Saturday Night Live hates President Trump so much that it’s become unwatchable.
The snooze-fest of a sketch comedy show has been relentless in their liberal bias since the 2016 presidential campaign.
But some former SNL cast members are fed up with it.
One would think that the SNL alumni would lean far-left by default, right?
While most of them do, there are a few who surprisingly don’t.
Comedian Dennis Miller is one of the more outspoken conservative SNL alumni and regularly appears on Fox News to express his political views.
And there are other former cast members who have begun calling out SNL for their tiresome and distastefully biased sketches.
Fox News reports:
“Actor and comedian Joe Piscopo is joining the growing group of “Saturday Night Live” alums who’ve spoken out against the show’s perceived liberal bias.
On Monday, Piscopo blasted porn star Stormy Daniels’ guest appearance on the late-night NBC show saying it was “over the line.”
Piscopo told Fox Business journalist Maria Bartiromo the decision to feature Daniels on SNL was in poor taste.
“I’m so loyal to ‘SNL,’” said the 66-year-old during an interview on “Mornings with Maria” Monday. “But Stormy Daniels on ‘SNL’? Lorne Michaels doesn’t even ask me to go on ‘SNL’.”
Piscopo starred in the late-night comedy show between 1980 and 1984, where he was famous for his impression of Frank Sinatra.
“It was such a great, organized sketch,” he said of the controversial skit. “But don’t put Stormy Daniels in there — what do I tell my kids?”
Joe Piscopo asks, “What will I tell my children?”
You tell them Trump is a compulsive adulterer who pays off porn stars w $ from dubious sources. What else?

“The reason I voted for Trump is because he said two words I’ve never heard a politician utter in my life,” he explained at the time. “Two words: ‘Inner city.’ I’m a spokesman for the Boys and Girls Club in New Jersey.
“I’ve walked the inner city 25 years. My mission in life has been at-risk children… I’m a blue-dog Democrat. So what am I? A moderate conservative? I don’t even know what I am. All I know is when it comes to jobs, I’m a union guy.”
Rob Schneider is another SNL veteran who recently told the New York Daily News that Alec Baldwin’s Trump impersonation is ruining the show because the sketches are malicious.
Schneider pointed out that former SNL star Daryl Hammond’s impressions had worked so well because there was still a semblance of respect paid towards the person being impersonated.
Baldwin’s impression of Trump doesn’t come close to that.
You might also remember former SNL cast member Victoria Jackson from the late 80’s and early 90’s cast as well.
She thinks her conservative views got her kicked off the show.
Fox News reported:
“In 2015, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Victoria Jackson, a six-year veteran of SNL, took to social media to publicly wonder if her opposition to gay marriage caused the 73-year-old to treat her differently than other cast members.
Jackson was described as “a Christian conservative, a Tea Party favorite and an extremely vocal critic of President Barack Obama.”
“So, it’s still a mystery,” said Jackson, 58. “… Was I blacklisted for disagreeing with the president/media’s ideology? Was it because I am a Christian? Is it because I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage and publicly spoke out against homosexual themes in primetime TV shows? Is Lorne [Michaels] ashamed of me?”
At least some of the SNL alumnus are starting to realize just how over the top the show’s anti-Trump bias has become.
