Saturday Night Live Destroys Marjorie Taylor Greene Using Her Own Words. Saturday Night Live finally retired He Who Shall Not Be Named from their cold open and instead aimed their Jewish Laser Beam on the newest member of Congress, QAnon whackjob Marjorie Taylor Greene, played by the brilliant Cecily Strong.
The most ironic part is that they actually used direct quotes from Greene to show just how nuts she actually is (as if we needed more proof, right?). The skit was based around a show called "What Still Works? " which did a rundown on the latest changes to (waves arms around furiously) everything since Joe Biden look office. Kate McKinnon played the tv show host, interviewing a ton of folks, including Greene, GameStop and Tom Brady, who was played by John Krasinski.

The 2018 election ushered in a huge crop of congressional freshmen, and while it was a big win for the Democratic Party, in many ways it was an even bigger win for women. Those women made a show of solidarity at Donald Trump's State of the Union this week by wearing all white, making for a stark display against the sea of mostly white dudes in dark suits on the other side of the chamber.

Watch Tom Hanks mock Trump supporters in SNL’s Black Jeopardy. Saturday Night Live has not been kind on Donald Trump supporters over the past few months. After all, the show directly called them white supremacists a few months ago.

Up until the mid-1970s, the networks had little interest in Saturday late-night shows. After the eleven o’clock news, the airwaves were a bone-yard for local affiliates, the final resting place for schlock movies from the 1950s and ’60s. NBC stations had the option of rerunning recent episodes of “The Tonight Show” to predictably tepid ratings, which did not please either the affiliates or Johnny Carson. When Carson pulled the weekend reruns, preferring to repackage them as “best of ” programs to air on weeknights so that he could enjoy some time off, NBC president Herbert Schlosser and vice president of late night programming Dick Ebersol tapped Lorne Michaels, a veteran of Rowan and Martin’s “Laugh-In,” to create something edgy and new.
