SNL Takes on Senator Susan Collins in Cold Open
From the iconic "Commercial Shoot" parodying the iconic Dysarts "Buttery Flaky Crust" commercial to the ever confusing "Maine Justice," Saturday Night Live is no stranger to taking on the State of Maine.
This week their sights were set on Senator Susan Collins during their cold open. The sketch was set during an episode of "Meet the Press" with Chuck Todd alongside a spot-on Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Cecily Strong taking on our very own Susan Collins.
The first lines out of her mouth perfectly captured Collins' unmistakable voice.
They go through a laundry list of scenarios posing the question, "What would it take for President Trump to lose your support?" poking fun at the senators for their seemingly unwavering support of the President no matter how outrageous the circumstance. The sketch jokes about Senator Collins being a "push-over", highlights her support of Israel, and her wavering on women's rights.
Agree or disagree with the jokes made or Collins' politics, you have to admit, the sketch was hilarious! Check it out below!
