SNL Ignores Weinstein


Saturday Night Live joined the ranks of entertainment programs being called out for not commenting on sexual harassment allegations against former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Social media users skewered the decades old live sketch comedy show, with many highlighting the programs hypocrisy in not going after one of Hollywood’s biggest players.

‘Why didn’t big mouth Michael Che’ say anything about Harvey Weinstein on SNL “Weekend Update”? He’s got so much opinion about everything else,’ Pastor Darrell Scott asked contentiously.

Like most people, I haven’t watched SNL in years. It was always lefty and always harsher on Republicans, but that didn’t turn me off. I stopped watching because it stopped being funny. When I could watch the entire show and maybe chuckle twice, it just wasn’t worth the time investment anymore.

But now SNL is just yet another leftist propaganda show. Whatever your politics, the Weinstein story is a mine of comedy gold if someone is willing to put in a piece of dynamite. SNL’s unwillingness to do so just confirms what we all already knew… the writers’ politics trumped their commitment to their comedic craft long ago.

    But on the bright side, talk radio and the right and left wings of MSM has been devoting a lot of time about it. More than likely makes up for a comedy show not having a 5 minute skit about it.

    Didn’t you get the memo?

    It is OK to brutalize, hurt, harass, and mastrabate in front of women if you are a liberal….we call the the “Clinton immunity”.

    Feminists have been awfully slow to crucify this guy.

    I’m more feminist on this than Gloria Steinem right now.

    I don’t know what that has to do with a 5 minute skit.

    I don’t know anyone that condones Weinstein’s behavior. If you can name anyone who has come out in support of him, go ahead a name them. Of course there might be some who think that type of behavior makes him eligible to be President. I can name people who voted for and support a current President who fits the bill.
