SNL tackles sexual harassment and Tiffany
Haddish makes history as the first black female
comedian to host !
Girls Trip" star Tiffany Haddish made history
Saturday night as the first black female stand-up
comic to host "Saturday Night Live."
"I grew up in foster care," Haddish said in
her opening monologue.
"I've lived in a lot of group homes and my
favorite show growing up was 'SNL.'
You have no idea how difficult it is to get
a bunch of black and Hispanic kids to watch
'SNL' over 'In Living Color.'"
Haddish also touched on the spate of sexual
harassment allegations erupting across Hollywood
by offering a sage "Tiff tip."
"Listen fellas," she said.
"If you've got your thing-thing out, and she
got all her clothes on, you're wrong.
You're in the wrong."
In a meta moment, the show also addressed
the controversy last week’s host Larry David
faced after joking in his opening monologue
about picking up women at a concentration
David returned last night in his recurring
role as Sen. Bernie Sanders, saying: "We're
really going to lace into people if they don't
say what's politically correct.
Like these comics out there who think it's
OK to make jokes about concentration camps.
That guy should rot in hell."
The topic of sexual misconduct was highlighted
in several other moments throughout the night.
A sketch featuring cast members Mikey Day,
portraying Alabama Republican Senate nominee
Roy S. Moore, and Beck Bennett, playing Vice
President Mike Pence, touched on a scandal
that has shaken Republicans in recent days.
Sitting ramrod straight, Pence tries to convince
Moore to end his candidacy over widening allegations
that he engaged in improper sexual conduct
with teenagers decades ago.
"The left-wing media loves to repeat these
sexual harassment stories," said Day as Moore.
"There's a new one every day, Mike."
"I know," replied Bennett as Pence.
"Even I heard about Louis C.K. and I'm not
allowed to watch TV, I'm only allowed to listen
Later in the sketch, Kate McKinnon (performing
in convincing makeup as Atty.
Gen. Jeff Sessions) referenced it again while
speaking to a taxidermic possum she referred
to as Papa.
"There's so many men out there acting like
monsters," she said.
"Mr. Weinstein, Kevin Spacey … the president.
Daddy, has this been happening forever?
Have I both fostered and benefited from a
culture of systemic oppression?
Well, that's a relief."
During "Weekend Update," co-anchors Colin
Jost and Michael Che also made pointed commentary
on the barrage of sexual harassment allegations
"Well, it's a good weekend to stay inside,
since it's 20 degrees out and everyone you've
ever heard of is a sex monster," said Jost.
The screen behind him flashed images of C.K.,
Spacey, Weinstein and Moore.
On Moore, Jost said, "I'm not saying he's
guilty, but his naughty little cowboy outfit
is screaming it.
He looks like a guy who shows up in 'Westworld'
and says, 'Hey, can someone show me where
the middle school is?'"
Che jumped in with commentary on Alabama state
auditor Jim Zeigler's use of the Bible to
"Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult
carpenter," Ziegler told the Washington Examiner
"They became parents of Jesus."
"So that's what you're going with?" said Che
"Roy Moore was trying to make a Jesus?
Oh, OK, so guess R. Kelly was just trying
to make it rain for 40 days and 40 nights."
Later in the sketch cast member Cecily Strong
joined the desk as the harried Claire from
HR, with a receipt stuck to her neck and hair
"What is the appropriate way to handle a workplace
Strong quizzed Jost.
"A) inform someone at H.R., B)
lock her in a room and make her look at it,
or C) bully her out of the entire industry?"
She held up a doll dressed in a suit with
a cigar in his mouth and asked Jost, "When
talking to a co-worker in the office, where
should you keep your penis?"
"Just point on the doll where your penis should
be,” she clarified.
"No wrong answers here, just super-wrong answers."
Before taking her leave, Strong was serious
for a moment.
"All of this isn't just a scandal, it didn't
just start last week.
It's just actual reality
for half of the population."
