Deadline Hollywood reports:
President Donald Trump says he didn’t watch last night’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live, but he felt the need to weigh about it on Twitter anyway. POTUS trashed the late-night NBC staple — “even though I past hosted it” — as being “no longer funny, no talent or charm. It’s just a political ad for the Dems.” But he did praise musical guest Kanye West’s pro-Trump, MAGA hat-wearing sermon that wrapped the episode.
The Washington Post reports:
The artist formerly(?) known as Kanye West went on a surprising(?) pro-Trump rant at the end of his appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” which never made the air, presumably because of time. West pointed at the audience and accused them of laughing at him. “They bullied me backstage. They said, ‘Don’t go out there with that hat on.’ They bullied me backstage,” West shouted. “They bullied me!” A lone supporter in the audience clapped.

Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) – no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told “no”), was great. He’s leading the charge!
