Victoria Jackson didn’t perform in the “Saturday Night Live” 40th anniversary, but she debuted a new anti-Obama song on YouTube.
The conservative activist accompanies herself on ukulele as she contemplates Islamophobic conspiracy theories in the seemingly improvised song, “There’s a Muslim Living in the White House.”
“Why aren’t people shocked or something?” Jackson sings. “Why aren’t people up in arms? Does anyone read history or see black and white flags or hear alarms? The streets are filled with deaf and dumb as I squeak like a mouse. There’s a Muslim living in the White House.”
The six-minute song – a follow-up to “There’s a Communist Living in the White House” – includes quotes and sound bites from the president intended to back her assertion that Obama is actually Muslim.
“Only Brigitte Gabriel understands me, and of course, Sean Hannity, and Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer,” Jackson sings, naming anti-Islam commentators.
Jackson was not among the “SNL” veterans asked to participate in Sunday’s anniversary special, but she thanked producer Lorne Michaels for her time on the program and denied her political views kept her from participating.

‘His mommy should have told him she loved him a little bit more’: CNN analyst eviscerates Trump over ‘chosen one’ comments’
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," analyst Gloria Borger laid into President Donald Trump for his bizarre press conference anointing himself "the chosen one."
"'I am the chosen one,' and that comes after the president re-tweeted a conspiracy theorist radio host who said that he is like the second coming," said host Brianna Keilar. "So what do you make of all of this?"
"I think maybe his mommy should have told him she loved him a little bit more," said Borger. "I don't know. It is hard — it is hard to know what to make of this. Some people will say, as Trump says, 'Oh, I was only joking when I said all of that stuff.' But the truth of the matter is that he does this all of the time, and talks about how wonderful he is, and if you recall during his speech at the convention when he talked about the problems the country was facing he was saying 'I alone can fix it.'"
Trump promises vets he won’t use his campaign slogan — then blurts it out seconds later
While talking with veterans on Wednesday, President Donald Trump vowed that he would not politicize the event by reciting his 2020 campaign slogan -- and then did it anyway just seconds later.
While addressing the American Veterans National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky, the president made light of the fact that he was not supposed to be using his speech to promote his reelection campaign and was only there to talk about his administration's work on behalf of veterans.
"In all things, we are putting our country first," the president said. "We are saying, let’s say 'Make America great again,' but we are almost there, 'Make America great again.' We may have to switch it. You know what we’re going to switch it to? Huh? Yeah? That is right. I will not say it here, because this is not a campaign speech."
Eugene Robinson stunned by Trump’s rant: No ‘responsible’ world leader can trust a self-proclaimed ‘chosen one’
Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson on Wednesday reacted to President Donald Trump's assertion that he is "the chosen one."
Trump made the remarks while taking questions on the White House lawn on Wednesday. The president suggested that he is "the chosen one" to take on China because he was elected by the American people.
Robinson suggested that Trump had undermined his own negotiating position.
"You get to the point where he looks at the sky and says I'm the chosen one," Robinson said following Trump's remarks. "You get to that point and you cannot -- I don't see how any responsible leader could say this is a guy I could count on."
