While SNL hailed Barack Obama as the “world’s greatest president” on their show two weeks ago, this week they attacked Donald Trump as a “little white bitch” with the intelligence of a small child.
From The Washington Post:
This week’s cold open began with Baldwin asking an aide whether daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, are around. “They always keep me so calm and make sure I don’t do anything too crazy,” he says.
No, an aide tells him, as they don’t work on the Sabbath.
“Perfect: when the Jews are away, the goys will play,” Baldwin-as-Trump says. “Send in Steve Bannon.”
What did they mean by this?
Was it a reference to the recent article in The Jewish Daily Forward lamenting that President Trump is not a puppet of Jared Kushner but is instead closer to the “devil” Stephen Bannon?
Really makes you think.
In rolls a ghoulish, skeletal character, intended to be the senior White House strategist. This isn’t the first time SNL had what’s basically the grim reaper portray Bannon. “Hello, Donald. I have arrived,” the fake Bannon says.
“Steve, you look rested,” Baldwin-as-Trump quips. “Not me, I’ve had a long day. I’m tired and cranky. And I feel like I could just freak out on somebody.”
And so go the phone calls, with Bannon nudging Trump to make them as even as they go quite disastrously.[…]Then, Bannon urges Trump to call “some random little country to show them who’s boss.”
So the president dials Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe.
“You think you are a real dictator?” Mugabe asks. “I will rip out your spine and drink from your skull! You cannot even walk down stairs, you little white b—-! Don’t you ever call Zimbabwe again!”
The audience cheered this — wildly. A foreign dictator calling our newly elected president a “little white bitch” was the highlight of the sketch.
Contrast this with Obama being portrayed as “The Rock” just two years ago.
The masks are coming off.
