SNL Campaigns for Hillary
Former head writer Tina Fey returned to Saturday Night Live as a guest host last night and devoted the opening sketch [video] and “Weekend Update” segment [video] to making fun of the media for their love of Barack Obama and urging people to vote in Texas and Ohio to vote for Hillary Clinton because “bitch is the new black.”
MyDD’s Uncle Wiggly weighs in with, “TINA FEY & SNL LUV HILLARY! BITCH IS THE NEW BLACK !”
Tonights Saturday Night Live opened with a devastating opening skit about how in the tank the news media is for Obama and how totally unfair it is to Hillary. This will become a big deal inside the media “village”. I live in DC and know that every single political reporter and pundit fool watches every SNL during election time and all saw or will see this and they will be shocked, I mean shocked, to find out that THEY WERE THE ONES BEING RIDICULED.
But, what will really set their pinheads all spinning around will be what happened during SNL’s news segment.
That’s when guest host Tina Fey did a very funny commentary on the Weekend Update segment that shockingly was also very pro Hillary.
Jeralyn Merritt is thrilled. In a post entitled, “Saturday Night Live Pulls One Out for Hillary,” she proclaims, “Maybe there’s hope yet.”
Isn’t SNL supposed to be a comedy? Doesn’t this amount to a multi-million dollar campaign contribution to Hillary Clinton from GE?
I like Fey’s work. SNL revived its stature during her tenure and “30 Rock” is quite funny. But the Hillary campaigning was pretty flat.
