Mitt Romney is considering an appearance on Saturday Night Live. Or as he said, "Sock it to me!"
On the second official episode of its new season, "Saturday Night Live" took a break from send-ups of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney to focus on some of the peripheral aspects of the campaign, including Ann Romney and undecided voters. On "Weekend Update," Mrs. Romney--played by newcomer Kate Mckinnon...
Jason Sudeikis gave what may be his swan song as Mitt Romney in the Cold Open of this week’s Saturday Night Live. Set at the Romney residence on election night, the GOP presidential candidate is seen drowning the pain of defeat in carton after carton of milk. STORY: 'SNL' Recap: Anne Hathaway Mock...
This clip from Saturday Night Live shows the post election scene at the Romney house. Mitt Romney is on the balcony drowning his sorrows away in milk as he gets multiple visitors. Some of Romney’s sons drop in to check on Mitt as well as Ann Romney and Karl Rove. The clip also makes mention of Donal...
In the first post-election episode of the season, "Saturday Night Live" bid farewell to Mitt Romney in a Cold Open sketch that imagined what he must have done after conceding to President Obama (hint: it involves a LOT of milk). Watch the sketch above to see Ann Romney (Kate Mckinnon), Karl Rove (Bo...
Glad to see Obama get four more years. The only thing that upsets me about Mitt Romney losing is that Jason Sudeikis won't play the President on Saturday Night Live.
I'm voting for Ross Perot and James Stockdale...or maybe Bob Dole & Jack Kemp. lol jkz. Remember back in the 90's when Saturday Night Live was actually constantly funny and they always had Darrell Hammond impersonate Bill Clinton, Norm Macdonald as Bob Dole, and Cheri Oteri as Ross Perot and they would square every week on SNL? lol. Norm Macdonald's Bob Dole was so hilarious. Jason Sudeikis did a very good on impersonating Mitt Romney, but it has nothing on Norm Macdonald's Bob Dole or Darrell Hammond's Bill Clinton. Dana Carvey's impersonation of the 1st Bush president was awesome too.
With two days until the election, both sides are "confident" of victory. Since partisan predictions are a dime a dozen, I'd like to submit my far-fetched forecast as an homage to Bill Swerski's Superfans - a recurring 1990's Saturday Night Live skit where Da' Bulls and Da' Bears were regularly picked by mustached Chicago sports fans to win their games by insane margins of victory. Here goes: Mitt Romney will win 107% of the popular vote, all 57 states, and 999 electoral votes (after all votes in parallel dimensions are counted). Da' GOP will extend their House majority to 435 to Negative-7, and pick up all 100 Senate seats (even though only 1/3 of them are open). President Romney will then name Mike Ditka as his Secretary of State. Enjoy Tuesday!!
"Because if there's anything that people should know about Mitt Romney at this point, is that nothing I've said in the past should be any indication of my positions in the future." - Mitt Romney portrayed by Jason Sudekis on tonight's Saturday Night Live. Perfect! -M
Tagg Romney Apologizes to Obama Last week the oldest of Mitt Romney's five sons, Tagg, 42, raised eyebrows when he explained to a radio interviewer what it was like to watch President Obama assail his dad's truthfulness. Tagg said the comments made him want to "jump out of my seat and … rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him." He made the comments to North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye. "But you know you can't do that because, well, first, because there's a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because this is the nature of the process," Tagg said. "They're going to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he's not. We signed up for it. We've gotta kinda sit there and take our punches and then send them right back the other way." The comments raised eyebrows and were satirized on Saturday Night Live. Sources tell ABC News that on stage after the debate last night, Tagg apologized to the president for the remark, a Mea Culpa the president quickly accepte ...
How I wish Phil Hartman were still around to be Mitt Romney on Saturday Night Live.
Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers offered some advice to President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney in advance of Monday night's third and final presidential debate. Seeing as the debate will take place in Boca Raton, Fl., where the motto is Say it in my good ear, Meyers advises that the ...
