Somebody Should Get Fired Over SNL’s Benghazi Skit


It’s gotten to the point where I’m amazed when SNL is actually funny or relevant as political satire, but Saturday’s cold open wasn’t just a dud as a joke, but completely offensive to the four Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi. To sum it up, it’s a mock hearing on what happened in Libya with an attempt to make some sort of commentary on the media. Bonus: SNL not only offends on Benghazi, but adds in the horror of the three kidnapped women in Cleveland.

It’ so unfunny and so offensive, somebody should really lose their job over it. Who could have seen this skit in rehearsal and thought it was even remotely funny? You can watch the train-wreck here:
