I liked SNL, but now they are just obnoxious to watch. They are just mean at this point, and some joke are really of poor taste.

For example, on this video, SNL openly calls for war with Russia, mentioning Nazi Germany. I was aghast when I heard this joke of such poor taste, especially when millions of Russian people died by the hands of Nazi Germany. And the audience applauding to it. That was really awful.

On this video, Trump is presented ridiculously racist, Alec Baldwin putting word into his mouth that Trump never said, and therefore taking his Trump's parody bit too far, almost to the point of open hatred.

I find Trump to be more funny than these jokes.

The anti-pc crowd getting their feelings hurt over a joke is really something.

They have been like that since the early 2000s. I stopped watching because its not funny. I did laugh when they were crying after Trump won.

Sadly, for me at least, SNL died when Eddie Murphy left the show.

It was not the same after Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi left.

Apparently the Trump fans have forgotten how much fun SNL had with Clinton*...

You guys won, stop being such a bunch of hypocritical weenies. That has positives, and that has negatives. Now bend over, spread your cheeks, and say "Ahhh" while you rule the free world.

*Bill Clinton, I mean.

I still very much enjoy SNL myself. They're just doing what they've always done and I still find it quite funny for the most part.

@jhonMalcovich:

They're doing what people do best. Taking advantage of a fucked up situation. Whether it's funny or not is just personal taste but is it not contradictory to say that this should be stopped because it's mean? The whole battle over politically correct is all about practicing freedom of speech. Mocking Trump is just that.

And they (SNL) aren't making up any of this themselves, that is what is most amazing. All of this is actually happening!

Ever wanted Donald Trump and Steve Harvey? Actually happened

I thought if you were going to brainwash people, you would need a good front to lure them in. SNL has no real front (comedy) in which to fool people into it's trap.

Let's be honest - hasn't mainstream media been a liberal brainwashing tool for quite some time now? In the form of news, comedy, whatever be it - liberal doctrine is pretty much slipped in ubiquitously. I think the idea is that when they push it so much and so hard, people just become blind to it and don't even really realize it's propaganda anymore. It takes advantage of the ignorant young and ignorant old alike - particularly naive people who just want to "fit in", usually afraid to risk alienation by adhering to any particular set of solid values while maintaining some sort of impression they're morally superior.

@jhonMalcovich: SNL is a sketch show which takes it´s base in current events in news, mainstream media, tv etc.

And if you look back at previous shows they have not been worse to Trump or republicans than they have with Clinton or Obama.

It´s a comedy show nothing else.

I haven't watched SNL for at least 15 years, I'll catch a skit here and there on YouTube and the results are always the same, pure crap.

Seeing the ratings of this show would be interesting although I doubt there is much on at 11:30 pm est worthy of much competition. To me I stopped watching it during the time when Ferrell left along with Dresch (Debbie Downer). The show used to be great when it came to commercial parodies along with the usual everyday parody of politics and world events but the impression I get is one of sub-par writers and performers.

Don't know. I occasionally stumble upon it while channel-surfing. But, I don't really watch it. A little too corny to me.

SNL has been doing this since the Beginning.

It's just we've never had a President be such a whiny little bitch about it.

I still watch it because I enjoy watching the helpless left waste their lives trying to stop what cannot be stopped.

Don't watch it if you don't like it, but many people still find it funny. As long as the ratings are there, I don't see NBC dropping it anytime soon.

I haven't heard of SNL until it popped up on youtube's trending.

Seemed to think it was funnier than it was, maybe it's an American thing, I didn't get it.

media has always been used as a tool for shaping societies thoughts and leanings.

Theorist have been writing about this for 100 years.

All forms of media are brainwashing the masses its just how much and in what ways, and if its intentional.

Yes, almost all comedy is just part of a liberal plot. Dennis Miller has been the only funny comedian of the last 2 decades.

Not entirely; it's a money making machine that keeps the citizens in a null state. They purposefully shat on Trump 24/7 to give him exposure which, in turn, gives them content that is abundant and replenishes practically everyday. But yea, from a simpler perspective, it's a liberal brainwashing tool.

I remember seeing this sketch they did with Tom Hanks where he was a conservative that went on a black gameshow, and it highlighted ways that conservatives and blacks have similarities despite their differences. I thought it was pretty clever, and not terribly biased. I assume there are other occasionally middle-ground skits on the show. But I wouldn't be surprised if most of the show is Left-leaning, considering that it is made in New York and most entertainers nowadays are liberals.
