologue that he gave after the end credits of Saturday Night Live’s season premiere had rolled. While the Trump-supporting rapper devoted a bit of time to criticizing Democratic policies, the majority of his words were an exhortation to his fellow celebrities and citizens to “try love,” or to be kind to those they don’t agree with.
