‘SNL’ Mocks Violence at Trump Rallies
Saturday Night Live poked fun at Donald Trump and devoted an entire segment to the violence that keeps occurring at his campaign rallies.
“Saturday Night Live” opened its latest show on a political note, highlighting Ben Carson’s endorsement of Donald Trump.
“Dr. Ben Carson is a very special man. And for once I don’t mean that as an insult to the mentally challenged,” Trump, played by Darrell Hammond, said while introducing Carson at a campaign event.
“Donald and I are very different,” Jay Pharoah’s Carson responded. “We’re like night and day. Ebony and orangey.”
The Hill reports:
Larry David also reprised his role as Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the skit, discussing the senator’s surprise win in Michigan.
“I want to thank everyone who voted for me and apologize to everyone else for making your Facebook feed so, so annoying,” he told CNN’s Jake Tapper, played by Beck Bennett. “I mean, I love my supporters, but they’re too much. Right?”
The skit ended with a report of more violence at a Trump rally, with Carson “attacked by an angry mob that mistook him for a protester.”
“Guys, what did I say?” Hammond’s Trump asks as Pharoah’s Carson holds a “Trump Steak” over his eye. “Not this one.”
