Tina Fey talks ‘SNL’s political impact: ‘I don’t think that show can really sway...

The former "Weekend Update" anchor who was this week's guest on "David Tennant Does a Podcast With," said she's' "glad" she's no longer on "SNL" given the increased demands the current news environment has put on the show's writers. "I feel relieved," said Fey, who served as head writer from 1999 to 2006. "The culture is so ugly and the political climate is so ugly. You'd have Bush Sr. come do a thing with Dana Carvey ... It's so truly ugly now." Richmond saw the physical resemblance, though she begged to differ. Fey recalled, "My husband said, 'She looks like you.' ' Though her Palin impression is now part of political pop-culture history and gets trotted out during every"SNL" election special, Fey doesn't believe it accomplished much other than highlighting existing ideas about the person she was impersonating.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 13, 2018 “Fair, but you know who else is supposed to know the law?” Che asked. “The frigging president of the United States! … Dude, we are paying you money for this!” The roasting by SNL, which also included a Trump-bashing It’s a Wonderful Life parody cold open, was so harsh, it triggered Trump to respond on Twitter and forget that the First Amendment guarantees a free press. It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal? Only defame & belittle! SNL is colluding with NBC News and the Democrats to make Trump break the law and say stupid stuff on Twitter!
