“Saturday Night Live” returned this weekend with a full slate of iconic sketches featuring Jason Sudeikis.
The cast first took on the controversy surrounding the ongoing fight for civility on college campuses.
“Tonight, we’ve got someone who is tired of college campuses trying to kick her out because she holds a minority viewpoint. Someone who keeps getting kicked out even though she teaches a class about Obama,” Cecily Strong explained, launching into a skit where Cecily Strong’s character is interviewing a “ex-panelist” at a college on how it feels to be kicked out because of a controversial speech.
Democrat nominee for president O.J. Simpson came in last in a simple one-on-one interview with Jean McGianni Jaffe.
“OK I know I said some crazy shit 20 years ago, so I might be boring, but every once in a while I just go on national TV and I say shit I’d rather not say, and maybe in ten years they’ll call me back,” he said to Jaffe.
Jason Sudeikis’ seventh season as “SNL” host started with “Making It In America” but then quickly blossomed into skits using his trademark sarcasm and sarcastic comments.
Finally, more sketches were in store, including one where Sudeikis’ character dressed as a lobbyist impersonating Sen. Marco Rubio (Colin Jost), as well as a skit where Sudeikis took on President Trump.
