NY Post: SNL Star Backed Out of Unfunny Skit Bashing Stefanik, Not Lefty Colleges

Political News

On Monday, the New York Post’s Sara Nathan revealed in an exclusive that longtime Saturday Night Live star Cecily Strong felt “uncomfortable” and backed out of playing House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) in the December 9 episode’s cold open attacking her questioning of cowardly heads of Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and University of Pennsylvania for their failure to address anti-Semitism on their campuses.

Nathan reported that “Strong backed out” after rehearsals “because she was ‘uncomfortable’ with the heavily criticized cold-open sketch, sources confirm to The Post.”

This left new cast member Chloe Troast to take her place as Stefanik with a crazy ex-girlfriend vibe. The Post added the cold open “was slightly rushed” in coming together, as evidenced by “a mix-up with the nameplates in front of” those playing the presidents of MIT and Penn.

NBC’s SNL, long known as a painfully unfunny show and instead group therapy for deranged leftists, seemed to have touched a nerve given their lack of concern for anti-Semitism and support on college campuses for Hamas terrorists who slaughtered Jews on October 7.

Instead, the NBC show determined Stefanik was the problem with Troast playing her as a deeply partisan and shriek-filled bimbo who told the faux university chiefs she’d be “screaming questions…like I’m Billy Eichner.”

SNL’s Stefanik also suggested Republicans denouncing anti-Semitism at universities were hypocrites because “hate speech” is better suited for “Congress, on Elon Musk’s Twitter, in private dinners with my donors, and in public speeches by my work husband, Donald Trump.”

While it was unsurprising the Post noted the audience’s discomfort with the sketch, it was more intriguing that the liberal tools at the Daily Beast and the entertainment site The Wrap took notice.

“The troubled sketch seemed to receive both lukewarm laughs and a largely negative response from viewers sharing their thoughts online,” wrote The Wrap. 

When you’re a leftist outfit and The Daily Beast was calling you out, it’s safe to say you messed up: “The sketch, meanwhile, received a tepid response from those in the crowd and at home; The Daily Beast contributor Jennifer M. Wood called the cold open “meandering” and a “mess” that didn’t elicit much laughter from the audience.”
