SNL Absolutely Roasts Political Figure By Objectively Describing What They Did

Published Friday, December 6th, 2019

This past Saturday, SNL absolutely roasted a number of political figures by objectively stating what they did.

“The cold open is our chance to make the largest cultural impact with our comedy,” explained head writer James McDavis. “We figured we could really take a jab at the current administration by having celebrities straightforwardly recount the past week’s headlines.”

“In addition to having the legendary Alec Baldwin reprise his role as Trump, we are looking to get Tim Robinson here to play President Zelensky,” said McDavis. “Wouldn’t it be thrilling television to have Baldwin and Robinson read a transcript word for word?”

During the Weekend Update segment, SNL cleverly recreated a newsroom setting in which all punchlines were replaced with New York Times headlines.
