On last night’s episode of the rarely funny, often “woke” sketch comedy show ‘Saturday Night Live’ comedian John Mulaney jokingly implied President Donald Trump be assassinated.
While we’ve become almost numb to vile “woke” comedians like Mulaney what was shocking was the audience reaction.
Many in the audience laughed and cheered at the thought that the President might be assassinated.
Mulaney started the whole despicable thing off by saying “It is a Leap Year, as I said. Leap Year began in 45 B.C. under Julius Caesar. This is true.”
“He started the Leap Year in order to correct the calendar and we still do it to this day,” he said to setup his so called “joke.”
“Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar, he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grabbed knives and they stabbed him to death.
“That would be an interesting thing if we brought that back now,” he said as the audience disgustingly roared with applause and laughter.
I asked my lawyer if I could make that joke and he said, let me call another lawyer and that lawyer said yes,” he said.
This is absolutely vile and beyond the pale.
When Obama was president a rodeo clown was forced out because he wore an Obama mask.
Now, in this era where the “resistance” has been normalized, so called comedians openly call for the assassination of the President of the United states, while the crowd laughs and cheers.
Vile and disgusting but entirely predictable.
Wonder if the media would be so happy with similar shenanigans if a Democrat were President and conservatives were calling for that president’s assassination?
Maybe John Mulaney and the producers of Saturday Night Live should get a visit from the Secret Service.
Anyone who openly threatens or instigates violence against the President of the United States deserves to be investigated and possibly even prosecuted.
