There are blessed few things in this world that are a simple snack for the mind, body, and soul. And Jason Momoa shaking his money maker to RuPaul’s “Freaky Money” in a half-baked Saturday Night Live sketch called An Extra Christmas Carol is one of them. From Jason’s Land Of Make Believe accent, to his hopeless attempt at making every grain of sugar in his tank shine, to the self-consciously delivered body rolls, we stan a goofy queen. Jason’s “extra ghost”, juxtaposed against a very convincing set, professional costumes and an expertly delivered straight-man performance by Mikey Day, goes down like two buttery, spicy, ginger snaps to the left.
Here’s the skit with a big assist by Kate McKinnon as Tiny Tim who “gets it”.
I want to bury my face in that tumtum something awful. What crimes against humanity do I have to commit in order to be visited by Jason in a shiny lame cape and tear-away pants, being all extra just for me? I would seriously like to know if I just have to be dick to a little kid and grump about Christmas, or if I have to go full genocidal maniac? Okay, maybe I wouldn’t go quite that far, but my morals are flexible when it comes to Jason Momoa.
Porn star and presidential irritant Stormy Daniels popped up during the cold open on Saturday Night Live last night. Stormy is POTUS’ current least favorite person and SNL knows that there’s nothing in the world more funzies than pissing off our humorless egomaniac of a president. So they had her pop up during a Trump sketch amidst a cavalcade of guest stars including Ben Stiller as Trump’s praying-for-death attorney Michael Cohen, Martin Short as Trump’s ethically challenged (and crazy as hell) physician Dr. Harold Bornstein, Scarlett Johansson reprising her Ivanka Trump, and Jimmy Fallon as Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner. SNL’s MVP Kate McKinnon also debuted a startlingly accurate impression of gabby Trump hanger-on Rudy Guiliani, who continues to deplete all of the goodwill he inspired during 9/11.
On Saturday Night Live last night, Alec Baldwin made his 987,829th appearance as Jabba the Trump (in a skit that also featured an appearance by Beck Bennett’s Putin nips), but the skit that’s really making the rounds today is the sexual harassment pop anthem called Welcome To Hell that was cooed out by the women of SNL and Saoirse Ronan (who gave me baby Erika Jayne meets baby Baby Spice. So Fetus Spice, basically).
One of the better sketches from last night’s Saturday Night Live featured their star player Kate McKinnon playing completely delusional #MAGA apologist Kellyane Conway as the murderous clown demon Pennywise from It. Kellyanne actually didn’t need any more makeup or allusions to horror movies to make her more terrifying but this was pretty much spot-on.
You could sort of see her staging a press conference from a sewer due to a nuclear war with North Korea and explaining it away as “President Trump wanted me to demonstrate how this country’s infrastructure is crumbling because of Obama, and I’m in this sewer to highlight all of the damage that POTUS is trying to fix.” Eventually, “Kellywise” manages to bite Anderson Cooper’s arm off and drag him down with her. Honestly, because of the way that things have been going, that doesn’t seem very far-fetched.
Attention enthusiasts know that the Emmys are a tasteful affair; you’ve got to balance out your ass with some class. Thankfully, Ariel Winter showed everyone last night how to do it. Ariel came in a dress by Steven Khalil featuring not one, but two crotch-high leg slits. Angelina, who? I’m sure her dress was very expensive, so for those of you hoping to find the look for less, I would probably suggest Craigslist the day after the next AVN awards.
Several weeks ago, Scarlett Johansson was reportedly seen at a Saturday Night Live after-party putting some mouth moves on Weekend Update’s Colin Jost. Last week E! News asked Colin if he had anything to say about the Scarlett rumors, to which he replied: “What?! No way. No, I’m good.” He also said he was “very happy” in his personal life. Colin didn’t want to talk about it, and that sort of made me think it could have just been a drunken party hookup. As it turns out, it might not be so casual.