Saturday Night Live took on the second presidential debate this week, with Jay Pharoah playing President Obama and Jason Sudeikis as Mitt Romney. Newcomer Aidy Bryant appeared as moderator Candy Crowley.
As was the case with the first two debates of the 2012 presidential race, last week's town hall at Hofstra University in Hempstead, Long Island, was spoofed on "Saturday Night Live." And the debate--the second between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney--was portrayed as a contentious affair in f...
(howling) Oh dear. I'm watching the Saturday Night Live parody of the Presidential Debate and Katja comes in the room. She looks up at Jason Sudeikis playing Mitt Romney and goes, "Daddy!"
Both sides of the political spectrum must acknowledge a significant downside to Obama winning re-election -- We would have to put up with 4 more years of Jay Pharoah's terrible impersonation on Saturday Night Live (and would miss 4 years of Jason Sudeikis' hilarious impersonation of Mitt Romney).
Why can Mitt Romney do a great job for 10 minutes poking fun at Obama at the Al Smith Dinner. But Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Kimble, Jay Leno, David Letterman say there's nothing funny about the president and they can't find jokes to say about him?
The "Sesame Street "character refused to comment on Mitt Romney's vow to pull the plug on PBS funding when he joined Seth Meyers for Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" Saturday.
I was watching Bill O'Reilly yesterday, and he had a clip of an interview with Dennis Miller of Saturday Night Live fame. Dennis is going on the road with Mitt Romney to introduce him to audiences. He asked Dennis if he was going to be a comedian in his introduction. He said he might make a quip or two. One might be that before coming to introduce Mr. Romney, that he had a cup of coffee handed to him by a person backstage. He said it was old, cold, and nasty. The person responded that "that's just Joe being Joe". For you that don't get it, it is a joke poking fun at Joe Biden's nasty attitude during this recent Vice Presidential debate and not so much about "a cup of Joe" (coffee).
Remember the Saturday Night Live skit where Mike Myers used to get "Verklimpt" and say " things like "Cream cheese- chives or pineapple? talk amongst yourselves?" Those of you who still have enough stomach left to continue following the Presidential Campaign: " Mitt Romney: Bipartisan or Bipolar?" Talk among yourselves
The same night that Saturday Night Live ridiculed MSNBC for its dramatic reaction to President Obama's debate performance, the comedy show interviewed "Big Bird" over Mitt Romney's assertion that he would cut funding to PBS if elected president. “I like PBS, I love Big Bird...But I’m not going...
Big Bird stayed up seven hours past his bedtime last night to put in an appearance on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update following Mitt Romney's
Last week's presidential debate provided plenty of fodder for "Saturday Night Live," which devoted two sketches and the bulk of its "Weekend Update" segment to skewering the event. On the cold-open, former cast member Chris Parnell returned to "SNL" to play moderator Jim Lehrer, who was steamrolled by Mitt Romney despite the Republican nominee's forewarning. "Jim, when it comes to jobs President Obama prefers what I call a trickle-down government solution," Romney, played by Jason Sudeikis, said. "Now my plan is different. It involves 41 basic elements, six abrupt reversals of position and three outright lies."
Saturday Night Live skewered MSNBC’s reaction to President Barack Obama‘s disappointing debate performance with skit full of MSNBC’s biggest names: Rachel Maddow, Al Sharpton, Chris Matthews — and TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp. Deconstructing the debate disaster — or as Maddow put it, “the worst thing that ever happened anywhere” — Sharpton was ready with a litany of whacky excuses, starting with “altitude poisoning.” “See, Denver, Colorado is a mile high,” he said. “There’s no way to know for sure how many feet that is, but it could be upwards of a million. Obama’s from Hawaii which is a mile below the earth. So for him speaking in Colorado is is like being flung two miles into the air and then having to give a speech in outer space.” Chris Matthews, who said he’d “never been so disgusted in my life,” wondered why Obama had to let Mitt Romney talk at all. “He forgot the first rule of debating: always be interrupting,” Matthews said. “When I don’t have points to make ...
