SNL Cast Temporarily Cans Anti-Trumpery, Celebrates Mothers in Cold Open
And a happy Mother's Day to all you female havers of children out there. Today is that special day where we give thanks to moms for all they've done for us over the years. All the Capri-Suns with perfectly-inserted straws. All the field dressings on our skinned knees
It's such a special occasion, in fact, Saturday Night Live managed to nix their traditional anti-Trump cold open for a touching and comedic tribute to mommies:
“Normally we open this show with a political sketch, which can sometimes be divisive. But since tomorrow is Mother’s Day, we’re going to focus on something we can all agree on: mothers,” Aidy Bryant explained, standing next to her mom.
The open was not completely politics-free, however, with some of the moms giving their take of all the Trump jokes.
Luke Null‘s mom wondered why her son’s show didn’t focus more on “Crooked Hillary.”
“Enough with the Trump jokes,” she scolded.
Chris Redd‘s mom then told her son, “I don’t understand why everyone focuses on Trump when you should be focusing on Jesus.”
Redd replied, “Well, Jesus isn’t President ma.”
“And that’s the problem,” she snapped back.
Well, hows about that. SNL managed to mostly put their anti-Trumpery aside for five minutes, while even poking fun at their own rampant biases. Not bad, guys.
I know it might seem silly we're giving SNL props for not being douchetastic for five minutes, but at least they have that little shred of decency. Which is more than we can say for the rest of the left, who hijack motherdom to advocate for debraining tiny tots. Or to push "inclusivity."
I have no doubt SNL will be back to bashing the Trumpinator next week, but mad props to them for temporarily shedding the anti-Trumpery and even taking a few comedic shots at themselves. It's good to know some on the left can still show appreciation to their maternal units without dragging the Orange Man into the mix.
Speaking of moms:
