  • Love it when SNL starts touching nerves. In this skit, they did it with a chainsaw. 😆

    • @TX-606 You watched it you dope. So did everyone else in the comments

    • @Craig Narramoore no. That argument only works for old SNL when it was run by normal democrats. This is clearly political hatred for one side

    • @Violet G I get that trump lost yes I understand that. But I hate to break it to you but I'm not the one who's been brainwashed

    • @steve briValid only because Trump made you believe he actually won because he can’t accept defeat. He knows exactly how to manipulate the vulnerable, I’ll give him that. Someone like that does not belong in politics..maybe in North Korea but not in the USA.

    • @steve bri Of course..the “patriot” excuse. Go ahead..be brainwashed by QAnon and all of those debunked conspirators..people like you eventually come to their senses..hope it’s not too late for you..Good luck!👍🏻

  • Whoever wrote this skit needs a raise. They just made both parties laugh together with the same joke

    • @blmonkey Definately not the point they were making. Plus, that goes both ways. Conservatives only believe in "my body, my choice" when it comes to vaccines. But either way, there's a huge difference between getting a vaccine to protect yourself and others, and allowing a woman to choose what she does with her body. One affects not only you, but others as well. The other has nothing to do with anyone but that person. Yet for some reason, everyone seems to think a woman getting an abortion affects them. And there are many reasons for an abortion, not just "mistakes after being drunk at the club" but by you making that statement alone, it tells me all I need to know. And I highly doubt that this comment will actually register- considering you typically can't force common sense, compassion, or awareness on people. However, I thought I'd still leave my two cents. And honestly, this is less about vaccines to me. While I do believe it's not in people's best interest to not get a vaccine, I'd never tell someone what to do with their body. Apparently some people think that suddenly doesn't apply when women are faced with a life altering decision and have to choose what to do.

    • @BigSchmill Can you give me an example of any skit where they make fun of liberals?.... I genuinely want to know

    • @BigSchmill bro every day sleepy dumbass Biden gives them ammo for skits and they never take it. They don’t need to be so politicalz

    • @Harrambou fair enough bro. I kinda agree..

    • As a republican I can vouch for this statement.

  • Sometimes SNL still does surprise. This is probably the freshest bit of satire I've seen from SNL in a long time.

    • @Michael Allred you missed the entire point of the skit

    • @shipshap that one was actually funny, agreed

    • @Michael Allred true that!

    • Republicans can laugh at ourselves. Liberals can’t

    • Fresh? Um, no. Very, very stale

  • This was one of their most thought provoking skits in a long time. Love how they showed both liberals and republicans dislike certain things when it goes against their agenda/beliefs but love it when it fits their narratives .

    • It's not "liberals and Republicans." It hasn't been for a while. It's "leftists, Republicans, and conservatives," and only the leftists still look like their stereotypes, so it's extra confusing for outsiders.

    • @Abisaurusrexx I'm a libertarian, but thanks for proving my point

    • @My Life Is A Lie spotted another Republican

    • This is true, but there’s always a right and wrong to all situations so saying that one thing is allowed from a certain aspect whilst another isn’t is based upon either the ethics of the party someone supports or personal morals.

    • @Lawrence So you’re basically saying that there shouldn’t be a choice allowed for someone to decipher whether or not they want to inject a man-made substance into themself because social aspects? It’s the government’s job to protect our freedom to make such decisions, it’s why we live the way that we do in this country, so if you agree with vaccine mandates go to China to enjoy their unnatural“social credit system” and whilst we enjoy being free human being in America.

  • The most bipartisan political skit ever. Super clever.

    • @jepto ungrit idk if it was purposeful, but that sounded REALLY racist

    • @MrVideoVero What republic is for big government?

    • Keep telling yourself that goofus

    • @Auto Robot If they did this with democrats as well, then it would be bipartisan

    • @MrVideoVero And democrats stand for their values? They flip-flop the same exact way.

  • This was by far the most intelligent skit of the year for SNL. It really put things into perspective.

  • My favorite types of sketches are when Kenan is chill and making everyone else uncomfortable, funniest man

  • Wow an SNL sketch that’s clever and where both sides can laugh at and enjoy! Kudos, they need more of this.

  • Thought this was just going to be cheap shots, it was actually really cleverly done, well done SNL!

    • @Maggie Norris Depends on the Irish person. Not all Irish people are White. Just like not all Americans are White. Either way 4 to 7 years of indentured servitude(which was also ran by White Americans) compared to hundreds of years of chattel slavery isn't much of a comparison.

    • @The Odd One 111 Do you consider the Irish to be white?

    • Eh, they deserve to be mocked.

    • @Skalla Grimm Democrats will eat their own real quick it's only the Republican party and it's sheep that will protect a representative till the end and doesn't care what they do while in office THATS A FACT. You ain't gonna see people storming the captiol and trying to attack representatives on the Democrat side

    • Every reply above mine fails to see the flaws in the party they have faith in but you know sheep are sheep and the blind lead the liberal.

