The November 6, 2021 edition of Saturday Night Live had a wonderfully relatable sketch that did not take a political stance or insult middle Americans. They punched Spectrum Cable in the face with a wickedly funny sendup of the difficulty of trying to cancel cable. Enjoy. 📞🙄 BONUS SKETCH Here's the cold open for SNL that features a vaccine-resistant Aaron Rodgers and a brand new character playing Donald Trump. In previous years, Trump was played by actor Alec Baldwin, who is now spiraling in dismay after shooting and killing a co-worker on the set of his film RUST. A prop gun handed to Baldwin contained at least one live round, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
NBC's Saturday Night Live skewered Kentuckians (clueless, inaccurate accents, Wal-Mart clothing) for supporting insincerely coal-conscious President Donald Trump. The positioning is that Kentuckians voted against their own interests by electing a leader who uses their lack of understanding to boost his own political scorecard. Of course Trump won in Democrat-heavy states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio but SNL gets better laughs torching Kentucky. If the Kentucky sketch was a misdirection that ignores heavy Trump resistance in Louisville, Lexington, and Northern Kentucky, the parody of a New York cable news host was on point. SNL offered a brilliant takedown of embattled Fox News host Bill O'Reilly. Saturday Night Live tossed Alec Baldwin n the dual role of both Trump and O'Reilly.

I find it fascinating that you freely admitted that you really didn't know who he was, what he believes, and even where his show aired. ("web show are something"). I believe you referred to him as a "conspiracy theorists" and something along the lines of a "kook". Your sidekick whoever that was said that Alex Jones screams a lot. Have you ever heard of Chris Matthews? He tends to get a bit loud and even seems to slobber. Despite that, I was offended at your assessment