Seth Myers from Saturday Night Live quote. "You have to hand it to Obama. Mitt Romney really did !"
Leading into tomorrow’s presidential debate, journalists are busy setting expectations for the candidates. On Sunday’sGood Morning America, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos argued that Mitt Romney is under “huge, huge” pressure: “He is behind right now. He is behind nationally, he’s behind in all of the ...
Proving that comedians who portray Mitt Romney are perhaps more interesting than the candidate himself, Seth Meyers went on WNYC's "The Takeaway with John Hockenberry" to talk about the new season of "Saturday Night Live," and their conversation inevitably led to writing Romney jokes. "There's not m...
For those of you that enjoyed poking fun at Mitt Romney for suggesting that airplane windows ought to open, I post the following from the Huffington Post: "Mitt Romney gave the Internet -- and Rachel Maddow -- a chuckle Monday after post-fundraiser comments that appeared to show the candidate has a tenuous grasp on the physics of flight. But after Mitt Romney was quoted as saying that airplane windows "don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that," a campaign pool reporter says the candidate was joking. Ashley Parker, a New York Times reporter who filed on the comments, tells New York magazine that "it was clear from the context that he was not being serious." Never mind Romney's general track record with humor, as Tim Stanley writes in The Telegraph: "It's worth noting that Romney has a habit of throw away lines that suggest a barbed sense of humour that no one else quite gets." OK, so if he can't tell a joke, perhaps he ought have a limited future on Saturday Night Live.
Out *** and new Saturday Night Live cast member Kate Mckinnon took on the role of Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's wife, Ann. The real Ann Romney snapped at reporters last week, telling critics of her husband's presidential campaign,
Yesterday, I said I was tired of talking about the Presidential election, but after watching President Obama's speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations on television just now, I, myself, simply must speak. First of all, this is the man I want to be our President for the next four years. He spoke eloquently and intelligently to the world's leaders with authority and compassion. Mitt Romney might be able to speak with authority but never with anything remotely resembling compassion, a quality he has lacked ever since he fired the personnel of companies he bought in order to "earn" his multi-million-dollar bank account. Secondly, Obama's very high IQ and even higher education were revealed in his speech to the UN, two things that will be revealed in reverse for Romney minute by painful minute during the "great debate" on October 3rd. Watch it. See for yourself. (Mitt Romney has been and will remain the stuff that "Saturday Night Live" writers only dream about.) Barack Obama is one of the ...
Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update reports that Mitt Romney pays such a low tax rate because he claims 47% of Americans as dependents.
Saturday Night Live aired a Special Edition of Weekend Update tonight, opening with a spoof of the cable morning show Fox & Friends. The segment started with the hosts wryly dismissing the impact of Mitt Romney's 47 percent video, before cutting to Jason Sudeikis as Romney explaining his comment in ...
Rough day for idiotic morning show, Fox & Friends. Just hours after Gretchen Carlson and company were confused by a three-year old picture of Obama with a pirate, Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update Thursday tore into the show, mocking both its blatant Romney favoritism and its issues with...
Jimmy Fallon may have left Saturday Night Live, but that's not stopping him from impersonating political figures. The comedian rolled out his best Mitt Romney impersonation on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Tuesday, poking fun at the Republican presidential candidate's recent gaffe dismissing 47 perce...
Gloria Lemos With Obama holding a narrow but so far sturdy lead over Mitt Romney in polls, many incredulous Republicans sound like the Michael Dukakis character in a 1988 Saturday Night Live skit: “I can’t believe I’m losing to this guy.” The phenomenon is the result of three powerful factors, according to interviews with some two dozen political veterans from both parties.