  • I see this as a perfect representation of judging books by their cover. In the world of politics, people have a lot of layers. And you can’t judge their political beliefs based on what they say about a particular topic. Even Liz Cheney, who is a Republican don’t care what the Caucus of her state or Trumpicans say, will stand on the principles of morals and be labeled something she isn’t, liberal.

    • @ian mcafee white male and racist were basically the same word in 2016-2017, I'm not surprised at all by now

    • @Ian Glenn NY congressman Jamaal Bowman (D) went on CNN and essentially called him a racist... "AS A WHITE MAN he doesnt care about black people he doesnt care about latinos he doesnt care about women" forgive me, he didnt actually call him a racist but what are we supposed to take from that "AS A WHITE MAN he doesn't care" garbage? 11 seconds into this clip. cs-tv.org/tv/video-rTvFOYm_Mg8.html

    • @Mason Christian Jamaal Bowman (D), a New York Congressman said "AS A WHITE MAN he doesnt care about blacks, latinos, and women" on CNN... he didnt actually use the word racist but what are we supposed to take away from that "AS A WHITE MAN he doesn't care" garbage? 11 seconds into this clip it starts. cs-tv.org/tv/video-rTvFOYm_Mg8.html

    • @ian mcafee who said he was racist

    • @ian mcafee people say he's taking the side of his investment interests over the country, nicknamed him Maserati Manchin, no one calls that guy racist

  • That was actually a very powerful sketch. Funny, yes, but it cuts to the core and is a great reminder of something too many people forget: NUANCE. 👍

  • I am not often a fan of SNL, but this is worth it's weight in gold.

  • Really clever skit! On the surface, I think it's about not jumping to conclusions about a few narrowly framed "facts" about someone. Because the "why" is actually more important. But on a deeper level, I think it also illustrates how narrow framing of issues actually promotes bad faith "both sides" arguments which are destroying our ability to see objective truth.

    • @Chris And if the writer wasn’t a “both sides” person, most of the commenters I see commending this sketch are.

    • yes!!! couldnt agree more

    • Maybe I’m wrong, but I think this sketch is literally just intended to promote “both sides” arguments. The writer wasn’t trying to make some deeper point. It’s just a bad sketch.

    • Thank god somebody actually understood the sketch. It's blowing my mind how people in the comments think this sketch is making fun of non-Republicans literally at all.

    • @jameseglavin4 Yep - this is also why “both sides” and the media’s efforts to present “two sides” is so dangerous. It’s like if one side is anti-lead in pipes for communities the other side is pro-lead. It’s insane. Sometimes there aren’t two equivalent sides. Sometimes there is simply right or wrong and presenting the “other side” is stacking the deck unfairly for what is inherently wrong. Ugh. I’m depressed now - the media keeps doing this.

  • “I grew up in Ohio so I been playing this game my whole life.” More tangible than I want it to be.

  • "You still don't get it" is the best line. This episode shows that we are all the same and all hypocritical.

    • Beautifully done

    • Yes... his comment "you still don't get it" is the epiphany. After showing us repeatedly that both sides are hypocritical, its sad to see that the contestants are still trying to play the stupid game after this truth was revealed to them over and over.

    • Yeah it shows how similar we are and that we are still supporting some of the same ideas even if it’s different versions.

  • Honestly this was quite funny SnL was slacking hard lately, respect

  • "We will see you on MSNBC in about a week!" Gets me every time.

    • I'm waiting for MSNBC to tell us how much they paid Nick Sandmann

  • The overwhelmingly positive comments make me think I’m in an alternate time line when SNL is or was on point, insightful and funny. Great sketch, bravo.

    • I mean, they were with this sketch. Hopefully the trend continues.

  • This was awesome. I wish all political humor was like this!

  • This skit has me in tears laughing

  • Brilliant and hilarious. I had to watch this several times.

  • Props to SNL on this. As someone of the ever growing party of exhausted, this was an unexpected skit of refreshing perspective. 👍

    • Was funny seeing Democrats use a black person for comedy

    • THat's funny. party of exhaustion. XD Felt. I'm liberal but fuck dems. they think if they hide behind BLM and LGMTQ movements that they continue to do the same elitist shit that reps do. Politicians trash. We need an actual party of the exhausted working class fam

  • Kenan is just so good at playing the game show host role, his delivery is always perfect.

    • @Michael C Worthless fkn opinion we all didn’t need to hear.

    • @Kristen D. He cant get a movie job and so he's stuck at SNL.

    • @Michael C he's 'crap' yet has has had a steady job for years. Calm down, Beavis.

    • @Jay Wimsatt lol, Im from Europe actually, don't care much for politics. USA makes too much of an issue out of politics and nothing gets done. It's a joke.

    • I miss Bill Hader, definitely the best SNL game show host. But Kenan does well in his absence.

  • This episode has some of the BEST political sketches SNL has ever had. Incredible.

