It’s a pretty safe bet that for the next 3 weeks at least we’re going to see Alec Baldwin’s take on Donald Trump happen a lot on Saturday Night Live. SNL’s cold open this weekend was dominated by great performances by both Baldwin and Kate McKinnon as the two Presidential candidates but the show was stolen (as in real life) when Ken Bone appeared.
When the Ken Bone phenomenon became a thing in real life, it was said aloud in the office “so we’re going to see Bobby Moynihan as Ken Bone next week on SNL aren’t we?” And, as sure a shit, that’s what we got. SNL’s Bone is a bit more grabby of the spotlight than he did during the debate but we went to the Bone Zone nontheless.
Trump responded on Twitter that SNL performed a “hit job” on him and that the show is no longer funny and should be canceled. So much musta happened since he hosted the show like a year ago.
Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!
