As one might expect, on the last “Saturday Night Live” episode before the election, the TDS-riddled “comedy” show did its nasty best to burn President Trump to a crisp — even if it had to rely on questionable “facts” to do so.
Fake-news anchor Colin Jost “joked” that the president of the United States has “killed more people across the Midwest than Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy combined.”
Hilarious, right? Yeah, it got worse. Here’s Jost on “Weekend Update.”
“Unfortunately, Trump’s gaslighting isn’t enough to keep you warm, because multiple Trump supporters stranded at a freezing-cold rally in Nebraska were hospitalized from hypothermia, I assume because Trump told them jackets don’t work.
“But don’t worry, the president isn’t trying to kill supporters, he’s actually succeeding at killing his supporters. According to a new study, around 30,000 COVID cases and 700 deaths have been tied directly to Trump rallies.
“That means he’s officially killed more people across the Midwest than Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy combined. Which is also kind of what Trump looks like.
“In the end, I guess Trump is right, he’s not a typical politician, because politicians don’t typically spend the last week of the election murdering their own voters.
This is what now passes for “humor” on the Left.

Remember in 2014 when then-President Barack Obama dismissed ISIS as a “jayvee team“? When he said of the Islamist terrorist group, “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”? The same “jayvee team” that went on to control most of Iraq and part of Syria, beheading American civilians — on video — along the way? Remember how SNL joked about that? Me, neither. Can you imagine the outcry if it would have? Me, too.
As reported by NewsBusters, Jost’s “jokes” were based on a “guesstimate” from Stanford economists that Trump rallies have caused over 30,000 COVID cases and led to more than 700 deaths. Fact? No. As Reuters explained, the guesstimate wasn’t based on science.
The research, led by B. Douglas Bernheim, chair of economics at Stanford University, analyzed data following 18 Trump rallies held between June 20 and Sept. 22, three of which were indoors. Bernheim said in an email the work relies on statistical methods to infer causation after an event has occurred.
Infectious disease experts have long suspected that the president’s rallies ahead of the Nov. 3 election might be so-called “superspreader events.” But so far, scientists have not been able to get a good read on their impact, in part because of a lack of robust contact tracing in many states.
Try to control your shock and amazement: As NewsBusters noted, Bernehiem donated to Barack Obama’s 2008 election campaign.
But, hey, SNL — all’s fair in hyper-partisan political bias, right? Not to be outdone, co-fake anchor Michael Che slammed rappers Lil Wayne and Ice Cube for endorsing Trump’s $500 billion Platinum Plan, in a schtick that fell flat on its pathetic face.
“Lil Wayne met with President Trump this week to discuss Trump’s FUBU Platinum Plan for the Black community — I don’t know what it’s actually called. (FUBU, which stands for “For Us, By Us,” is a hip hop apparel company.)
“Many are surprised by Lil’ Wayne’s endorsement of Trump, but keep in mind Lil Wayne puts cough syrup in his Sprite, so […] Look, it’s weird that I have to tell politicians this, but rappers are not Black Leaders. They’re just rappers.”
“Stop negotiating with them,” Che said.
On @nbcsnl Michael Che rips into rappers endorsing Trump. Rappers aren’t black leaders! (Unless Jay-Z endorsed Obama, that’s different.) You know who else is too lightweight to be a black leader? Michael Che. pic.twitter.com/meFDhjZtKL

Really, Michael? You mean the same way Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar are “just rappers”? You know, those rappers that Barack Obama couldn’t get enough of? Does that also apply to LeBron James, who fancies himself as an expert on all matters police-related, or is he “just a basketball player”? Please, dude, your hypocrisy is showing — bigly.
The bottom line.
While SNL’s “humor” is irrelevant to rational people who think for themselves, it serves as part of the Left’s larger effort to not only feed pablum to like-minded liberals but to also do its part in indoctrinating the young and impressionable among us. Sadly, it’s doing its job.
