You can tell that the hacks over at Saturday Night Live aren’t taking the Trump win very well. They just had Kate McKinnon, of failed Ghostbusters infamy, open the show as if 9/11 just happened. She was dressed up as Hillary Clinton while doing a cover version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Classy. Originally, I missed it. But I saw a bunch of “progressive” idiots praising the segment, so I figured I would give it a gander.

Dave Chappelle was up next, as he’s the host (plus the only reason anyone with a brain would even consider watching SNL these days).

I’m going to watch the rest later after it hits the download circuit so I can skip the garbage parts and enjoy Chappelle. But I did catch his “Black Negan” sketch via Twitter, which was pretty good.

But the part that really gets me is that opening. I can’t think of a more condescending way to respond to Trump’s victory (oh, and it was horribly out of key, by the way). SNL, instead of, ya know, actually trying to be funny, decides to act like this is some sort of national tragedy. They also gloss over the fact that Hillary Clinton was one of the worst Democratic candidates of all-time. The writers are trying to turn her into some sort of martyr instead of admitting what a shit politician she is. The Donald scored a big victory, but a lot of that was because of Hillary’s litany of corrupt associates and dealings, not to mention her grating voice and tone-deaf political ear.

I’m sure stuff like this will help Democrats out.

  1. It’s one thing to memorialize Leonard Cohen. It’s another to tie it together with pandering bullshit.
    SNL was never good. Not even when people thought it was.

      1. Definitely had more consistently funny bits. Some of those concept episodes and sketches though were right out of SNL’s last half hour.
        Sketch comedy is extremely difficult which is why you only ever see the same sketches over and over in retrospectives.

    2. Unfortunately it missed Goldblum. Well, I suppose we can always count on a well-placed lightning strike.

    How Pop Culture Wore Out Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/20/arts/music/leonard-cohen-emmys-hallelujah.html?_r=0

    Leonard Cohen’s ballad “Hallelujah” has become so inescapable that the songwriter once asked for a break from his own track. “I think it’s a good song, but too many people sing it,” he told The Guardian in 2009, agreeing with a critic for The New York Times who asked for a moratorium on “Hallelujah” in movies.

    It appears that the producers of Sunday night’s Emmy Awards were unaware of the unofficial ban.

    ————————————————————
    I recall an SNL skit from the 1990s when it was revealed that when Bill was governor, Hillary suddenly dabbled in the commodities market which is where 75% of players lose money. She bought cattle futures and quickly made $100k. At the time TIME revealed a list of politicians’ wives who had miraculous profits in business from sinecure jobs and that it is a standard way to funnel a bribe to a politician.

    So SNL did a parody of the stock brokerage ad where someone would say “My broker is [I forget the name] and {name] says …” and the camera moves back to show everyone around has frozen and is eavesdropping. Then the voiceover says, “When [name] talks, people listen.” Except SNL had 2 women in a restaurant are speaking and the name is Hillary Clinton. Then one of their actresses playing Hillary advertises her as a consultant noting that she made “profits so high they scarcely seem legal.”

    When the Clintons left the White House SNL did a skit which ended, “We’re the Clintons. We’re the Mafia in a pickup truck.”

    1. I like Leonard Cohen’s “First we take manhattan” because it’s pol’s song. Rip, he also looks like Michael Cohen, one of Trump’s top men on his organization.

  3. Wait, I don’t watch shit, but isn’t SNL supposed to be a comedy show? When did it become a faggoty whiner circle jerk?

  4. They did this for two reasons.

    1) This is the last hurrah for her to do the character, since Hillary’s profile is sinking like a fucking boulder.

    2) Because these progressive faggots just couldn’t help but politicise what should have been a touching tribute to a great artist.

  5. Well doggonnit… not havin’ a them TV thang jes missin’ me some funnah shtuff.

    I always knew Chappelle was a smart one… specially when he started takin’ on the Luminotti.
