Video: SNL Nails Trump’s Absurd Romance With Putin
Boom! SNL were in true form this weekend as Alec Baldwin yet again delivered an incredible performance as Trump. In this week’s sketch, SNL nailed the absurd ‘bromance’ between Donald Trump and his “Brothers from another mother,” Vladimir Putin. These two tyrants, who fancy themselves as strong men, are on a collision course
Firstly, can we just accept for a moment how strange it is that Trump, Mr. “Make America Great Again” is refusing to accept that Russia, a long-time U.S. adversary, sabotaged our electoral process? Shouldn’t the proto-fascist elements of Team Trump be outraged? This was, essentially, an act of political terrorism. Putin pulled the strings and millions of swing voters across the Rust Belt danced like little Pinocchio, electing a Manchurian Candidate to dismantle American democracy brick by brick.
Secondly, we all know how Republicans attacked President Obama and Secretary Clinton’s attempt to “Reset” the U.S.-Russian relationship during the first few years of the Obama Administration. In fact, neocons like Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Lindsey Graham used the sour state of U.S.-Russia relations as proof that the reset failed, and the U.S. should take a more bellicose tone with Russia.
Like a broken clock that’s right twice a day, Trump blatantly ripped a page out of President Obama’s playbook throughout the campaign, offering an olive branch to the Russians and proposing effectively the same deal to Putin that Pres. Obama and Sec. Clinton offered in 2009-2010. Of course, Trump is blissfully unaware that his proposed Russian reset is analogous to Pres. Obama’s, although we’re told that Trump will defy the definition of insanity by trying the same thing over and over again and miraculously generating different results because he knows how to “win”.