Im really confused about something, a travel program aired a segment where the host participated in the killing of a fruit bat. They skinned the bat and gutted it and PBS morfed the image so not to offend viewers. Then another segment they travel to South America where the Native People are naked, so PBS morfed the images so that the viewer wouldn't be offended. Then PBS is going to air for 5 nights Homosexual films that have actors making out in the nude because thats okay? So I turned on Saturday Night Live and they spent the entire going from one skit to the next talking about George Bush, and how Mitt Romney gave everybody cancer. When Johnny Carson was on the air, he invited someone running for local public office and interviewed him and suddenly he was forced to blow a whole show bringing all of the other candidates under equal time. Christ can't anyone talk about the issues instead of bullsh**?
The 38th season of Saturday Night Live premiered this week with an opening segment featuring new cast member Jay Pharoah portraying President Barack Obama. “Obama” had been previously impersonated by white guy Fred Armisen.
Saturday Night Live's first show of the new season tonight. Good news- Jason Sudeikis stayed to do his Mitt Romney. Better news, they are finally using Jay Pharoah to play Obama instead of Fred Armisen.
One of the few things that American voters can look forward to during a very ugly campaign season: Jason Sudeikis will continue his Mitt Romney act on “Saturday Night Live.”
When is Saturday Night Live going to start in on Mitt Romney. He is more an *** than Sara Palin was.
What are we to think? Jason Sudeikis played Joe Biden on Saturday Night Live...now he is going to play Mitt Romney. Show we draw a conclusion from the fact that the same comedian plays both?
The New York Times reports that in the upcoming season of Saturday Night Live, President Obama will finally be played by an African-American actor, while Mitt Romney will be played by Jason Sudeikis. Obama has long been played by half-white, half-Asian actor Fred Armisen — a curious choice giv...
If you liked George W Bush, you should LOVE Mitt Romney - Honesty, Integrity, Witt and Wisdom ... and oh so Presidential. I hear Saturday Night Live is contributing to his campaign
Jason Sudeikis is returning to Saturday Night Live. Someone has to play Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney and Joe Biden might be chagrined to hear it, but Saturday Night Live fans will be thrilled to hear that Jason Sudeikis will be back when the show returns this Saturday.
Jason Sudeikis Returning to SNL: Jason Sudeikis is coming back to "Saturday Night Live." NBC has confirmed that...
Mitt Romney & Joe Biden will be chagrined to hear, but Im happy Jason Sudeikis will return to 'Saturday Night Live'
Jason Sudeikis is definitely returning to 'SNL': We'll have our Mitt Romney this season on 'Saturday Night Live.
The Main event being Mitt Romney's speech I was looking forward to here in Tampa, however as much as he touched about creating jobs and lowering taxes, I was somewhat dissapointed that he did not elaborate on the specifics of how he would re-appeal Obama's healthcare, did not elaborate on how he would get a better control over gun control, did not elaborate on the ever going immigration issue, and did not elaborate on some other key issues. I thought Marco Rubio was more about promoting himself, and as much as Clint Eastwood is and will always be my favvorite actor I felt what he did what that of something you would see on a "Saturday Night Live" skit/sketch. The last night night of the convention I was not impressed, so hopefully when Mr. Romney debates Mr. Obama one on one then maybe he might cover more issues, but Overall I enjoyed myself at the RNC Convention. Heading back home too Seattle on Saturday morning...
I love how those in the Republican Party who a few months back were supporting Gingrich and Perry... can now throw their full support behind Mitt Romney who Rick Perry called a "Vulture Capitalist" & Newt Gingrich called a "Bold Faced Liar". The Republican Primaries if they weren't dated would provide enough material for Saturday Night Live to last the next decade.
There's been a lot of speculation going around this morning that Mitt Romney is considering General David Petraeus as his Vice Presidential running mate.
