“SNL” Takes Aim at Trump’s East Palestine Visit: A Roast for the Ages!

Saturday Night Live (SNL) was at it again on Saturday night, taking aim at President Donald Trump’s recent trip to East Palestine, Ohio. The show opened with a spoof of the President’s visit, which saw him address a crowd of supporters in the polluted city.

The cold open featured Colin Jost, who played the role of the President, ranting about his trip. “It was a great trip,” Jost said in the skit. “I was welcomed with open arms and open noses.” The show also mocked the President for taking a train to the city, despite the fact that the train was running late.

The skit then shifted to a parody of Trump’s speech in East Palestine, with Jost playing the role of the President. “I want to thank the people of East Palestine for having me here today,” Jost said. “It’s a beautiful city, despite the smell of industrial waste.”

The skit also featured a spoof of the President’s daughter Ivanka Trump, played by Kate McKinnon, who was seen trying to defend her father’s policies. The show also took aim at the President’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, played by Beck Bennett, who was seen trying to explain the President’s policies in a confusing manner.

The skit concluded with Jost’s Trump character saying, “The only thing I know for sure is that East Palestine is a great place to visit, and a terrible place to live.”

The skit was met with a mix of cheers and boos from the audience, but it was clear that the show had achieved its goal of mocking the President’s visit to East Palestine.

The skit was widely discussed on social media, with many users praising the show for its take on the President’s visit. The skit was also picked up by news outlets such as The New York Times, HuffPost, CNN, and Yahoo! Voices.

Overall, Saturday Night Live’s take on President Donald Trump’s visit to East Palestine was both humorous and thought-provoking. The skit was a reminder that while the President may be in power, it doesn’t mean he can’t be held accountable for his actions.