  • As a moderate independent this sketch rocks! Always having people label me as the opposing party whenever I share a viewpoint they disagree with. Stereotyping people into political parties is a big thing. Be nice if someday this joke of a two party system finally dies.

    • Two party system can stay (I don't think people are smart enough to think outside the box and break the status quo). It's the politicians that need a revamp.

    • @Dr. Braxy Gilkey Cruises the correct term is “pragmatic “.

    • @Dr. Braxy Gilkey Cruises Actually to be more specific, the majority of black americans (over a certain age) are socially liberal and then from a religious perspective more conservative. But younger black americans are far more progressive across the board.

    • @ladymondegreen Everyone here on this thread rocks! #IHeartCentrists

    • Same! I’ve been misunderstood by both sides just trying to be reasonable. Turns out there are many people who aren’t interested in listening - they just want to fight and fit people into their own perceptions.

  • This was one of SNL's most bipartisan and intelligent sketches in recent memory. The fact that most of the clues were unhelpful really means that most of us are the same, regardless of our politics. This idea is furthered by the incorrect assumptions made by the contestants.

    • This sketch is brilliant because the butt of the joke _is_ the audience. Every time SNL comes out with a sketch that vaguely touches on politics, everyone in the comments is trying to decipher the political meaning behind it. The real meaning of this sketch is that it's a fool's errand to try to figure out the hidden message in everything presented to you.

    • @Souledex Really rich to say one side is completely unprincipled one second and then say people need to stop being spoon fed information by their team. I side with conservatives on most issues. I didn't ignore left leaning viewpoints, I examined their arguments, understand how they came to their conclusions, but disagree on either results or principles of the situation. I disagree with them, but I actually research their points instead of trusting the interpretation of what their points are by someone that already disagrees. I don't think many of them are bad people and I certainly don't think they're unprincipled. Not saying every republican is saintly, there's awful people on both sides, but there's awful people everywhere. I implore you to follow your own advice.

    • @Jacob Schiller every one of them was accurately describing a widespread held belief. You just don’t like it, if you don’t want people believing it you should do something about it.

    • @Jeremiah Fink No. The contestants were wrong on every stereotype.

    • bro this is not bipartisan. They are making fun of republicans stop being so delusional

  • This is great cause it’s like a middle finger to both sides about how ridiculous and confused they’ve gotten.

    • @Howard Redder I believe in the system i have in mind, i know it is the only way for our species to have unity. Not only to quell current strife but to ensure a future. One not predicated on how rich you are, the ladder of which you speak is not visible to me. I look around and i see many middle aged or older people working at, "teenager jobs". By your logic they are incentived every day by the artificial scarcity that you set on the people. In the past, before monetary systems, we all as a community grew food together built each others houses. Thousands of years before that our species ancestors were also helping each other hunt or tending to the sick. Feeding them even though they werent able to contribute in the hunt or berry picking, (i.e. work). Our roads, our hospitals, our schools. They are all tax funded, our collective input to governance. Governance is a principle and does not need an individual or council to enact itself. It is order inherently, such tasks are best predicated to electronic funds which, issue for issue the tax payers may all vote to decide how to allocate that money. In doing this the benefit of one person would also be the benefit of another. We are bound to pick universal heathcare, college, housing. These are popular topics and its clear that there are more people with conscious and a heart than their are corrupt. What do the corrupt seek? Positions of power. What is my guess in it all, well to remove the position of which they would try to claim. Socialism says nothing about government being handled by actually people. Money is already moving to electronic currency, money in itself is a representation. It doesnt have to be a physical object. Furthermore if we dont put money into science we will fail at life in general, in any survival situation we'd be unprepared and our civilization will be wasted within a few generations. All because we refuse to unify, to think of each other as equal, to know that each of us are mortal or feel pain. That we each have a dream. It is just my wish for there to be more organization and less self centered chaos. But maybe thats just me. Also i have gender dysphoria, my insurance does not even cover my medicine let alone my surgeries. Which are necessary, but because everything is privatized, they can choose what is and isnt necessary. So to recap, your system doesnt work in the ways you promise for me. Im not able to save effectively for college, im not able to get life saving medical care, im not able to move past minimum wage no matter how hard i work. And ive been working 40+ hours for 8 years, in grueling construction, to fast food, to a receptionist. Back to fast food. All minimum wage, because im "young". So because someone is young, and once again jobs are privatized, employers can decide that you should starve to death because you look to young to do a simple job they wont even hire you for over prejudice. Ive always been poor. So excuse my perspective on things. I know suffering and one day ill make sure no one has to suffer. I want to be a geneticist, and if i can find the genes responsible for the evil in people i can find a cure. My system or my path in life are not limited to those around me or those who came before me. I accept no limits. My dreams will come true i believe in myself and i believe in humanity and good will. Thats why i could never make society pieces of paper over someone's life. You already chop down plant cells and ink it, now you want control over people if they dont have it. Its not really capitalism, its still feudalism.

