  1. IF SNL was like this for all their skits, everyone would watch.
    But they soooo hate Trump that they are rarely funny anymore. Its all just "yes! I hate him too!, ha ha!".
    …and thats just not very funny.

  2. This was actually pretty funny for SNL. I'm a Madtv guy and they do racial humor a bit racier and ballsier but this was still pretty darn funny .

    i like to watch comedies before
    bed… this just is great.
    SNL should run the UN. They hit the nail and no one is offended.

  4. Guys if I had a time machine I would say they should do political comedy every week except be mean and make stuff up about the current president and not put them in a good life they should just find a major celebrity and seriously do it every week I would laugh every time it would be hilarious somebody with good acting like I don't know one of the Baldwins

  5. 1:45 Doug: "Heck yeah I play that one every week…"

    Keenan: ""Heh yeah well that's good for you…" 😂😂😂😂😂 The way he responds to Doug is just so perfectly dismissive. Love this skit so much.

  6. This was a pretty nice way to articulate some of the similarities between poor black and white people without totally giving way to false equivalence. I like that they captured our, um, occasional over-enthusiasm at having things in common with a white person while they may not react the same way.

  7. There was quite a bit of this type of race humour back in the 70s and 80s. "WKRP In Cincinatti" had some good ones.
