The Media Is A Fickle Friend
NEW YORK, NY - Saturday Night Live has been thrashing the Obama administration in recent weeks, delivering punishing satire about the failure of Healthcare.gov. Now the players are taking aim at the president’s supporters, lampooning their mindless devotion to him despite the evidence of his personal failures.
Kenan Thompson hosts a talk show that brings ‘non-partisan’ guests to discuss ‘how President Barack Obama is doing’. The panel discusses the rollout of Healthcare.gov, the domestic spying program of the NSA, and other issues.
Kenan opens by saying it’s been a difficult month for the president. “The most recent Gallup poll puts his approval rating at a disappointing 42% among all voters. But perhaps the more troubling number for the president, his approval rating with black voters has dropped to a startling 93.6%!”
