SNL writers have many reasons to dislike Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Beyond just politics, it’s simply less fun to make fun of Sanders compared to her predecessor, Sean Spicer.
But that didn’t stop them from trying. In their first portrayal of the press secretary, they tried a bit of fat-shaming, calling her mother a “southern hamburger.”
Sanders’ father, Mike Huckabee, called the sketch “a little bit silly, sexist, misogynist.”
In their follow-up, SNL decided to blast Sanders’ confidence — by giving her no pants.
In true SNL form, the sketch favored preachiness over comedy. The reporters in the scene we’re portrayed as the adults in the room while Sanders pranced around in a skimpy outfit sining Demi Lovato’s “Confident.” Interspersed between her choreography were ridiculous comments made to make Sanders look like a foolish oaf. It was a far cry from the image the Christian mother tends to portray.
But at least SNL got one detail right. Their Sanders had a clear disdain for thhe questions posed by the press. So does the real Sanders.
She also doesn’t seem to care about the show’s nasty portrayal. During it’s airing, she was busy honoring our military in Japan with Donald Trump.
