‘Saturday Night Live’ is back and as hilarious as ever, with an opening segment poking fun at Donald Trump’s recent campaign rally violence.
The scenario had an actor playing CNN’s Jake Tapper checking in with the candidates to see what they were up to. They showed actors playing Republican presidential candidates Ben Carson and Donald Trump, with the former throwing his support behind the latter, only to become a victim of the brawls that have been breaking out against African-Americans at Donald’s recent rallies.
Jake noted that former rival Ben had just thrown his support behind the businessman. Donald then said “My guest today is so tremendous, Ben Carson is a very special man and for once I don’t mean that to the mentally challenged.” OUCH!
Ben’s character then noted, “I am so thrilled to be here today. Donald and I are very different, ebony and orange. I questioned his knowledge on health care and he called me a psycho and a child molester,” to which Donald said, “In my defense he’s a pretty creepy dude,” noting that he looks like he drives a hollowed out ice cream truck. Ben then noted, “Bye America, it’s been weird.” Um, yeah!
Jake then threw back to breaking news of another incident of violence at a Donald Trump rally where Ben had been attacked by an angry mob who mistook him for a protester, which showed Ben with a big steak over his right eye from being beaten while Donald looked sullen.
Ben said “It’s okay, I’m fine” to which Donald yelled at his audience “Guys, what did I say, not this one! This is one of the good ones.” Yowza! What a slam at the real violence against blacks that has been happening at the real Donald’s rallies!
“They’re just lucky I don’t have my knife on me. I’ve been known to cut a b*tch,” Ben responded, to which Donald said “Don’t worry, we’ve got a very classy Trump steak on his eye. And to the media, please don’t use this as an excuse to call me racist.” How incredibly topical!
