Saturday Night Live has finally returned to the White House briefing room, with it’s recent skit portraying press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as if she were in a music video. The skit shows Sanders, played by brilliantly by cast member Aidy Bryant, making a joke with reporters about the briefing.
“In a minute, I’m gonna tell you guys a six-minute riddle about taxes,” Bryant says. “But first, I’m gonna take some questions.”
And when a faux reporter questions Bryant on former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s role, she joke that he is a “carnie.”
“We barely even knew these guys. They were like carnies, just making their way through town, one night only,” Bryant says.
Before bursting into song:
“I used to hold my freak back, now I’m letting go. I make my own choice. Bitch, I run this show. So leave the lights on. No, you can’t make me behave.”
And in response to John Kelly’s Civil War “compromise” remarks, she explained to reporters:
“History is a bottle of moments that is filled with time and horses and the invention of the telephone, OK? But if you don’t like that, you have got to take it up with Father Time.”
While at the same time stating that every woman who has recently accused Trump of sexual misconduct is a liar, before going into a complicated riddle about 10 people trying to split the tab at a bar.
“What’s wrong with being, what’s wrong with being, what’s wrong with being confident?!”
Saturday Night Live is one of the many politically charged comedy programs keeping America sane nowadays, if we can’t escape the horribly dread that is Donald Trump, we can hopefully at least laugh at it.
