The good news (if such things ever come from Saturday Night Live) is that for the second weekend in a row, they took a couple of jabs at Democrats. Of course, they had to maintain their liberal credibility by hammering conservatives much harder in their “Weekend Update” segment.
Co-host Colin Jost pointed out the obvious:
“Sure, this was taken before Franken ran for public office, but it was also taken after he was a sophomore in high school,” Jost said. “It’s pretty hard to be like , ‘Oh Come on, he didn’t know better He was only 55.”
Referring to a picture of Al Franken groping a sleeping Leeann Tweeden, the host said:
“Senator Al Franken is being accused of sexual misconduct on a 2006 U.S.O. Tour by Leann Tweeden, who posted this photo of Franken apparently groping her breasts while she was asleep. Now, I know this photo looks bad, but remember it also is bad.”
