    (CNN) - Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump was back on the "Saturday Night Live" stage and this time he brought Kanye West with him. Well, at least Chris Redd's version of Kanye West. The NBC variety show opened Saturday night's episode by tackling President Trump's meeting with West and football legend Jim Brown, who was played by Kenan Thompson, earlier this week. "Thank you all for joining us today for this important discussion. It's in no way a publicity stunt," Baldwin's Trump said. Redd's West said that he flew to the meeting using the "power" of his "Make America Great Again"...
  • 'SNL' gets it right: Trump and GOP are clueless about women (believing their own lies again)

    (CNN) -- "Saturday Night Live's" opening sketch last night reflected a reality of today's Republican leaders: They just don't get women. We saw this play out when President Donald Trump (the real one, not Alec Baldwin) declared on Air Force One last night that recently confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was "squeaky clean" and that, in his view, Kavanaugh's biggest supporters were the women of America. Trump claimed women "were in many ways stronger than men in his favor." At that point, he should've just added, "And live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" Trump's remarks would've been a...
  • In SNL’s cold open, Republican senators celebrate Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation

    The Senate voted on Saturday afternoon to confirm Brett M. Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice by the narrowest margin in more than a century. Later that day, Republican lawmakers celebrated raucously — on “Saturday Night Live,” at least. “We could tell that people really wanted Kavanaugh,” Beck Bennett’s Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told CNN anchor Dana Bash, played by Heidi Gardner. “Everyone is pumped, from white men over 60 to white men over 70." Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” blared in the background as Bash turned to other conservative members of the Senate, such...
  • SNL eviscerates Susan Collins for her Kavanaugh yes vote

    Saturday Night Live has lampooned Senate Republicans, imagining them chugging beer in the Senate 'locker room' after successfully confirming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The new SNL episode on Saturday aired just hours after the Senate voted 50-48 nearly along party lines to confirm Kavanaugh, who was then sworn in to the Supreme Court. The cold opened imagined the party-hearty hi-jinks of ecstatic Republican senators, led by a beer-chugging Lindsey Graham, portrayed by Kate McKinnon. 'How amazing is this? We made a lot of women real worried today, but I'm not getting pregnant so I don't care,' said McKinnon's Graham,...

    If you thought Matt Damon was funny, you are a disgrace Excuse me for being blunt. But it’s getting late. We are losing this country. You surely are neither Christian nor Jewish, if you got a laugh from Matt Damon’s lampooning of Brett Kavanaugh on SNL. But you are a Democrat. Is this what’s become of America? We are supposed to be a merciful people. So who are you? What are you? We believe in mercy for the widow and pity for the orphan. If you say Kavanaugh’s wife and daughters are neither of those, I ask – have you...
  • When the Brett Kavanaugh circus ends, we won't forget your sins, Matt Damon

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 10/5/2018 | John Kass
    Future historians probably won’t devote entire volumes to Hollywood actor Matt Damon for his part in the grotesque savaging of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Sadly, Damon will most likely be just a footnote, some jester in motley, participating in the American political circus. It is that circus in which Kavanaugh, a man of exemplary public reputation, has had his honor stripped by the political left, accused without evidence or corroboration, as a high school sexual predator, a gang rapist, a drunken bully and boor. If Damon is remembered at all in this, it will be for a bit part, his mimicry...

    Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live gleefully piled on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and did so less than a year after this very same SNL came out in full-throated support for credibly accused serial groper Al Franken. Let’s back up a bit… The reason Democrats and their establishment media allies are now launching conspiracy theories about Kavanaugh “lying” about his teenage drinking is that the sexual misconduct allegations against him have collapsed. Simply put, by any objective measure, Kavanaugh has been wrongly accused, smeared, a victim of sexual McCarthysim. In my four decades of watching politics, never before have...

    Political commenter Dan Bongino described how scared the Democrats are of rapper Kanye West because he is exposing their evil narrative against Donald Trump. West was attacked for delivering an epic pro-Trump speech during “Saturday Night Live” - claiming producers tried to "bully him" backstage into removing his MAGA hat.

