    Democrats are the real clowns and they do their own show. No need to outdo that show.

    Tucker Carlson always has the same look on his face as an old man, walking into a Best Buy, confused and angry.

    I've been on an SNL binge and you really don't realize how shitty the newer seasons are until they pop up after watching stuff from 10 or 20 years ago. This is hot garbage and political pandering masquerading as comedy. Sad really. But that's life I guess.

    So much potential for a Roger Stone impersonation, but so little in delivery. I am underwhelmed.

    Tucker is the man, he hasn't been caught lying a dozen times like Don lemon. It's a shame that snl is so biased. There used to be some bias in the old episodes but at least they were funny. I miss the days of Chris Farley and Eddie Murphy.

    Usually in a skit like this you have one strong performance and the others merely suffice, but in this skit everyone was on their A game. Kate McKinnon's Wilbur Ross is literally perfect as is Cecily Strong's Jeanine Pirro. Alex Moffat and Steve Martin were top notch as well. This skit will be remembered a long time and for good reason.

    Way too on the nose. The problem is not that it's political. It's that it's not clever. All the performers in this sketch are great. They (especially Cecily) deserve better. Lorne once said SNL works best when it's giving you what you expected in a way you did not expect. Since the Fey era, it's way too often given us what we expect exactly the way we would have guessed. Thankfully, great stuff still happens too!

    You know, there are some comedy gold targets on the left too, AOC, shiff, Pelosi etc. In my opinion snl is missing a great chance to be even funnier, but who needs laughs when you can virtue signal?

    The impression of Piro is so great they should mock her show every week, make her the feature and not just a guest. IN fact I iwsh SNL was the woman doing Piro for an hour and then the rest Pete Davidson. Also get rid of the music segment....the bands they have on suck andit usually is just horrible rappers anyway

    I love Steve Martin doing Roger Stone. I would have thought Steve would have picked up on Roger Stone's 'Meth Mouth' where he is constantly licking his dry thin lips during interviews and especially when he is about to lie.

    This is as much of a comedy show as Louder with Crowder. It´s blatantly obvious, they promote the leftist narrative on everything. It feels more like manipulation than comedy.

    I actually met Tucker Carlson once. The minute the show cut to commercial, Tucker pulled out a bottle of (what I assume was) Rolling Rock. All I could think was, “Yeah, I need to be drunk to watch this channel too.”

    Now, was this supposed to be funny? This is pathetic. The actor impersonating Tucker sounds nothing like him, though his look are flattering to Tucker. "Judge Jeannine" got her voice intonation right but looks flabby in comparison.
    And what happened to Steve Martin, who was funny and talented once? No wonder left comedy is in shambles - they are so full of TDS they forgot they're supposed to be entertaining. Sad.....

    Those ridiculous glasses! I lol'd so hard when I saw this for the first time! It's a piece of comedic ART that deserves its place in history. Cecily Strong nails it as Jeanine Pirro, that thing she does with her mouth is freaking genius! It's a scary-true caricature. ...as is Tucker's "listening face." And don't even get me started on the makeup for Wilbur Ross. My GOD! I want an Emmy for this department of SNL. Now please allow me to gush about Steve Martin for a moment, a largely underappreciated unsung hero of US comedy! His blinking is so outrageously funny that I had to watch his entrance twice! DeNiro was off his game in the first couple of sketches, but seemed much better in his last one. Here, Martin OUT-ACTS DeNiro by miles! Let me assert that again for the record: STEVE MARTIN nailed his SNL sketch BETTER than ROBERT DE NIRO! De Niro needs to step up his game to run with the likes of Martin.
