Is SNL aiming to take down Hillary?

Is SNL aiming to take down Hillary?

Cementing Hillary’s persona as manipulative and secretive could be her undoing.

Saturday Night Live has a history of lampooning the right candidate at the right time. Whether on purpose, or just as a result of tapping into the zeitgeist and saying what the majority of their fan base is thinking, the SNL players have taken out political power players from Sarah Palin to George W. Bush; and now, they’re setting their sights on the most high profile would-be candidate in American politics.

Hillary Clinton, welcome to 30 Rock.

Kate McKinnon’s latest cold open portraying Hillary Clinton as a (jocularly) manipulative but (completely not) relatable (possible!) candidate could be the beginning of another Tina Fey-esque assault on a less-than-desirable figurehead.

You be the judge:

“This is not how Hillary Clinton goes down! I mean, what did you think my e-mails said? ‘Hi, it’s Hillary, I really screwed up on Benghazi today.’ Please. HEH HEH HEH! I wasn’t born yesterday; I was born 67 years ago and I have been planning on being president ever since. There will be NO mistakes in my rise to the top—if I decide to run!?

If I were Hillary, I’d be in my war room right now, because Kate McKinnon has managed to turn a cutthroat, cold, calculating, and malicious career politician into a complete joke—that also makes you a little bit nervous.

Oh, and pay attention—they mention Elizabeth Warren. Not subtle.

If anything comes of this, one thing can be sure—the people demand more!

Clinton and Williams in the same tweet? That’s gotta sting.

This hit really close to home.

I’ll bet the Clinton Smear Machine is already digging in some people’s backgrounds.

That Warren is so quiet these days, tells me she’s already gotten one of those late night calls. O’Malley is from Maryland, which makes Arkansas seem clean by comparison. So, they already have a dossier on him.

Yeah, Hillary will be the nominee… even if an asteroid hits the earth. After all, we already know how roaches and rats would vote.

I bet you the actress lampooning Hillary at SNL will not even receive a nomination for an Emmy… unlike Tina Fey…

I’m still waiting for revenge to come upon her…

    Kate McKinnon is a lesbian, so she may be protected from the usual liberal smear tactics. Also, when I see Hillary taking damage from the press and pop culture, that tells me she’s not the top choice of the Left who probably yearn for a more rabidly Marxist type like Bernie Sanders or Fauxcohontas. These are the same people who couldn’t seem to muster any comedic cracks on Beloved Dearest Leader Emperor Obama, so while they’d perfer Hillary over ANY Republican, until it becomes that binary choice, they may as well try to knock her off to get a truer Stalin-type.

    I’ve always thought the “revenge” was she has to be
    Tina Fey” – an untalented, political troll.

Saturday Night Live was not aiming to take down Hillary.

They thought she might be going down anyway. That’s why there’s so much coverage of this.

Sammy Finkelman | March 8, 2015 at 2:31 pm

what did you think my e-mails said? ‘Hi, it’s Hillary, I really screwed up on Benghazi today.

Maybe: Huma, call Bill up on our secret phone number. I need to talk to him.

Or (somewhat less likely)

Huma — hold off on a press release for a while while we work out a statement.

> Give me some time and we’ll figure out just the right wording. Love, Bill.

>> I cannot convince Barack that the assault on Benghazi was not spontaneous, and now he wants me to issue a statement that will say the video triggered it. I feel trapped. This story will be exploded in no time.

It was never Hillary and was never going to be Hillary. Obama put her away for good. The Left is not like the GOP; they don’t care whose “turn” it is. The idea of Hillary emerging triumphantly from a post-Obama Left is ludicrous. The “zeitgeist” is simply reality and time converging. Warren is the nominee.

Sounds like all is not well in the land of the Comrades. Can you imagine the red fur flying in this knock down between Granny Warren and Moll Clinton?

BrokeGopher | March 8, 2015 at 2:49 pm

Call me paranoid, but could this all be leading to a third Obama term? Either Michelle runs, or Barack does an executive order suspending term limits on the President? (They’re racist, don’t ya know?)

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to BrokeGopher. | March 8, 2015 at 3:56 pm

    Not paranoid, but eminently possible. No, it has not happened before and is out of the experience of Americans. But anyone who has studied how societies in the world have fallen into tyranny can see the parallels.

    1) Rule by either presidential or regulatory decree [at the president’s command] is now the norm and there is no effective counter.

    2) Laws have no real standing and are ignored at will by the president and his subordinates with impunity.

    3) The Constitution has no real standing and is ignored by the president and his subordinates with impunity.

    4) The courts are routinely expected to rule, based not on the law or Constitution, but routinely based on the ideological beliefs of the judges or the amount of pressure the government can put on the judge.

    5) There is no real opposition political party, it having been co-opted and in fact is openly controlled by the president’s political operation.

    6) There is open fear and expectation that the powers of the State will routinely be used against those who oppose the president. And it is in fact routine.

    7) To get accurate political and current events news about this country, it is now necessary to read or listen to foreign media.

