Last week, President Donald Trump was reportedly traumatized by Melissa McCarthy’s impression of his
propaganda minister press secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live. You could tell, just by the fact that he didn’t launch into a Twitler tirade about it. The short-fingered silence was deafening!
One of Donald Trump’s early Sunday morning rituals has been pounding his roasted baby carrot fingers on his phone as he rages against Alec Baldwin and his favorite show Saturday Night Live for making fun of him again. But strangely enough, Trump didn’t fart out a single tweet about Melissa McCarthy’s Emmy-Oscar-Nobel Peace Price-worthy take on Sean Spicer, which was very “Matt Foley on testosterone-laced meth” to me. Even Sean Spicer said words about it and told reporters that he thought Melissa’s drag king impersonation of him was “cute.” But a “top Trump donor” told Politico that Melissa’s Spicer act achieved the impossible: it shut Trump up.
To a country in turmoil, Alec Baldwin’s take on President Donald “Did he really just say that?” Trump on Saturday Night Live has been a gentle, cooling hand on our collective fevered brow.
Melissa McCarthy’s impression of frequently embattled and easily enraged White House press secretary Sean Spicer, which she debuted on SNL last night, should have the same effect on you. It’s always comforting when someone points out that you’re not crazy or imagining things, the situation really IS this batshit crazy and some extra sort of people are, for real, running the world.
Via Vanity Fair:
McCarthy’s version of Spicer cancels the National Parks Service as an aside, ignores concerned questions about Bannon’s role on the N.S.C., uses props to get her point across, and locks a disobedient CNN reporter in a cage.
SNL is pretty much a news source at this point, so they’re serving up as much satire of our current administration as possible. Last night, Alec appeared as Trump earlier in the FIRST cold open of the episode (Melissa yelled out the “Live from New York…” when she ended her sketch). They have enough material to do two cold opens now. Lorne Michaels can’t sleep on his stomach anymore due to the rigid and permanent erection he has over ratings and press and the Trump era is only two weeks in.
You can watch Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer (the only thing she was missing were the purple bags under his eyes that make you wonder if he’s able to sleep ever or at all) below.
Dlisted weekend guy and known malcontent, J. Harvey, is publicly apologizing to actress Kristen Stewart for ever criticizing her lack of emotion in her performances, her general surliness, and this outfit. Stewart’s opening monologue on SNL last night, in which she ridiculed President Donald Trump’s bizarre Twitter obsession with her and former romantic interest Robert Pattinson’s relationship back in the Twilight-era (as well as dropping a “fuck” in at the end for emphasis), has absolved her of any celebrity wrong-doing now and forever, according to Mr. Harvey. He will now binge-watch the Twilight saga for the first time ever as penance. Thank you.
That was the statement my assistant just issued to the AP, Reuters, and the Weekly World News.
Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump started last night’s Saturday Night Live cold open by noting “Yes, this is real life. This is really happening.”
Truer words and all that! It was revealed this week that US intelligence agencies were given info that our incoming president allegedly might have been compromised- sorry, “kompromated-ed,” by the Russians. With what, you ask?
After we learned this past week that both the CIA and the FBI believe that Russia interfered with the election to help Donald Trump win the White House, we’re ready for some cat tranquilizers!
We were also prepped for a Saturday Night Live sketch spoofing this whole sordid mess, which we got. In this era of fake news and the media inadvertently helping His Orange Badness win the presidency, the only news sources that people are actually paying attention to are SNL and that awful man’s tweets. At least one of them is intentionally funny.
In the sketch, Beck Bennett as Russia’s president Vladimir Putin comes tits out down the chimney to wish Trump a Merry Christmas. A crazy thin John Goodman shows up as Rex Tillerson (that’s the oil CEO that Trump chose for Secretary of State). In the sketch (as in life), he knows Vlad somewhat intimately. Broad strokes!
SNL also gifted us with Beck Bennett’s nipples. I didn’t mind that. Beck is kind of underrated in the nipples department. Look what this election has done! It’s rendered me pathetic and thirsty! I heard that, you in the back! No, I wasn’t already pathetic and thirsty (yeah, I was)! Nipples might be the only thing to get us through the next four years.
