“You have got to be kidding me” – was my first thought when I saw the C-Span video of Rep.(D-CA): “I rise today to encourage to dis-invite Donald Trump from hosting bla, bla, bla. “Trump will compromise the integrity of their show….bla, bla, bla….He has made racist remarks, bla, bla, bla….” Sanchez’s remarks were of her own biased opinion based on skewed ideas and no real facts. There was really no place for it on the congressional floor. It was totally out of place.
Then I turn on Fox just to see what they are up too and there it is again….”Petition calling for Saturday Night Live to drop Trump as guest host, bla, bla, bla…”
It got me wondering about this Saturday Night Live program….the one they spew as full of integrity. I wondered if there was another show that I didn’t know about? Or was this the same one that makes fun of everyone in the most derogatory manner? Is this the same program that disses politicians and well meaning others? The same program that got comedian Leslie Jones in trouble last year for a demeaning skit on slavery? The same program that did a skit on White people? The same program that had fun dissing Sarah Palin? The same program that got in trouble for a skit that used the word for a specific male body part in it over 26 times along with a song about it? The same program that made light of domestic violence in a program and another mocking Christianity and Jesus?
If anything I was wondering why Trump was agreeing to host it at all? But, it does appeal to the liberal left and others who like controversial and degrading comedy. Perhaps those who don’t want Trump to host are afraid he may clean up their brand a bit. Actually a lot! Or maybe, just maybe he will give it a shot of class and some better ratings?
