“You’re watching Fox News. Oh my God, look out behind you!”
During their opening segment, Saturday Night Live mocked Fox News coverage of the US military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT) policy. The bit featured impressions of Greta Van Susteren, Karl Rove, Oliver North, Robert Gibbs and a woman referred to only as Attractive Blonde Lady.
Asked for their views on DADT, Rove chimed in. “Don’t ask, don’t tell allows members of our military to be gay, but not too gay. So we get the Wills from Will & Grace, but not the Jacks.”
North agreed, “The Neil Patrick Harrises but not the Elton Johns.”
Next Van Susteren asked, “Is America under attack? Let’s go to our expert on the subject, Glenn Beck.”
Standing in front of a chalkboard, Beck replied, “You know I wanna tell you all a little story. There was a man… Oh God… I promised myself I wouldn’t cry. There was a man named George Washington and he’s dead. And all the gays in the world can’t bring him back to life.”
Gathering himself, he added, “There is no “I” in liberty.”
The best part of the segment was arguably North’s DADT warning.
“If we give gay men and gay women equal rights, pretty soon we’ll be giving all Americans equal rights, and then where will we be?”
RAWSTORY previously covered SNL’s spoof of Fox’s ‘end of an era’ election coverage. And SNL also created a movie trailer spoof predicting apocalypse in response to rumors of a Palin/Beck 2012 presidential ticket.
This latest video is from NBC’s Saturday Night Live, broadcast Feb. 6, 2010.
Conservative columnist blasts GOP as ‘partisan hacks for whom hypocrisy is second-nature’
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again ripped into The Squad, this time to undercut an emotional press conference in which Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) described the conditions her Palestinian relatives live under.
“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long,” the president tweeted. “Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”

Convicted Cardinal Pell’s fate hangs on appeal
An Australian court will rule on George Pell's appeal against child sex abuse charges Wednesday, when the convicted cardinal could walk free or begin a new round in his protracted legal fight.
Once the Vatican's third-ranking official, 78-year-old Pell was sentenced this year to six years in jail for sexually assaulting two 13-year-old choirboys at a Melbourne cathedral in the 1990s.
After more than two months of deliberations, a three-judge appeals panel will hand down their decision.
Pell is the most senior Catholic convicted of child sex abuse, making his case and Wednesday's ruling a touchstone moment for believers and victims groups around the world.