    • @Alice's lab You certainly bring up great topics. As you know, none of the systems are best. They all have their pros and cons. Capitalism in its purest form, allows for people to move between classes of people. It allows for the best to come to this country and move society forward as they are incentivized to do so. It also take someone from wealthy class and bring them down to middle. Unfortunately, Cronyism has formed over the last 40 to 50 years and it will be our downfall as a country. Socialism, in its purest definition is not a bad thing, but in reality it’s run by the government for the people. And governments historically are very inefficient at doing things. Look at Canada. Their medical system is great but if you need surgery you might come to the US to get it done because the inefficient system. But if it’s for expensive medical costs, you are not going bankrupt in Canada. To compare, in the US, if you are low income you will get your medicine for free if it’s medically necessary. For instance, here in the US, I was unemployed and had no medical insurance. I am also a type 1 diabetic. My insulin bottles are about 125 dollars a bottle and I go through about 8 bottles every 3 months. The insulin manufacturer sent me out a 3 month supply no cost to me. Just needed my doctor to fill out a form. Also how many people are trying to sneak in countries that have socialism. While it’s true that all countries have issues with unauthorized people present in their countries, people are dying to get here to the US. I look forward to your cordial response!

    • @Eli buster im just sorry about letting my emotions control my dialogue choice, i dont feel sorry as in towards you. Ok so in your mind i can just get a job in a lab? I have to have a degree, which you wont allow me to have under your system and im not able to save for it either. There is no ladder for me because im poor. Thats what you dont get, and that makes you fake as fuck as far as your lies about this system working. You obviously have been born into wealth or worse yet you did work your way through the bullshit yet you want everyone else to go through that bullshit even though you know its a less effective system that degrades the quality of life and consumes your time in meticulous nonsense. You cant have it both ways, these middle aged people working with me are not rare its very common. You cant claim your system works and there is a ladder and then when anyone fails to see this ladder you blame the peasants themselves for, "not working hard enough." Ironically given youre a rich boomer with your view, you actually do infinitely less work, you have less empathy, less mental acuity and sharpness, and it effects the way you come across to people. Which is callous and bullheaded. The people i work with are hard workers and unlike you i dont look down on them because i understand that to be poor is to be trapped in one's circumstance. But hey maybe you never been in our position, never been on the street because your parents kicked you out instead of giving you an inheritance. You aint about this life, you are about yourself. At least have the decency to admit you ideals come from self centered concepts.

    • @Alice's lab um…get a better job then. The reason you have older people there is complacency and laziness how do you not get these concepts and don’t apologize if you’re not sorry that’s fake af

    • @Eli buster ok sorry i got mad because thats bullshit. I had to use financial aid and grant money to go to college and it only got me through a year. Now ive been working fast food working over 40 hrs a week 6 days a week. I dont care about how much money i make but its not my profession. Btw this teenager job has zero teenagers everyone is older than me. So your system doesnt work because there is no ladder as much as you lie about one. I would love to be a geneticist and to be doing that, your system is the one that has wasted my whole youth whereas i could have been helping people. But no we have a monkey level system of everyone fends for themselves and is deeply encouraged to step on and exploit other people to do it. Instead of encouraging me to help other people, its always, "no basing everything off of helping each other has never worked." Despite thousands of years that our species used that very concept to survive. Its so pig headish and elitist and you dont care who it effects because in your mind you, 'sound right".

  • The Dave Chappelle joke is hilarious: "Starting when?"

  • This needs to be a recurring skit. It hits all the buttons.

  • MORE of this, many more sketches where they give the contestants whiplash and overturn assumptions that people on both sides of the spectrum make. With an eye toward outing hypocrisy. I love it.

  • Honestly, I loved this sketch- this really was funny and clever satire

  • This should be a recurring skit. There's so many places they could go with this. 😂

    • @Your Wrong I don’t understand what that means?

    • @My Name Is Row I understood the catch. My point is that they always like to wrap these sketches up into a nice bow, the other way

    • Man this is moronic fr

    • @L eh, it’s both sides saying that about each other, news channels telling their followers what they should and shouldn’t believe, Senators and House Members telling the people of their groups what they should and shouldn’t believe, even the president was dividing people into groups with the things he told them to believe, it’s just how it’s always been, it’s just way worse now because the lies spread faster than the truth through social media.

    • People keep saying the right is, “delusional”, “extremist”, “terrorist”, “insane”. Lmao just stop, you are immature and buying in to the dehumanization fed to you by popular media and power figures who want nothing more than to sow division in order to galvanize support for their own popularity. Enough is enough.

  • Nailed it with this comedy sketch! 😂😃😅

  • I love when Kenan plays a game show host! Also love how this skit shows how Gray and not Black & White life is.

  • This was awesome loved how it pointed out flaws on both sides and it was hilarious Keenan never disappoints

    • @Chainsaw TV It doesn't point out anything about the democrat party genuinely tell me anything that makes this skit anti-democrat? Wtf

    • @Gamers Unite It does, it points out how ridiculous both sides are, I’m not a Republican or Democrat I can’t stand either. I think you’re just sensitive to jokes about your party.

