Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller appeared on Saturday Night Live as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a Meet the Parents-style interrogation.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News that Stephen Colbert’s jokes about him are a “danger” to the nation.
Said Nunes: “This is the danger that we have in this country. The left controls not only the universities in this country, but they also control Hollywood in this country, and the mainstream media, so conservatives in this country are under attack. They attack people who are trying to get to the truth.”
Nunes is referring to the sketch below:
“I said I was going to run this country like a business. That business is a Waffle House at 2 a.m.”
“Donny Q. Trump came in and suddenly I’m looking pretty sweet by comparison.”
“You gotta understand, the guy didn’t leave me a trail of breadcrumbs. He left me full loaves.”
“Even the stuff that’s not true, it’s true.”
“All I need from you is to go to prison for a very, very long time. And in return, I still get to be president, which I hate, but I’m too proud to quit ’cause that’s not fair.”
“Its been a big week, folks. We’re getting rid of everything Obama did — health care, the Iran deal. And we’re ripping out all the vegetables in Michelle’s garden and we’re planting McNuggets. McNuggets. Gotta love the McNuggets.”
“I actually love football… People say I remind them of a football player because I’m combative, I like to win, and I might have a degenerative brain disease.”
There’s no one better at trolling Donald Trump than former Mexican President Vicente Fox.
“I thought the campaign was the World Series, and it turned out it was spring training. On Election Day, it was like, ‘Ohh, no, the season’s starting now.'”
— “Late Night” host Seth Myers, quoted by Vox.
CNN: “For six months, late-night hosts have pilloried the President for a long litany of incidents ripe for satire, from shoving a prime minister out of the way to attacking his own attorney general. The past weekend’s events in Charlottesville sparked an unmistakable outpouring of comedic rage, because the President was so late and, to many observers (including most of the roster of late-night hosts) so wishy-washy in expressing his disapproval of groups promoting things as egregiously and indisputably wrong as racism, anti-Semitism, and neo-Nazism.”
“It was the nadir, according to Seth Meyers of NBC, who has been probably the most ferocious critic of the President in late night.”
Melissa McCarthy was back on Saturday Night Live as White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
“Jared, you’re such as inspiration. You showed everybody that if you were born rich and married my daughter, you can do anything you want … Just fix everything, okay?”
