Saturday Night Live took aim at the Democrats in a hilarious skit that will probably hit a little too close to home for party loyalists. The skit is fashioned as a DNC ad paid for by Mark Cuban that inadvertently highlights the party’s serious identity problems.
Invigorated by Tuesday’s wins in the blue states of New Jersey and Virginia, the Democrats attempt to introduce voters to “fresh new faces,” such as Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi. But wait, there’s more. Nancy Pelosi is excited to introduce voters to “hot young thing, Elizabeth Warren!”
The skit also highlights the Democrats lack appeal to Midwestern voters. “We can’t just focus on coastal elites,” Kate McKinnon’s says as Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). “We need mouth breathers from Wisconsin.”
After Hillary tries to peddle herself as viable for another presidential run, Donna Brazile promises to “destroy all of this.”
OUCH! The best humor is derived from reality. This skit is going to leave a mark because the Democrats do indeed have an identity crisis. Not many voters are going to want to “put a ring” on any of these candidates. Donna Brazile might have to burn it down in order to rebuild it. If Hillary tries to run again, she might as well bring the match to get things started.
The Democrats keep trotting out the same old faces in an attempt to persuade voters to join them. John previously wrote about how Joe Biden is toying with the idea of launching a White House bid in 2020. Given his proclivity for publicly touching women who aren’t his wife, this may not be the time for the aging former Vice President to toss his hat in the ring.
