SNL Destroys Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Batshit Transphobia
After giving conservatives something to embrace in this week’s cold open, Saturday Night Live steered hard in the other direction during “Weekend Update” when Cecily Strong revived her Marjorie Taylor Greene impression to take the QAnon congresswoman to task for her appalling display of transphobia.As Colin Jost explained, Greene “caused more controversy this week after she put up a sign outside the office of a congresswoman with a transgender daughter that said, ‘There are two genders, male and female. Trust the science.’”“You know me, I’m a science person,” Greene, carrying a gun and wearing a T-shirt that read “Trust the Sience,” told Jost. “I love science. I’m always talking science, OK? Unless that science is about climate change, coronavirus, space lasers, evolution, the metric system, the rhythm method, breastfeeding, living on Mars, Jesus’ skin color or Santa’s skin color, by the way, which is white.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

SNL Gives Fox News Something to Love by Roasting Dr. Fauci and Andrew Cuomo
This past week, Fox News finally lost its collective mind over Saturday Night Live’s reluctance to parody Joe Biden the way the show hammered Donald Trump for the previous four years. And while that trend continued on the latest episode, SNL did give any conservative viewers out there something to love by taking on not only Dr. Anthony Fauci but also a trio of Democratic governors in a cold open game show called “So You Think You Can Get the Vaccine.”“The vaccine rollout is going strong, but it is also very confusing,” Kate McKinnon’s Fauci said at the top of the sketch. “Who can get it? How? When? Where is it? Do both doses go in the same arm or different arms or what? I don’t know!”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Cuomosexuality Is Dishing About Your Daughters and Creeping on Your Staffers
REUTERSAs the daughter of a father, my stomach crawled up into my throat when I read Charlotte Bennett’s account of her time working for Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Bennett is not only the same age as Cuomo’s daughters, she actually told him that in middle school she’d played sports against them. And yet, Cuomo found it appropriate—and, he says, mentorly!—to repeatedly interrogate her about her sex life, talk to her about his physical loneliness since his split from his longtime girlfriend, and advise her to get a tattoo on her butt.I specify that these feelings come up for me as the daughter of a father because men so often think it’s relevant to frame their concern for women in the context of their familial ties. Cuomo also benefited last year from situating himself as New York State’s dad-in-chief. Just a month before Cuomo’s behavior toward her became aggressively unprofessional, according to Bennett, Cuomo was giving his Emmy-winning little sitcom performance about his daughter’s boyfriend and “natural defiance syndrome.” The summer of Cuomosexuality takes sure seems different looking back.After what Bennett described, I sincerely hope that no one is taking fatherhood lessons from Andrew Cuomo. I am nearly a decade older than Bennett, and if any of my friends’ fathers spoke to me the way he spoke to her, I would not see that friend’s father again unless he had an open-casket funeral.Read more at The Daily Beast.