    • It didn't point out flaws on "both sides" What the fuck did you just watch? It's obviously left wing biased

  • This is the first time I've laughed at SNL in a while. Fantastic skit.

  • Keenan’s comedic timing and hilarious faces been bringing so much laughter to me since the 90’s. Best “tv show” host ever!

    • @4N OBJ3CT That’s the facial expression tied to the content of what he’s saying . You can’t be this ignorant.

    • @Metalbass10000 Jimmy Fallon!😜😉

    • He's soo good!

    • I've NEVER understood his comedic genius. Lol

    • @S. Rowe I agree and don't understand how he makes his living as a professional comedian.

  • SNL has got their comedic MOJO back man! 🤣🤣🤣 Also if you haven't seen Shang-Chi, yet you should 😤😤😤

  • This skit was very well done! In order to laugh at others, you first need to learn to laugh at yourself.

  • “I’m from Manhattan.” “New York City or Kansas?” As someone who went to college in Manhattan, KS, you still have pretty decent chances of them being liberal.

    • Are you sure you went to KState and not KU? Manhattan might have a blue population of 2

  • Thank you SNL please continue with skits that make fun of all of us not just one group!👍🏽🇺🇸

  • Kenan's reactions are everything 😂😂

  • Great writing!!! Love it SNL!!! 👍🤣

  • This has the same energy as “Black Jeopardy with a Trump supporter”. I love it.

    • @Souledex Critical Race Theory: an Introduction, Third Edition is what I consider to be the CRT textbook (though I may have actually read second edition). Any quotas hurt the poor more than the rich, because the system was already biased towards the rich. Meaningful reform focused on addressing poverty (which helps poor white and Black people) is what I want, but most laws that overtly address race do disadvantage poor white people because they are not designed to control for class as well as race. I am hopeful that this is a growing pain. The “age of information” has given more people a voice than ever before in history; it was inevitable that there would be some conflict at first. If we can get past the initial vitriol, we will genuinely be in position to make positive change that previously would have been impossible (and yes, education is a key part of that, but it needs to be focused on understanding people, including/especially those who are wrong, as much as facts).

    • @ThrawnCaedus L also no affirmative action is basically the only conceivable policy that harms poor white people, who it barely harms it actually harms Asians who overachieve more per capita and are limited by it. The vast vast majority of programs target poverty directly which tends to help black people more because more are impoverished. And there’s no such thing as a CRT textbook.

    • @ThrawnCaedus L true. It’s not even remotely the reason we have this much polarization. 1. No more Soviets 2. Computers can make maps now. 3. 20 years of systematic destruction of the concept of truth The age of information is incompatible with an undereducated weak democracy.

    • @Souledex false, they have the same “everyone is against me” mindset, but differ on who they are paranoid about. The lack of understanding that similarity is the reason that we have so much polarization. Yes, Black people are hurting, but so are poor white people, and most of the policies meant to help Black people do it at the expense of poor white people (the actual CRT textbook is rather critical of how affirmative action has been implemented). Poverty matters comparably to race.

    • They agree on niche concepts or conspiracy theories or questions worded to obfuscate anything they stand for but on nothing that affects people's lives

  • Good skit. SNL proves once again they can be funny and relevant once every 10 years

  • We have just witnessed the birth of a classic. Well done to everyone involved!

    • @Sir Switch Crookington Sadly the world has gotten more political as well (but not SNL despite what many would say).

    • @Christian Finkbeiner Who told you that conservatives were not backing him before this happened? Just curious... If it's the media the best advice I can give you is to not to listen to the gossip

    • @Christian Finkbeiner That's right because anyone who actually watched and heard what he had to say understood that he was paying respect to everyone he was talking about

    • @steve bri Yeah, I have. And it didn't bother me. But far-right nuts are backing him now. They didn't before that special. It's not complicated.

    • @Christian Finkbeiner Have you actually watched the special? Or Just going off what other people have said

  • I continue to love Cecily Strong as a cast member. The Liz Cheney section was funny.

  • I love this. And how Kenan finds the whole thing funny! Same! This is great!

  • Brilliant skit!!! More of this please!!!!

  • Keenan is the best! Love to see them making fun of both sides, they both deserve it!

  • Very clever. The writers were really on their game this week.

  • Everyone was awesome in this, but Kenan at 2:01 with the card flip smirk and 4:11 "she's the daughter of Dick Cheney" just shows how he can find another level from the material given to him

  • The writing in this skit is absolutely brilliant!

  • I love the fact that a comedy sketch in 2021 pays tribute to an 80s TV sitcom by having the host be named "Benson DuBois." Robert Guillaume must be smiling.

  • This is fantastic comedy. Regardless of what side you're on 🤣😂

  • Best political skit since Tom Hanks played Doug on Black Jeopardy.

