SNL blasts Trump and me­dia cov­er­age

Toronto Star - - ENTERTAINMENT -

There was one fi­nal Satur­day Night Live left be­fore the 2016 elec­tion, but there was no de­bate to send up.

In­stead, SNL went with some pretty strong po­lit­i­cal com­men­tary. And it wasn’t friendly to Don­ald Trump — or the me­dia.

The nine-minute cold open fea­tured Alec Bald­win re­turn­ing as Trump and be­ing in­ter­viewed along­side Hil­lary Clin­ton on CNN. Over the course of the in­ter­view, Trump lit­er­ally kissed an FBI agent, Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin and a mem­ber of the KKK, only to have the host quickly re­turn the dis­cus­sion to Clin­ton’s emails.

Clin­ton’s sup­port­ers have fre­quently ar­gued that the me­dia is ob­sessed with her email is­sue. The Washington Post
