Saturday Night Live aired a special edition of Weekend Update tonight, opening with a spoof of the cable morning show Fox & Friends.
The segment started with the hosts wryly dismissing the impact of Mitt Romney‘s “47 percent” video, before cutting to Jason Sudeikis
as Romney explaining his comment in full. Romney said that within that
47 percent, he’s not actually talking about senior citizens or veterans
or southern white people. “When I say ‘these people,’ I mean ‘black
The Fox hosts laughed off the comments, with one saying that if he
were black, he would consider Romney “king of the honkeys.” They played
another tape of Romney enjoying a “hamburger sandwich” at “the
McDonalds,” and grabbing someone else’s drink to wash away the awful
burger taste out of his mouth.
But lo and behold, there was yet another Romney video to show off. This time, Romney got caught on Cash Cab.
Romney laughs off 25 dollars as “a quarter” and laughingly refers to
California as “New Mexico.” But the Fox hosts found absolutely nothing
wrong with Romney’s comments, finding each of them to be equally
delightful, including a surprise video at the end of Romney singing in
the shower about how much poor people hate jobs.
The segment ended with a list of all the factual inaccuracies made on the show thus far. A long, seemingly unending list.
