Two weeks later, "Saturday Night Live" did not waste time in politics. The cold opening of the show focused on a number of allegations about the Central American caravan, which The Post Michael E. Miller called "tired men, women and children's waters, only the blistering, bleeding and knit legs" – slowly to the United States. in the caravan they say they want to seek asylum.
As the midterm elections approached, President Trump was painted in the caravan as enemies of the United States. He called the caravan "invasion" and claimed that "unknown Middle Eastern", "criminals and" very tough fighters. "He said he could send up to 15,000 US troops to the Mexican border.
Fox News has added a strong rhetoric to the caravan about the unrest.
The cold opening of SNL is usually organized around the week's news, and often creates games that Trump has told or done. This week, you did not select a different route without a guest, and placed Fox News in the rotating frames.
The concert imagines the image of Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham's "Ingraham Angle". Kate McKinnon takes over Ingraham's role and carries various guests with the caravan, including Fox's host, Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong) and former Wisconsin Sheriff David A., Clarke Jr. (Kenan Thompson).
Throughout the sketch, the three absurd "facts" offer from the caravan to satire form, which has become almost a reality. For example, SNL Ingraham describes the caravan as "slim". There are dozens, perhaps millions of illegal immigrants. . . straight for you and your grandchildren, "he adds." And that's not fear, that's just the truth.
As speakers talk about the caravan, they continue to cut off what they say is a live recording – but it's actually a replica of a store that people, ocean-going crabs and Brad Pitt's zombie movie "World War Z."
For SNL Pirro, for the first time, it seems that the caravan is "everyone you've ever seen in our nightmares, Laura. Guatemala, Mexicans, ISIS, Menendez brothers, 1990 Detroit guns, Thanos and many babadooks.
He then supports Trump's (actual) claim that the caravan also includes the Middle East, although he uses a different term for them: "This caravan Aladdins." The direct flight from Iran to Guatemala was very frequent, and their elephants were considered "service animals" and then they rode straight to Mexico, and they have almost got too much sense. "
The show Clarke, referring to "Birds from Dumbo," warned Ingraham's attention that "all the caravans are over nine months pregnant and the babies are kept to a limit. And then they will literally be pulled.
"And the babies get it, they're pregnant," he added.
The outline also includes some wider jokes about Ingraham and his network.
"Liberal media are trying to get President Trumpis racist, but with the exception of words and actions in their lives, how are they racist?" Tell SNL Ingraham.
"When I hear" white nationalists, "I think of a fun fourth-July grill, the sort that does not have to call the cops," the other says.
Finally, "Fox News offers black and spanish voters tips." These tips are "never vote on Tuesday" and "you have voted. You may not remember, but you did it.
He also refers to Ingraham's problems in sponsoring after flooding the Parkland shooter survivor. In the imagination of SNL, the only advertiser who had abandoned hot ice cream, "My Hemorrhoid Donut", medical shoes, and a fictional new book, Brian Kilmeade called "Fox and Friends": "Andrew Jackson and the battle for Hillary's e-mails . "
Oh and the White Castle – "Wait for Whites? Yes, please."
