Saturday Night Live is usually known for its’ liberal skits, but this bias shifted last Saturday when a skit made fun of “liberal snowflakes” and their dislike of President Donald Trump.
Three cast members, including this week’s star host, Scarlett Johansson, played scientists who invented a device which is created to “scan the household pet’s mind to translate his thoughts into words.”
The scientists are presenting the project to investors, where Johansson tests the device with her pug Max. At first, Max’s thoughts are common dog phrases. Then, he throws the scientists for a curve.
“I like to play ball. I like purple bird in the window. I like park and leash, and I like Trump. He’s my man.”
The scientists were unpleasantly surprised by Max’s comment about Trump, and suggest that it was a system glitch.
Max quickly responded,
“There’s no glitch. Donald Trump is our president. He carried the Electoral College fair and square.”
The scientists proposed that there was something wrong with Max, to which he replied, “I absolutely do [like Trump]. Trump has his issues, but one big change is better than business as usual.”
The scientists continuously rebutted Max’s opinions about Trump in disbelief, but he did not stop there.
“The DOW is up 2,700 points since he was elected, what’s not to like?” Max said regarding Trump.
“It’s that condescending attitude that made people want to vote for Trump in the first place. As your friend, I don’t want to see your tax dollars going to health care for illegals.”
During a debate about Trump’s policies, Johansson asked Max, “What about his record on women’s rights?” She continued, “Don’t you want me to have a choice over my own body?”
“You didn’t afford me a choice when you cut off my balls!” Max angrily replied.
The dog added, “You just assume that because I’m a Trump supporter I’m a xenophobic racist.”
Finally fed up, one investor pulls out a gun to shoot Max.
“Oh for god’s sake,” Max responded to the investor, “I can’t even have a conversation without you liberal snowflakes—”
After the final straw, Johansson takes the helmet off of her dog to put a halt to the dog’s pro-Trump speech. As the scientists exit the room, Johansson puts a “p***y hat” on Max.
SNL often criticizes conservatives on its Saturday night skits, but it’s good to know that the show is capable of making fun of both the right and the left.
