Legendary comedian Don Rickles died in 2017 at age 90. If he were still alive in today's woke society, he would be burned at the stake. Watch his Saturday Night Live monologue from 1984 and prepare for self-righteous heads to explode. Part of the Rickles SNL monologue included this line: "I make jokes about Black people cuz I'm not one." The crowd roared with laughter as Rickles went on to imitate Blacks, Italians, Puerto Ricans, Chinese, and other races and ethnicities. Huge audience laughter. This week, the woke castmates on SNL are upset that business tycoon Elon Musk is the guest host. Why? Because he's a rich white guy. That's his crime. Some SNL "comedians" are hesitant to appear on stage with Musk. When did
Matt Lauer has been terminated from NBC News. On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment. pic.twitter.com/1A3UAZpvPb— TODAY (@TODAYshow) November 29, 2017 NBC News abruptly terminated Matt Lauer for inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.

Rival ABC News challenged statements by NBC execs claiming they didn't know anything about Lauer's workplace misdeeds. Some former NBC employees say
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.
The African American cast members on Saturday Night Live rolled out a blazing parody of Black History Month and its underlying fuel of white guilt. This is very clever, provocative comedy at its best.
Just days before the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, NBC's Saturday Night Live parodied Russia'a anti-gay political structure by offering Heterosexual Figure Skating. Pretty hilarious editorializing, and Papa John's wound up with an inadvertent ad campaign in the show's opening sketch. More on this episode of SNL starring Jonah Hill is here. The opening monologue shown below features a cameo by Leonardo DiCaprio. The oddest offering? A scene involving sensitive hit men.
