It’s bad enough that Saturday Night Live is unfunny liberal propaganda, but is the NBC show now engaging in anti-Semitic tropes? During the “Weekend Update” segment of Saturday’s episode, comedian Michael Che offered this “joke”: “Israel is reporting that they have vaccinated half their population. And I’m going to guess it’s the Jewish half.”
It's lame, not funny, and false. Here’s the cringe-inducing video:
The American Jewish Committee’s David Harris decried:
Former Bush White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer condemned the joke as “vile.”
This is the same “Weekend Update” that, in 2018, trashed then-congressional candidate Dan Crenshaw, a military vet who lost his eye to an IED blast, as a “hitman in a porno movie.” SNL's Pete Davidson was later forced to apologize. Will the show apologize for this vile "joke"?