    Looking at the American government as it actually stands now, not what we were taught in Civics classes back when American students were taught Civics and American History as a good thing . . . . if Buraq Hussein Obama declared that the 22nd Amendment did not apply to him, who would stop him and how? The DIABLO Party in Congress and across the country would defend him and refuse to help fight him. The media would back him 110% percent. The Courts, as they have in any controversial case opposing the Federal government, would not be able to find anyone with “standing” to file suit. And even if they did, by the time the case got to the Supreme Court; Crown Princess Malia would be acting as Regent in Emperor Obama’s dotage. And she would ignore any adverse ruling.

    I heard that mentioned on talk radio this week.

    Let’s say there’s no viable dim candidate. The POS goes on live TV and says he can’t allow a repub to come in and undo all the glorious work he’s done over the past 8 years and for the good of the country he either:
    10 announces he’;s running for a third term
    or
    2) suspends elections

The far left really wants Warren to be their candidate. Besides imagine duing the debates if the debate brings up Benghazi, can you imagine when talking about a dead Ambassador and three brave Americans, the GOP candidate quotes Hillary, “What Difference Does it Make.”

Bruce Hayden | March 8, 2015 at 3:19 pm

I asked the same question elsewhere this morning. I would suggest that this SNL skit essentially gives the left, and esp. its comics, etc., a green light to poke fun at her, and that is a green light on taking her down. They still don’t have that with Obama – making fun of him is still politically incorrect. Not so, apparently, now with Hillary!

    Not A Member of Any Organized Political in reply to Bruce Hayden. | March 8, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    So you mean……. The Left got the “coded language” to bare their blatant sexism….but the Left still has to keep their extreme and pure racism under control until the Obama is gone.

    wyntre in reply to Bruce Hayden. | March 8, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    It will never be PC to poke fun at the first white half-black POTUS.

      Not A Member of Any Organized Political in reply to wyntre. | March 8, 2015 at 6:15 pm

      At least Black Americans can still look forward to the day when the 1st Black American is elected President.

“There will be NO mistakes in my rise to the top”?

LOL. In that case, she’d better pack her bags for some travel back in time, because she’s made a whole lot of mistakes she’s going to need to fix, including the lame-ass campaign strategy that Ms. “Inevitable Democratic Nominee” and her hand-picked team used in 2008 to get themselves trounced by a neophyte black senator from Chicago.

Oh how brave. How cutting edge. SNL is such a media pioneer.

NOT.

I am no HRC fan but interesting the only pols skewered by SNL over the past few years are women: Palin ring a bell?

You’d think with all the attention on Selma this week and the POS crowing the slaves have finally taken over the WH SNL might have dug into one of the myriad “little white lies” in his autiobio, especially the one stating he was conceived on the eve of one of the marches.

Strange, considering he was born 4 years before Selma.

But never let facts get in the way of LSM’s continued slobber-fest and cover-up for the real villain in the house.

The teflon POS remains unscathed.

Where’s the comedy…?

Much of what the Clinton’s did to their fellow citizens was NOT funny:
Bill and Hillary Clinton should be in prison for crimes against humanity for what they did to their fellow citizens at Waco, TX, on April 19, 1993. The Waco Massacre and church burning (it was not a “compound,” it was their church),was the most brutal, heinous violation of civil, human and Constitutional rights in this nation’s history. Innocent men, women and children were attacked with tanks, poison gas (CS gas turns to cyanide when heated) and burned alive. Those who ran from the church were machine-gunned as documented in the movie “Waco, The Rules of Engagement.” If you doubt how bad this was consider that you never hear the left stream media talk about it. They want it erased from history but this memorial site will remain forever:

And if that weren’t bad enough, Clinton’s thugs then stuck a machine gun in the face of a 5 year old boy and sent him to the communist gulag known as Cuba:

Let’s hope Clinton isn’t teaching President Prompter too many of his old tricks!
Here is a list of the children murdered at Waco:

Hillary’s (probable) email during Benghazi attack:

Hey Valerie, Stevens might be dead. We need to get out in front of this, so I’m going to float the idea it might be some guys out for a walk, upset about a racist American video. Get that out before announcing the ambassador is dead.

Let’s not send support, it will just make it a bigger deal. Military guys are itching to go now, but that doesn’t help the al Qaeda on the run messaging. Make some calls, see if we can get media to downplay it for us. Do we have other red meat to leak for the press as a diversion?

oh .. don’t bother Barack if he’s partying, he’s no help anyway. Send him to his fundraiser in Vegas tomorrow, make it business as usual, downplay the attack.

Hillary

Seems I recall Rush long ago worried about Hillary getting access to personal files on him, and everyone else, when she was at the White House. She probably collected classified dossiers on any potential political opponent, which is maybe how she always gets away with her (alleged) crimes. Thick as Thieves in the Democrat party.

This article is way off! If anything I think the skit Helps her!! In fact I think she should take some tidbits from it when she does publicly comment! SNL has always been a fan of hers. I loved the humor in this skit & it points out the obvious that Hillary Clinton is not stupid enough to be taken down over a silly email thing. I need to check this site probably republican based!

Heh! When I try to view the video I get, “this content is currently unavailable”!

The good news – SNL did a skit lampooning Hillary.
The bad news – SNL’s audience is about 62 people.
