SNL nails it
The best thing about Bernie Sanders campaign thus far may be the fact that Larry David plays the perfect spitting image of him.
In Saturday’s episode of SNL, the former Seinfeld co-creator did a guest spot in the opening scene where he played the perfect crazy old man debating with Hillary.
The segment reminded viewers of the great political characters of SNL’s past, and gave the world a small glimmer of hope for this already obnoxious election.
SNL has its haters, too
Of course not everyone can be happy, because even when it comes to comedy television someone, somewhere is going to get pissed.
Donald Trump has been scheduled to host the November 7th episode of SNL, and this has pissed some people with loud opinions off.
A coalition of Latino groups have bound together to pressure NBC in switching hosts, claiming it’s a “slap in the face” to the Hispanic community.
A petition has been circulating to drop Trump from the show, and had as many as 117,000 signatures as of Sunday evening, according to Deadline.
You don’t have to like Trump, no one is going to force you to vote for him, and no one is going to force you to watch him host SNL. But come on, it’s going to be a funny episode, don’t fuck that up for the rest of us.
