Hollywood attacked Donald Trump nonstop for five years.
Movies, television series, and late night comedy shows dedicated endless space to railing against Trump or Trump-like figures.
But Saturday Night Live surprised everyone by attacking one Democrat Governor.
Saturday Night Live turned into the anti-Trump variety show for a full five years.
Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro, and other liberals lampooned various Trump associates while hardly ever grilling any Democrats.
SNL has yet to go after Joe Biden in any serious way since he assumed office, but the show just skewered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for his grave mistake of putting COVID-positive patients back in nursing homes, then covering up the data.
During a segment on the show, Cuomo – played by Pete Davidson – appeared on a mock talk show where guests apologize for mistakes they’ve made.
“Cuomo” confessed, “Some of the people who died in the nursing homes were not counted as nursing home deaths, they were counted as hospital deaths, which is basically what happens at Disneyworld . . . Okay? People die and they move the bodies. They say, ‘Oh, I guess Brenda died in the parking lot, not on the teacups.’ So, you know, we just did the Disney thing, all right? So, are we done here?”
SNL captured Cuomo’s defiant nature, which hasn’t won him any friends; fellow Democrats have called his threatening tone.
In fact, the corporate press has finally turned against him after exalting him as “America’s Governor” at the height of the pandemic.
Cuomo wrote a self-congratulatory book on how he defeated COVID, and was awarded an Emmy for his press briefings on the virus.
But Cuomo is discovering what Never-Trump Republicans learned; the establishment players will put people on a pedestal or throw them under the bus whenever it suits them.
Biden is currently being protected by the establishment, but it’s clear they want Kamala Harris in place.
She’s being primed as the leader of the party despite getting zero traction during the primary process.
Her candidacy has been manufactured out of whole cloth.
No one should be surprised if more “mainstream” stories about Biden’s declining mental faculties begin to crop up.
In the meantime, SNL and other late night shows will give the Biden administration a pass for all of their damaging moves.
