The New York Times devotes a long article, with video clips, to last nightâ€™s Saturday Night Live show. It appears that the entire program was devoted to attacking President Trump, or members of his administration or family.
The opening sequence portrayed Trump as a coward. There is an alien invasion:
Mr. Baldwin â€¦ began by asking, â€œWho here loves Trump?â€
â€œI know this guy over here, he loves Trump,â€ he said, pointing at what turned out to be a charred corpse.
The actress Scarlett Johansson did a mock perfume commercial that attacked Ivanka Trump. (â€œA final voice-over for Complicit described it as â€˜the fragrance for the woman who could stop all this, but wonâ€™t.â€™â€) These guys are a barrel of laughs.
SNL also had a woman playing Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a segment that depicted Sessions as a Southern cracker and a liar. He was seated next to Weird Al Franken, who was portrayed as a voice of reason.
As Mr. Sessions, Ms. McKinnon said, â€œPeople donâ€™t realize this, but Al and I are actually great friends.â€ In the past, she said, she took him white-water rafting, and, in return, â€œAl showed me Jew stuff.â€
This is supposed to be a comedy show, right? If the Times account is accurate, there doesnâ€™t appear to have been a single amusing moment.
The Associated Press considers Saturday Night Live to be newsworthy, too. It focused on the programâ€™s smearing of Ivanka Trump:
The biting humor of â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ took aim at another Trump this week â€” first daughter Ivanka.
The long-standing comedy show skewered President Donald Trumpâ€™s elder daughter with a faux perfume ad, starring actress Scarlett Johansson. The name of the perfume? Complicit.
So why is a bad Democratic Party comedy show, which has attacked Republicans in the same boring way for 40 years, taken seriously as news? That isnâ€™t hard to figure out. The Times and the AP would like to engage in the same vicious smears that the â€œcomediansâ€ of Saturday Night Live do, but they have to maintain some pretense of being news outlets rather than propaganda machines. The solution? Enthusiastic coverage of the left-wing â€œcomedyâ€ show with blow-by-blow repetition of its pro-Democratic Party smears.
That may or may not be effectiveâ€“I can hardly believe that it isâ€“but it certainly isnâ€™t news, except of the fake variety.
