‘SNL’ won’t let Donald Trump get away with anything! After he made some seriously harsh comments about women on March 30, ‘Saturday Night Live’ totally mocked his misogyny in the cold open! Watch a clip of it here!
Donald Trump‘s attacks on women are getting attacked by Saturday Night Live! As the April 2 episode began, SNL immediately laid into Trump for his recent comments about punishing women who get abortions. In fact, the show poked fun at Donald’s women-hating ways by showing the 69-year-old Republican candidate lead a “women suck” cheer!
Right out of the gate, CNN news anchor Kate Bolduan (Kate McKinnon) brought up Donald’s ruthless retweeting of a “sexist, unflattering” picture of Ted Cruz‘s wife, quickly following it up with an attack on his brutal comment that women who get abortions should be punished. Considering those are two extremely harsh moves on Donald’s part, we can’t blame SNL for calling him out about it in the opening of the show. They even took the mocking one step further by including Trump himself (well, Darrell Hammond‘s Trump) — who started a “Women suck” chant!
Cutting to a clip of Darrell’s Trump at one of his rallies, he leads the crowd in an ultra-offensive chant, “When I say ‘women,’ you say ‘suck.'” After his abortion comment and all the nasty things Donald has said about Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, that cheer does kind of sound like something Donald would initiate!
It wasn’t just Donald’s misogynistic actions they mocked, either — they also made fun of his uncomfortably complementary comments about his daughter, Ivanka Trump! “Isn’t my daughter Ivanka just the best? She’s so smart, so talented, and what a rack,” Donald said. “She just had a baby so can you imagine that rack now? It is just tremendous.”
But SNL didn’t stop the Trump mockery there — Colin Jost put Donald on blast again during “Weekend Update,” sarcastically quipping that “Women’s history month really ended on a high note” all thanks to Donald. Clearly everything Donald says is perfect bait for SNL skits, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see another Trump-blasting sketch in next week’s episode!
