“The fun of Saturday Night Live was always you never knew which way they leaned politically,” explained Schneider, who acted alongside SNL legends Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Chris Rock, Chris Farley, David Spade and Adam Sandler in the 1990s. “You kind of assumed they would lean more left and liberal, but now the cat’s out of the bag they are completely against Trump, which I think makes it less interesting because you know the direction the piece is going.”
Indeed, the problem with Saturday Night Live (as well as many other comedians, quite frankly) is that they have become far too predictable. Before the show even begins, audiences know what to expect – they’re about to listen to a series of harsh, anti-republican jokes that specifically go after the character of George W. Bush, Donald Trump, and others. Throw in a few comments about Russia or the so-called “racism” that exists on the right, and you’ve got a whole show.
If these comedians – including the ones on Saturday Night Live – truly wanted to keep their audiences laughing and on the edge of their seats, then they would make it so that a left or a right wing slant wasn’t immediately obvious. Some jokes would be about the bleeding heart liberals, and others would be about conservatives. Sadly, that is not even close to what typically takes place today – what many people call “comedy” is really nothing but a hate parade that enjoys slandering those on the right more than anything else.
A perfect example of this is what happened at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night, where “comedian” Michelle Wolf viciously attacked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on an extremely personal level.
“I love you as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale,” Wolf began, comparing the appearance of Sanders to a bossy older woman on that particular show. Later, this conservative hater who calls herself a comedian said, “I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. Like she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. Like maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s lice… It’s probably lice.”
Wolf said that she wasn’t sure what she should call Sanders, questioning whether it would be best to refer to her as “Aunty Huckabee Sanders” or “Cousin Huckabee.” (Related: Left wing hate bigot John Oliver incited a liberal mob to attack a children’s book author.)
For her distasteful and over-the-top “jokes” about the White House Press Secretary, Michelle Wolf has faced a significant amount of backlash. Some are coming out and publicly stating that an apology is in order, and even Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s The Morning Joe condemned Michelle Wolf’s comments on social media. For millions of Americans who were watching at home both on the left and on the right, this wasn’t a comedy routine; it was a hateful, bigoted rant against a woman who didn’t deserve any of it. (Related: Truth be told, the liberals have developed an inescapable hate problem.)
Liberals in this country really should make an effort to get some new material, because to be perfectly honest, the slanderous anti-Trump, anti-conservative routine is getting old. This is particularly important if the left wants to continue holding themselves up as “tolerant” and “compassionate,” because each and every time they slander those on the right, they come across as anything but tolerant and compassionate to millions of Americans across the country.
