We ‘re now halfway through December and this weekend ‘s SNL was fittingly festive.
Matt Damon gave strong performances alongside the rest of the SNL cast and returning special guests such as Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller for a holiday episode that made us feel as warm and giggly as cup of mulled wine. However, what would Christmas be without a Scrooge?
To the surprise of absolutely NO ONE, Trump lost his shit on Sunday morning following the previous night ‘s episode. In particular, regarding the sketch called “It ‘s A Wonderful Trump ‘, which explores what the world would look like if Donald Trump had never been elected president through a lens that is black, white, and hilarious all over.
As they begin their walk through this alternative facts universe, Trump (played as always by Alec Baldwin) wonders, “what are those things on their faces? ‘
To which Kenan Thompson replied, “those are called smiles. ‘
The sketch delivered some of the finest performances from Robert De Niro as Robert Mueller, Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen, and Matt Damon as Brett Kavanaugh, in this alternate timeline that made us laugh as much as it made us sigh and say, “if only. ‘
Trump ‘s reaction, of course, was a 280-character long “ba hum bug ‘
A REAL scandal is the one sided coverage, hour by hour, of networks like NBC & Democrat spin machines like Saturday Night Live. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can ‘t be legal? Only defame & belittle! Collusion?

Well, it doesn ‘t look like his heart (nor his tiny hands) will be growing even one size larger this Christmas.
One group who definitely embraced their sketch feature and had a holly jolly laugh at this week ‘s episode, though, was the popular alt rock band Weezer.
Kenan Thompson and Leslie Jones play a married couple who are new to the neighborhood and, in the spirit of Christmas, have been invited over to their neighbor ‘s house for dinner. What starts off as a lighthearted evening quickly spirals into a heated debate between Jones and Damon, two very passionate self-proclaimed Weezer fans.
The funniest thing about this sketch is that this shit actually happens, whether it ‘s Weezer or some other hit band from the 90 ‘s or 00 ‘s, there ‘s always that one person who has a weirdly strong opinion and ready to throw the fuck down at the drop of a hat over it. Leaving everyone else in the room thinking exactly the same thing as the rest of this dining party,
“Is this a thing people care about? ‘
The members of Weezer are clearly very aware of this phenomenon and also very good sports, because even though Jones ‘ character had some pretty harsh things to say about the band (“they haven ‘t had a good album since ’96 ‘), they fully endorsed and loved it.
