SNL does it again with cold open that skewers Donald Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin.

So far Trump has not thrown a tantrum on Twitter about this segment, even though Alec Baldwin gave him a warning ahead of time.
Actually as much as I like this opening, I enjoyed Kate McKinnon's parody of "Love Actually" even more. I swear that every week McKinnon proves herself to be the most talented cast member the show has to offer this season.

    To put it bluntly, there is something about this man that keeps driving him to prove, on an ever-increasing scale, that he can get away with breaking any rule that he chooses to break and to do it with an in-your-face belligerence that comes from deep down. And in the process, he whips himself into an extraordinary frenzy that his round-the-clock “tweets” are recording for the ages.

    Could it be that Donald Trump feels an uncontrollable urge to defile the things he touches? Why else does he do the sorts of horrible things that he routinely does: make fun of the handicapped, question the proven heroism of his own party’s 2008 presidential nominee, brag (both off the record and on) that conventional standards of decency are targets for him to defy?

    Questions about his mental condition have been raised and such concerns are valid. It is all very well to just blurt out whatever comes into your head, make outlandish claims unsupported by facts, then deny that you said those very things or just shrug it all away as the product of a “system” that is “rigged.” Trump did these sorts of things again and again in the 2016 campaign. And it might have been a calculated strategy, a strategy of ruthlessness and effrontery, concocted by a bold and daring cynic.

    But if Trump really came to believe that the things he said were all true, he might very well be delusional. And that opens up other possibilities.

    3. At times I wonder if he's pushing the envelope so hard over his outrageous cabinet picks because he is daring the Electoral College to disqualify him and choose someone who is "fit." In other words, he's doing it on purpose to try to get disqualified.

      It all goes back to him wanting to win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College because he really doesn't want to be president. ("It's a bigger job than I thought.")

      He's sabotaging himself.

      Or he is a truly stupid and horrendous person who wants to destroy the United States; it's people, it's resources, our Constitution and the government.

  3. Watch Kate on The Big Gay Sketch Show. Her character FitzWilliam is to die for. Check Amazon, Hulu, etc as the show is no longer on Cable. The whole show has actors you will recognize.

    I would like to say that this is funny but we have an idiot who literally holds the power to destroy us in his hands.

    We can only hope he is impeached and the stop gaps of letting an unqualified piece of shit like Trump are in place.

    This idiot reality tv show host is now going to be in charge of the greatest country with the most power on earth.He is Palin in male form.

    We never thought we would see it. We were so secure in the knowledge

    that most of America still had class and brains. We were left stunned.

    We did not realize just how much prejudice was still out there and how much President Obama was hated for being half black with a black wife.The assholes came out in droves and want to set women back to the fifties because life was easier when there were jobs so easy to obtain.

    Those days are gone but some asshole comes along to tell them he will get them a job and they fell for it. He blamed the illegals, he promised to make America great again. That should have been the first clue of a traitor and a liar.

    Running down America was his platform and the stupid right wing were fine with that.The Republican party is stuck with this ass and unfortunately so are we.

    Three Professors Question Trump’s Possible Mental Instability

    Trump has been known to exhibit signs of mental instability, including grandiosity, impulsivity, hypersensitivity to slights or criticism, and an apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality. Three professors of psychiatry, including one from Harvard Medical School, have written a letter to President Obama. These professors express “grave concern” about the mental stability of the Donald.

    It's time to face it.We have a President who has holds business interests above his Country, the same Country he was not willing to fight for with his bone spurs crap excuse.

    If that pansy was not rich his butt would have served. We have a nude model First Lady and all the whining so called religous nuts are fine with it.

    I'm calling you out Sarah Palin. Can you imqagine if Michelle Obama had nude photos out there for all to see! Why you would not shut up about it nor would your buddy Franklin Graham.

    Hypocrites. A bunch of phony's that will not give credit to a First Lady who actually lived in the White House which Melanoma is not willing to do.Barron is her excuse. Melanoma never wanted this job and will never take it on.

    Idiot never thought he would win and now he is stuck and so is she. Bitch can't even speak English! but lets kick all the illegals out if here. This is so beyond her pay grade all she will be is a fashion model we will be bombarded by photos of her in her latest gown.

    Uneducated. No First Lady has ever been a former nude model as her claim to fame.

    Whether she realizes it or not she represents America so she she better get off her ass and quit hiding in Trump Tower we expect more.

      I think she doesn't want to be seen with her husband because she knows he will be booed and Barron would hear it. So she locks herself up in Trump Tower high above everybody where she can't hear or see anybody. She probably imagined being First Lady would be like doing her fancing runway walking and everybody clapping and taking pictures. Sweetheart woke and knows she will be booed.

      • Decreased ability to exercise

      • Increase in sexual ability, desire, drive, or performance

      • Confusion

    Regarding bad mouthing Air Force One, does Trump want Boeing to go under or want to sheep us over (didn't want to say fuc_ us over) so he can give the contract to Russia since America is now buddies with Russia?


    Russia Says Its New Commercial Airliner Is as Good as Any Boeing or Airbus
    By David Grossman
    Jun 9, 2016

    The Russian government is getting into the business of commercial planes. The Russian United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), which is majority owned by the government, has just unveiled the MC-21 300, which it boasts will be a rival to the best planes coming out of commercial aerospace, like the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing 737Max.

    Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev praised the plane, which will complete certification in 2017, at a fancy reception in Siberia. He called the plane "cool," and urged that Russia become an elite player in aerospace.

    "I only want to say that I am absolutely certain that the airliner will be the pride of Russian civil aviation, and that our citizens and foreign people will take pleasure in flights on MC-21," he said. We'll see!