    “Tonight’s SNLperformance is gonna be crazy!!!!,” tweeted Kim Kardashian West to her million followers on Saturday. “Tune in!” On the 44th season opener of “Saturday Night Live,” viewers were expecting Ariana Grande, who canceled because of “emotional reasons.” So Kanye West stepped up to do the honors. West performed three songs, including “I Love it” with Lil Pump and “We Got Love,” with Teyana Taylor. As the credits rolled, West performed “Ghost Town,” wearing one of Donald Trump’s red “Make America Great Again” hat, which producers told him he could not wear on stage. “You see they laughing at me,”...

    Kanye West delivered a speech to the cast and audience of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” in spite of the fact that NBC had already apparently cut the feed, moving to the credits. NBC cut the feed and went to credits, running short on time, before West finished his musical performance — but West went on to deliver a speech in spite of the fact that he was no longer on the air. West, whose support for people like Candace Owens and President Donald Trump has stirred social media to the boiling point on a number of occasions, began by telling...

    Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!

    A Make America Great Again hat-wearing Kanye West ended the 44th season premiere of Saturday Night Live with an impassioned political speech that saw the Grammy-winning fashion icon defend President Donald Trump. “The blacks weren’t always Democrats. You know it’s like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and put them on welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s a Democratic plan,” West said, flanked by SNL cast members and his collaborative musicians Kid Cudi and 070 Shake. “There’s so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, ‘How could...

    Kanye West delivered a speech about President Trump and other political topics to the "Saturday Night Live" audience in the room following one of his performances early Sunday evening. After he performed "Ghost Town" at the end of the 44th season premiere for "SNL," West, who wore a red "Make America Great Again" hat, said he was bullied backstage due to his choice of head-ware. "They bullied me backstage. They said, 'don't go out there with that hat on. They bullied me backstage. They bullied me! And then they say I'm in a sunken place," he said. "You want to...

    After this weekÂ’s devastating hearings involving Christine Blassey Ford, who testified that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 80s, we werenÂ’t sure what SNL would roll out of the gate with. Over the last few years, SNL has been an Emmy winning satire on the state of American politics, but sometimes laughter isnÂ’t enough. When it calls for it, Saturday Night Live doesnÂ’t hesitate to ditch the traditional cold open to address the issues of the week. When the Las Vegas shooting happened, the show opened with James Aldean performing a tribute. Following Donald TrumpÂ’s election,...

    “I’m amazed that Lorne [Michaels] has gone so low. I had to watch a little of it, and I just couldn’t f—ing believe it,” Chase told the Washington Post. “That means a whole generation of s—heads laughs at the worst f—ing humor in the world. You know what I mean? How could you dare give that generation worse s— than they already have in their lives? It just drives me nuts.” It’s not just the current cast that Chase criticized — he hasn’t liked most of the most seasons of “SNL.” “I’d have to say, that after the first two...

    There are critical points about the 70th Emmy Awards to keep in mind, starting with this: The ceremony airs Monday. Typically held on a Sunday, it was punted one day so this year’s host network, NBC, could accommodate its “Sunday Night Football” franchise (New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys, for viewers inclined toward that spectacle). As for what the 8-11 p.m. EDT awards telecast will offer, the basics are 26 categories with nominees including defending drama champ “The Handmaid’s Tale.” It’s challenged by 2016 winner “Game of Thrones,” which aired outside the eligibility window for last year’s awards and wants...

    Former Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) said he hadn't ruled out the possibility of running for public office again during an interview with a CBS Minnesota television station on Monday. Franken attended the dedication of Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig High School on the Leech Lake Indian Reservation. He sat on the Indian Affairs Committee in the U.S. Senate and helped secure $12 million in funding for new facilities to replace the old one, which was in dismal condition. "That means a lot to me. It was very moving for me. It was very gratifying. I put my heart in the job," Franken said....
  • Maya Rudolph Finally Did the Rachel Dolezal Impression We’ve All Been Waiting For

    Rachel Dolezal's 15 minutes of fame have (thankfully) come and gone. But because many comedians — including Dave Chappelle — didn't quite know what to make of her story, most refrained from poking fun at her expense. Maya Rudolph isn't one of them. Since Rudolph can no longer use Saturday Night Live to scratch her impersonation itch, Seth Meyers provided both a forum and and a wig to get her into full #AskRachel character on Monday's Late Night. It doesn't disappoint.
