“Saturday Night Live” isn’t terrified to bite the hand that feeds it.During the
show’s “Weekend Update” area, host Michael Che dropped a joke that painted NBC– which hosted Thursday’s town hall with Donald Trump– in a very unfavorable light.
“NBC had a town hall with president Trump,” Che stated. “Due to the fact that what can I say? We have a type.”
As Che had a look at the punchline, “SNL” put up images of three previous NBC characters who have actually all been linked of sexual misconduct: Former “Cosby Program” star Bill Cosby, previous “Today” host Matt Lauer, and Trump, who formerly hosted “The Apprentice” on the network.Advertisement The joke drew surprised laughs from the crowd.Prior to Thursday’s city center, more than 100 Hollywood authors, actors, directors and producers sent a letter to NBC and Comcast executives slamming the network for selecting to air Trump’s town hall at the exact time as Biden’s formerly prepared town hall. The letter, signed by many present and previous NBCUniversal partners, slammed the business for”making it possible for the President’s bad routines.”Alec Baldwin, who plays Trump on”SNL,”slammed the company in a series of tweets, motivating audiences
to boycott the town hall and specifying that NBC News executives “aren’t very smart.”Get Boston.com’s web browser informs: Make it possible for breaking news informs straight to your web browser.Turn on alerts Great, you’re signed up
