    Why don’t we make Alec Baldwin POTUS?

    This article sums up what I think about SNL. http://www.theverge.com/2016/10/4/13162506/saturday-night-live-donald-trump-weekend-update-importance-of-comedy

    In his recent film Don’t Think Twice, Mike Birbiglia asks whether Saturday Night Live has ever been funny, or if everyone just thinks it “used” to be funny because everyone used to be younger and easier to shock and please. That’s always been the SNL scam: convincing America that an institution is worth the time, money, and centrality in pop culture simply because it’s been around so long, and it meant something to its viewers at some point in their personal histories. But if it isn’t doing anything useful or daring with that weight, there’s no reason for it to exist. SNL can’t have it both ways — it can’t be a beloved cultural institution with bragging rights about carrying the country through hard times, and then pass the buck when we most need bold, incisive satire to upend the status quo and expose the ridiculousness of the things we’re taking for granted. That’s what satire is for.

    When Trump hosted SNL last September, there were very few jokes at his expense. Che and Jost defended the choice, saying that the harder jokes were coming, that they were being saved, and we would see them later. So? Bring them on. We’re running out of time.

    Pee isn’t going to do it.

  3. I was around when SNL began and fell off the bandwagon long ago for many reasons, one of them being it airs at 11:30 PM. However, that said, I’m baaaccccckkkk ! Watching Meet the Press right now and always flabbergasted. Big in my mind is how Trump can say anything about John Lewis and his opinions when he delegitimized Pres. Obama with the Birther issue over and over and over. He is so blind to his own behavior and its continued presence on tape/audio and in people’s memory, I just can’t fathom him.
