Republicans across Red State America just got an early Christmas gift to add to their laundry list of FAKE NEWS outlets they sure as shit will never tune in and watch. Saturday Night Live cast member and heavily tatted (I mean, compared to my pale AF body, those arm tattoos make him look like a biker!) Pete Davidson tossed up a photo on Instagram on Friday of his newest ink. And it goes without saying it isn’t exactly going to get him an invite to the Republican National Convention.
Pete’s latest tattoo is obviously none other than Hillary Clinton, located on his right leg. They say “Mom” is the only safe thing a dude can get tatted on his body, but I guess a former Democratic presidential candidate works, too? UsWeekly says HRC herself seemed flattered by the gesture, and commented on the post with a mom joke:
“Thanks, @petedavidson. This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years. But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend.”
Some fans figured that shit was as fake as the tattoos you get in exchange for ten tickets at Chuck E. Cheese. But Pete’s tattoo artist Jon Mesa, who also inked up Miley Cyrus when she was a guest on SNL last month, backed his boy up and confirmed it was very much real. I just don’t get all this questioning over the authenticity of a Hillary tattoo. What we really need to be asking ourselves is why when Pete asked for a Hillary Clinton tattoo, Jon gave him a tattoo that looks more like Pete asked for Mary Tyler Moore circa season 3 of The Mary Tyler Moore Show!
