Since first eviscerating President Barack Obama more than two months ago in a sketch so brutally honest about this administration that CNN felt that fact-checking was necessary to protect the beloved president, Saturday Night Live has pulled no punches in its political commentary, roasting the president as much–if not more–for his policies than for any personal idiosyncrasies.
This weekend’s opening sketch was a little less policy-centric, but it was no less funny or apropos. Centered on Michaele and Tareq Salahi’s uninvited visit to the very first state dinner held by this administration, it cast a little too much blame on the Secret Service for my taste (though it can’t be easy to implicate White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers in the same sort of context), but it certainly upheld SNL’s continued standard of pointing out this administration’s basic incompetence.
I hope you enjoy it. I certainly did.
