The radical left and their unacceptable “resistance” movement have made one thing very clear: Supporting the President is not hip.
This holds especially true for celebrities attempting to cash in Hollywood-sized paychecks in today’s leftist world of show business chicanery. Saturday Night Live, who have made a habit of blatantly lambasting republican Presidents to an extreme degree, have taken their rhetoric to an entirely new level this year with their portrayals of Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, and Sean Spicer. In reality, it would be extremely difficult for anyone on that roster to even suggest that the President is going anything correctly, let alone agree with him.
Yet, that’s exactly what SNL regular and Weekend Update correspondent Michael Che did recently, just before realizing that he was going against the unspoken rules of his liberal overlords and promptly deleting his common sense assessment.
“It’s what Che did recently via Chethinks, his official Instagram account.
“The comedian, who once suggested Donald Trump was racist while the future president was hosting ‘SNL,’ defended Trump’s ‘fake news’ assault on mainstream media. And, in particular, his harsh comments about MSNBC’s Mike Brzezinski.
“’Trump calling a news lady ‘dumb as rocks’ is f*cking funny,’ wrote Che. ‘Look, Trump is not wrong about the media. They’re not good. They DO make sh*t up. They DO sensationalize bullsh*t for ratings and profit.’
“Now, the message is gone. Vanished. Memory holed.”
There is a grand, amazing irony to this entire situation that has so far been ignored: Michael Che’s recurring role as anchor of Weekend Update places him directly in the historical line of fire for fake news.
Weekend Update has been a staple of SNL’s lineup for decades, with the segment making or breaking several prominent comedic personalities as they attempted to domesticate the wildly liberal vitriol of the Saturday Night Live writer’s room. Famous faces such as Colin Quinn and Norm MacDonald brought a sense of sanity back to the show in the mockery of the media displayed via Weekend Update, before being summarily dismissed for younger, more liberal replacements.
While Che’s agreement with Trump’s media theories are certainly not on the level of Norm MacDonald calling Bill Clinton a “murderer” on The View years ago, the young comedian’s unwillingness to stay public in his common sense beliefs has many wondering how far SNL will go to maintain their “resistant” image.