Why McCain Chose Palin over Romney as VP "...that's not the way the decision was made," Schmidt said. "We never sat around having a discussion about Mitt Romney's taxes through the prism of a liability if he were chosen." Romney's wealth was considered a possible problem, he added. "Senator McCain got caught flatfooted answering a question about how many houses he owned," Schmidt recalled. "In fact, they were Cindy McCain's properties, but that distinction was lost in the political optics and we knew it would be a big liability that the presidential and the vice presidential candidates together owned more than a dozen homes. It was like something out of a 'Saturday Night Live' skit. I mean, come on."
I think what was missing from the opening ceremony of the Olympics and it could have happened toward the end of Paul McCartney's performance as it was too long was to have the Queen walk over to Mitt Romney and give him the finger. If you see this on Saturday Night Live, remember you heard it from me first.
seen that guy, Jason Sudeikis, do u rememba him as Mitt Romney in de Saturday Night Live u saw earlier?
So I just saw a post by "One Million Strong Against Mitt Romney" and decided to click on the link to see how many people were on it. 80,000 or so liked the page and around 100,000 were talking about it. My mind immediately went to wondering what the numbers for a page of the same nature on Obama. While there was, of course, such a page, I'm pleased to report that there were 61 liked the page and 16 are talking about it. There are more members on a page with it's title "One Million Strong For Barack Obama" and other pages like One Million Strong Against Rick Perry, Against The Republican Party. There are even more likes on a page to get Susan Lucci to host Saturday Night Live lmfao. While this could very easily be mostly advertising that page against Mitt Romney, I just want to say something political for one about really paying attention and getting into politics if you are going to take a stance on them. I looked up all the officials online for the last election I voted in (state officials, house, senato ...
Mitt Romney at the NAACP Conference. I had a terrible thought. Imagine the headlines from Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update. Mitt Romney goes to the NAACP Conference, says he's black. The response? Just black hearted as they booed him. Mitt just thought he was Daniel going into the lion's den. Sorry Mitt that's been done and Daniel just told the lion if he ate him, a speech was in order.
Well, here we are in yet another presidential campaign. As it stands now, it appears that the comedy team of Barack Obama and Joe Biden is far ahead in the Nielsen ratings based on television viewers. And rightly so, after all, Obama has dedicated himself to getting on as many comedy shows as possible during the past 3 1/2 years. He has worked hard honing his bits with David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, The View, Saturday Night Live and the State of the Union address, just to name a few. I'm impressed with Barack Obama. Some of the comedy routines he's performed are hilarious. I especially liked the "Cash For Clunkers" and the "Beer Summit" routines. He's got this new bit he's working on. You might have heard it. The one about "being so poor as kid he had to eat a dog". That one needs work, but give him time. I would suggest that he name the dog and claim it was the family pet. The viewers love that kind of stuff. He's a brilliant politician. Notice he didn't eat a spotted owl or a ...
Ok all FB friends, Eli Manning is hosting SNL( Saturday Night Live for those that don't watch)!! It will be great I'm sure!! Fred Armisen does a great OBama and Jason Sudakis slays Mitt Romney!! Way to go Eli!!
Thank goodness, Mitt Romney will not be appearing on Saturday Night Live this season, Lorne Michaels said today.
'Saturday Night Live's' Lorne Michaels on Mitt Romney as host and possible cast changes
Video on msnbc.com: Even if Mitt Romney turns down Lorne Michaels' offer to appear on Saturday Night Live, we'll still have this Last Word compilation of Mitt Romney campaign trail jokes, gaffes and singing.
Now that Mitt Romney's general election campaign is breathing air, will he soon be "live, from New York"? The Republican presidential candidate has been asked to host "Saturday Night Live," according to Maureen Dowd's New York Times column, published Saturday evening.
Saturday Night Live encapsulated and amplified Mitt Romney's weakest points for posterity, and it's as devastating as Tina Fey's Sarah Palin was in 2008.
Saturday Night Live is back from a nearly month-long hiatus, and what better way to remind us of what we were missing than to lead with a C-SPAN sketch!
