Saturday Night Live is one of the most ridiculous shows on television.
It’s clear they have an obsession with bashing President Trump.
But how they labeled First Lady Melania Trump wasn’t just shocking, it was a bit of a head scratcher.
Amy Schumer hosted SNL this past Saturday with a mildly amusing cold opening where most of the cast appeared with their mothers to celebrate Mother’s Day.
What was funny was that many of the moms complained about the excessive Trump-hating sketches.
Even Schumer’s opening monologue was free of Trump.
It actually looked like they might leave him and his family alone for an entire episode.
But they didn’t.
Michael Che and Colin Jost are co-head writers who star in the Weekend Update segment, and they spare no expense with their criticism towards the Trump administration.
During last weekend’s sketch, Che bizarrely referred to Melania as a “sexy-ass Michael Jackson.”
“Saturday Night Live host Michael Che took aim at First Lady Melania Trump on this weekend’s episode of the long-running NBC show, describing President Donald Trump’s wife as “sexy-ass Michael Jackson.”
“First Lady Melania Trump — or as I’ve been calling her, sexy-ass Michael Jackson — launched a campaign to stop cyberbullying called ‘Be Best’—as in, it would ‘be best’ if you got a divorce,” Che said to some groans and delayed applause and laughs during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment.
Pop legend Michael Jackson, who died in 2009, was known for his extensive plastic surgery and was said to have suffered from a degenerative skin disease known as Vitiligo.
Elsewhere, Che and his co-host Colin Jost reluctantly admitted that President Trump had a good week following the release of three Americans imprisoned in North Korea.
“I mean sure, this has been a decent week for Donald Trump, the same way a decent date with R. Kelly is to go home dry,” Che said.
“Personally, I don’t like when Trump is this quiet. It’s like when I’m babysitting my nephew and he’s quiet for too long and I’m like, ‘Oh, no. He’s eating out of that litter box again.”
Che, 34, has repeatedly used the Weekend Update segment to rip Trump and members of his administration.
Last September, he branded Trump a “cheap cracker” for his reaction to emergency response efforts following the hurricane in Puerto Rico, while he also described Trump supporters as “window lickers” who are the “craziest people in the country.”
Che has previously acknowledged the show’s anti-Trump bias, admitting that he agreed with comments made by Trump that the show had become too “one-sided.”
Last month it was announced that Che and Jost will host the 2018 Emmy Awards ceremony, succeeding Late Show star Stephen Colbert in the process.”

Obviously it was meant to be a supposedly hilarious slight against Melania Trump, but it didn’t even make sense.
