Is there a joke here? Isn’t this just what politics-as-usual looks like in 2019?
The latest Saturday Night Live cold open paid a visit to NBC’s Meet the Press, as host Chuck Todd (Kyle Mooney) sits down with three key GOP legislators — Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. Susan Collins, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — to ask an important question. What would it take to make you stop supporting Donald Trump?
The answer, in real life and in joke life, is absolutely nothing. This isn’t so much a comedy sketch as it is a cold, hard slap in the face from reality. (Harder, daddy?)