    • @Rodney Boehner “I don’t like it so no one else must and it must be fixed.” Still a bit tough but I think I’m ready to go with Republican!

    • @MyFirstDay They can always fix SNL by firing everyone.

    • @Sheila G Well, the ratings for SNL says otherwise.

    • @Rodney Boehner Another challenging one. Only hears people with the same opinion as them so they think something the don’t like must be dying… Still can’t tell!

    • @Sheila G Like a toddler kicking and screaming throwing a temper tantrum, sometimes it’s best just to let these people burn themselves out with their anger and who knows what else. Best not to respond and just let them shout into the ether.

  • I love this one hahahah well done! Legend Kennan!!!!!

  • 2:04-2:04 God! I just ❤ his expression🤣🤣 Good job Keenan!!!👍😁👍

  • The writers of this skit are on 🔥 🔥 this was great.

  • Never have I had such a hard time laughing

  • Republican or Not: This game is harder than it looks. Lol. Clever sketch.

    • @Event Planner TBH, you’re kind of full of shit is (now) the point of my comment. Apparently it’s cool for you to take the Old Testament as “metaphor” but the New Testament is historical fact? So you’re just gonna spit on the fact that the Old Testament is the Torah, the Jewish Bible, that predates the birth of Christ & is the Word of God, handed to the Jewish people? Their stories are metaphorical, but Jesus is fact? Then why did he transform into Moses? Why would he tell people to “just keep the commandments” if they wanted to enter heaven? Look, I’m not knocking anyone’s faith, I just think if you jump on a public forum talking about yours as if it’s the Truth & everyone else’s is fiction, you got it coming. There have been literal wars fought over this, and I can do w/o any of that, thank you. Everyone should be free to practice in the manner that suits them and all should be treated equally. Best way to do that, keep your faith to yourself & the people you worship with. And FYI, I spent 7 years in Catholic school and was a straight A student, including the subject of religion.

    • @APrime25 The text where Jesus rose from the dead is not metaphorical to me. I believe that Jesus truly died and rose from the dead. And yes apple is never mentioned, instead fruit is mentioned in the Bible. My point still stands. I don't understand what you mean by Adam and Eve could not have existed. The first humans (man and woman) had to have existed. Now when they existed is up to debate with scholars. And I don't care to have that debate right now. I don't really understand the purpose of your comment tbh.

    • @Event Planner “Some text is meant to be metaphorical…” Which text isn’t? In your reference to the story of Adam & Eve, you mention “an apple”, which is never mentioned in the Bible at all. People “think” Apple, thanks to renaissance art. You also began your analysis of the metaphorical with whether Adam & Eve “ate anything or just suffered consequences of some action” instead of whether Adam & Eve could’ve even existed. They couldn’t, but the “metaphorical” point of the story still has merit. It seems you’re on your way to an academic understanding of Genesis, but you’re not quite there yet.

    • @Kevin Kim Oh okay I understand. Also, I agree. In the Bible it literally states when reading it you have to take cultural/historical differences into consideration. Some text is meant to be metaphorical allegory and teach the reader a certain lesson. Especially with the Old Testament. For example, the story of Adam and Eve. We don't know for a fact that the forbidden fruit was an apple or that they even ate a forbidden fruit at all to begin with. All we know or need to know is that they were tempted by the devil, disobeyed God, and as a result faced consequences (exile) that didn't just affect them but their future descendants. The reader is not always meant to take the text literally, atleast not until the New Testament. Even in Revelation there is a lot of symbolism. The only religious teachers I know that would try to replace science with the Bible are extremists. Even the nuns at our schools taught AP Chemistry. I was just trying to clear up that there is this big misconception that religious people don't believe in science, but I know so many religious people who aren't just educators in science but are studying to be doctors and physician assistants.

    • @Event Planner Historically, I think the Supreme Court had given much more jurisdiction over education to states rather than the federal government and so the effect of that could be disparity in what is taught from one area of the country to another. You could have really well funded schools that produce students that take honors and advanced placement classes but also parts of the country where textbooks are falling apart and the school building itself needs remodeling. Since I am not a lawyer, I cannot say what the exact laws on the books are regarding science and religion education. The aggregate data I presented to another commenter only provided a statistic but not how those teachers were able to teach such a subject and whether or not those teachers were clustered into one region of the country. My only point was that there is enough of a plurality of teachers teaching creationism and that my stance on the role of religion in education is that it should be taught appropriately as either a cultural/historical and maybe even theological subject to understand but not act as a substitute for science. Also, from my own reading of the Bible over the years, the material and its organization does not really seem to suggest that it is intended to be read as a scientific source material but rather philosophical, theological, historical, and spiritual type of work. The narrative of the Bible focuses in on Jesus Christ with the Old Testament functioning as the part that provides the background for the necessity and involvement of the messiah leading to the New Testament. It offers us the idea that Jesus Christ is the prescription for the illness that is sin and does not really focus on the actual mechanisms in which the natural world operates (only that God is sovereign over those mechanisms).

