Video: Saturday Night Live Does the Third Debate

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 2:03 pm

Early on in this clip, they make a crack to this effect: you may not want to watch this debate…but hey, you’ve come this far.

That’s kind of how I feel about this clip. It may not be as good as the others, but neither was the third debate — and you watched that, right?

(Oh, you didn’t? Well…)

  2. papertiger, where’s that goofy ol’ ropelight?
    Did the Russians get him?
    He should be here pounding the table about how Trump’s going to win even though it appears he’s going to get blown out.

  3. We are not the same person I tell you.

    Maybe ropelight blew a fuse on the transmitter.

    Anyhow, I miss him too.

  4. Vote for Trump. He’ll bring ropelight back from exile.

  5. I think the CIA got tired of ropelight’s goofy conspiracy theories about John Hinckley, and so they kidnapped him and took him to a secret prison off the coast of Newfoundland.
    What an old kook.

  6. I think Jeb has moved on. And Obama gave Hinckley a pardon maybe.

  9. Baldwin’s ex won an Oscar playing a hooker. Since then, he’s been prostituting himself in everything from credit card commercials to SNL skits to try and live it down. If ’30 Rock’ – the building and the show– were a bar he’d be perched on the last stool ’til closing time trying to prove he’s as ‘worthy’ of a golden statue as she was.

  10. Hope springs eternal when SNL does election comedy but let’s face it, this show still stinks. NBC could broadcast 90 minutes of carp swimming in a fish tank and their target audience would put down the bong and watch.

    The writing is consistently poor, the ‘go-to’ skits tired and unimaginative and this week’s host made a complete ass of himself participating in some of the lamest skits ever aired. Hanks is clearly too old to be hamming it up for these kind of shows anymore. Speaking of which, Gaga was 10 lbs., of ham short of a deli counter as well. Both these artists are better than the material SNL provides and have outgrown this lousy show.

    Hammond had the Trump impression nailed and was funny; Baldwin just seethes anger and his personal angst oozes through the make up. Sadder still is SNL’s habit to hire crutches outside the existing cast; a weakness which is a back-handed slap to the hired ensemble by the producer.

    This show is tired. The Weather Channel has more laughs. Time to light a fire under the writers on SNL– or better still, simply fire Lorne Michaels.

  11. oh the horror, they didn’t point out she blurting out the nuclear response times, imagine if trump had done it, morgan freeman’s inkind contribution, madam secretary does a better job of earnestly replicating the west wing formula, the president, the live carradine, apparently is running as an independent because the sky dragon fixation was too much for the party,

  12. Why Mexico is giving out half a million rape whistles.

    Cutting to the chase:

    Nearly half of Mexican women have been subjected to rape, groping or other forms of sexual violence, according to the United Nations, which ranks Mexico among the most violent countries for women.

  13. High-profile rape and harassment cases have spurred nationwide street protests, including marches of thousands of women in 40 cities this past spring and other demonstrations this week.

    WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED this past spring to bring this out in the open, I wonder?

  14. The debate parodies (and weekend Update) and maybe sometimes a sketch or two are the only good parts of the show. The debate parodies are politically biased – they seem geareed to Bernie sanders supporters and don’t quite portray Hillary Clinton as a good person. A few things were on the mark. They even had what prefacted the “nasty women” comment right but made it out like Trump had planned to say those two words. The question about accepting the election was made to seem like it was prompted by the mmoderator saying it looks like you are going to lose. They had Donad=ld trump starting to say she hasn’t done anything in 30 years and then Chris wallce saying to Donald Trump oh no don’t get her started, and then she went with her “record: – they accept it but don’t think much of it. Chris Wallacxe asks a question about e0-mails,a nd “Hillary: says I’m glad you asked it, then we hear her saying Carol – like she;s getting soemthing provately – then she contineus in answer to your a queston and goes on about Trump. And “Chris Wallace” says youre never going to answer a question about your e-mails, and “Hillary: yes, but it was cute seeing you try. They are playing her sas very female. In another debate parody she starts crying about seeing her husbands mistresseses (only one was – two were assaulted or and one was the victim of a rapist whom Hillary got off pretty much scoot free) then “Hillary” suddenly switches to “I am made of steel” “Hi ladies”

  15. And they have – this is actually very fair – Trump wandering all over the place abouy Mosul and Aleppo (in the parody, a response to a question about fighting ISIS – even when thepraody has snippets that are right the questions are different) and then “Chris Wallace” says his time is up and “Donald Trump” breathes a sigh of relief, which he didn’t, but the idea is sometimes to portray what are their “real thoughts” and it’s a bit funny because nobody is a debate usually wants his time to speak to end.