  • OK now. This is actually funny. Such a well balanced bashing of both sides.

  • Kenan is the best THE BEST THE BEST on SNL. That guy is an icon! He always kills every role!!!!

  • Proof SNL has a good skit once in a while. 👍

  • We need to learn to have conversations again, instead of making generalizations about people. One of SNLs best!

  • I'm just waiting for when Kenan actually becomes a game show host.

    • that would be a waste of a talent if you ask me

    • Dating Game

    • Wasn't he a game show host at some point when he was at Nickelodeon?

    • @Aaron Michael We will watch that

    • He's incredible at it

  • This was genius, it rides the line perfectly lol

  • This is so good! Well done!

  • This comments section perfectly sums up how incredibly clever this skit was. 😄

  • As a Republican, this is amazing 😂

  • “You still don’t get it” is the most appropriate line to end it on

    • @Orion Red Black Jeapardy is recurring there have been a few of em.

    • I don’t think we’re ever gonna get it 😂!

    • @Shiraz S. yeah, it was

    • @Metalbass10000 "It's funny because it's an oversized hat."

    • @Metalbass10000 They said Black Jeopardy. Not Celebrity Jeopardy. That said, old school Celebrity Jeopardy was comic gold, and Norm's impression of Burt was brilliant.

  • This is one of the most clever sketches that SNL has done in a long time! 👏🏾 Hilarious! Anybody know who wrote this sketch by chance?

  • Actually funny skit for once. Good job guys

  • This was damn good. I hope SNL revisits this concept in the future.

  • One of their best segments in years

  • "I grew up in Ohio; so I've been playing this game my whole life." This whole skit was freakin' brilliant. And, yeah, context is everything. It's like when surveys ask if one approves of the direction in which the country is heading or whether President Biden is doing a good job -- both the Left and the Right could honestly answer "no," but for very different reasons.

    • @Dobbys Boggart YES! We need more than a two party system! We also need more people to get on board with voting for somebody other than a Rep or Dem, back in 2016 I voted for Gary Johnson because my views align more with Libertarian than Rep or Dem, people from both major parties told me I was throwing my vote away...I asked them if they liked the candidate they were voting for and they said "no, but I like the other candidate even less" and I told them "then YOU are the one throwing your vote away" 🤷‍♂

    • @Aidan Eccles Yes. It's called representative democracy. Ideally, we'd create a system that didn't have a President (or other central authority figure-king, dictator, etc.) at all.

    • @Nicolas B yeah, definitely.

    • @Rex The Legend lol i fell asleep just after writing that, don't even remember what i said. as for people being relunctant for psychiatric care, i'd say thats far more likely due to the stigma of psychiatric care being for "crazies", than fear of cost. the ambulance, or skipping physical, is usually the thing of "it's not that bad", or "i'm sure it'll go away soon". like apendicidis(pretty sure i spelled that horribly wrong). many people wouldn't think it's anything more than a bad stomach ache. they'd take some medicine, and lay down. for not calling the ambulance, sure some may be afraid of costs, but i highly doubt it's the main reason. also, saying "you think, objectively, universal is preferable", is literally the opposite of "objective". thats subjective, your opinion. objectively, they both have positives and negatives. subjectively, i prefer the american system. technically neither is better than the other, objectively. it's really up to which price your willing to pay(ironically enough lol). same with the political beliefs thing, i can't stand discourse when it's muddied by peoples politics. i prefer to talk about the facts of a situation, pros and cons(probably pretty obvious), then stating preference, rather than anything else. and yes, i agree it is morbid that some people die due to fear of the costs. they fear the costs, more than they value their lives, thats pretty depressing. i think canadas system is morbid as well, waiting to get care, not knowing if you'll get care first, or die, and theres nothing you can do. death in general, is a morbid topic. healthcare, by association, tends to get morbid as well. this was a pretty fun convo though, glad we got to a good point of agreement.

    • ​@Nicolas B ah okay, I misunderstood your point. Also, I'm tired and meant to say universal, not free (obviously nothing is free). I would agree with you on the grounds that there isn't really a viable transition option, from privatized to universal, for America. I think that, objectively, Universal healthcare is preferable to privatized. There's something very morbid about many Americans dying due to the costs; or more so, the fear that comes from incurring medical debt, or just the fear of a high bill. What I mean by that is, like I said before: ambulances. Prime example of many American's reluctance to use (potentially lifesaving) services, due to the high prices. That fear does not end at ambulances. Many will avoid going to doctors. Many will ignore health issues, or wait until their next physical--that is dangerous. Now, I could go on and on about how bs psychiatric insurance premiums are, and how expensive it is, but I'll just use a common sense argument cause I don't feel like looking up statistics. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in America; it's the 2nd leading cause for American individuals in the age range of 10-30 (roughly). I'm pretty sure that it's not irrational to say that cost of psychiatric care likely contributes to those numbers. Also, I'm pretty sure every American is tired of Navigating insurance premiums. I swear, every time I go to the pharmacy feels like I'm at an argumentative dmv. And yeah, I'm not even gonna touch your last points...but, I enjoy political discourse without focusing on political identities (as in, my policies and beliefs matter more than which side I'm on).

  • This was a spectacular skit thank you.

  • We need more of this show.

  • This sketch was so accurate 😂😂

  • This is how the humor and satire should be. Not alienating half an audience by pushing an agenda from one side. Kudos to SNL for this. I think we can all agree both sides have pluses and minuses 😂.

  • I also think that this should be a recurring sketch, like Black Jeopardy.

    • Nah, they should flip it to Democrat or not.

    • So you can continue to watch a show that lost its comedic value 5 years ago? It's all good some of us still have a sense of humor and watch other shows

    • It's a gold mine.

    • I absolutely agree! Hell, I'd love to play one of the Maybe Republicans. I love animals. To pet or to hunt? I grew up in the suburbs. Of New York or Dallas? I believe in medical freedom. For vaccinations or abortions? I'm sick of there being so many pedos. In Hollywood or religious institutions?

    • One of my favorites was "Can I Play That?"

  • I def thought it be a hit piece, but this was truly amazing!!

  • Keenan's chops as game show host are second-to-none! It's awesome when he's having fun with it, too. His Black Jeopardy with "Doug" (Hanks) was fantastic! Seriously, hella dope!!

  • Finally! A bit of satire that doesn't just feel like it's all one-sided.

  • This was too good 😂😂

  • “Yes but he was talking about these cops” best line

    • @Kenny Laysh ….Stormed? Man, you guys need to watch more videos. That was a riot with a soft “r.”

    • @Kenny Laysh they literally let them it

    • @stay away from assholes both sides hate the cops when it fits their agenda

    • *aggressively flips cards*

    • @Ghost OG 42 typical demonrat...talk too much with little said

  • SNL has improved over the last few seasons. I imagine the pandemic lockdowns allowed the writers to produce a shedload of material going forward. And i love that this one seemed to be right n the centre when its usually 100% far left.

    • The orange man isn't president anymore, and the ratings have dropped the last few seasons is the only reason.

  • Kenna should stay on SNL forever. He’s evergreen.

  • This made my year. Thanks SNL!

  • I’m Republican and I really loved this skit. Anything that points out the hypocrisy on both sides of the aisle is amazing and needs to be done more!

  • That was the most genius SNL skit in years.

    • @steve bri this is a visual communication not auditory, dumaz

    • @Will Baxter You should probably work on your listening comprehension skills

    • @steve bri they didn’t say Dave changed, dummy. They said he has started to attract a new audience. Dam u dum, I wouldn’t expect you to even begin to understand the complexity of SNL

    • With respect if you think that was a genius skit you must be very simple minded

    • @Khronogi agreed

  • Here I thought this was yet another anti-conservative sketch, but as it turns out it is possible for them to do something bipartisan. As an independent who regularly gets called one side or the other this skit resonated with me.

    • @MacD abortions aren’t “killing innocent babies”. Republicans will protect that ‘baby’ until it’s born into poverty or any misfortune and then let ‘em starve and suffer

    • @Elyria The democrats depicted were just as evil. Where are the depictions of decent democrats who don't want to kill innocent babies, vilify all those who dare disagree with them, and believe in facts and logic rather than emotional fantasy? Where are the democrats who oppose children being locked in cages during a Democrat's presidency like when the program was started under Obama and now? Where's the Democrats smart enough to blame people and not objects like guns when something happens? Where are the democrats smart enough to realize a coup requires weapons to over throw a government and isn't just a bunch of people walking through restricted areas? The sketch was showing democrats to be just as, if not more evil than Republicans. It was grouping them together to show they're all the same.

    • @Elyria As soon as those Republicans stand up and oust the Trumplicans, maybe we'll see them 🧐

    • I mean the republicans depicted were still pretty evil. Supported a coup and trump. Where are the depictions of decent republicans that don't want to restrict education access, women's rights, trans rights? The republicans that don't believe children should be locked in cages? The republicans that acknowledge the work of world respected scientists rather than denying what has been proven time and time again? The republicans that want to keep kids from shooting up schools? Why aren't they showing the republicans that want everyone to have access to healthcare?! Fuck me that unicorn is out there...

  • Keenan was the best part of this sketch🤣🤣

  • This kind of already was, but I would like to see this for Democrats too. I would like to see how much/if they change anything. Best SNL skit in a long time.

  • This was too good 😂😂😂

  • Keenan's gleeful trolling as a gameshow host never gets old.

    • He's picking up where Bill Hader left off.

  • I love playing this at the Thanksgiving table!

  • They need more of this is hilarious 😂 sad...but still hilarious

  • Writers keep killing it this season

  • Funny part to me is that u can tell the answer without them even talking 😂
