SNL Seeks to ‘Remind’ Viewers Bush Was a ‘Really Bad’ President, No Mention of Clinton Controversy

'Saturday Night Live' dredged up 10-year-old Bush-bashing in their latest episode, but the 'Weekend Update' made no mention of the latest Clinton controversy.

SNL Seeks to ‘Remind’ Viewers Bush Was a ‘Really Bad’ President, No Mention of Clinton Controversy

“Saturday Night Live” (SNL) spent its opening six minutes this week bashing the decade-old George W. Bush presidency, with Will Ferrell reprising his famous, or infamous, portrayal of the 43rd president.

“So I just wanted to address my fellow Americans and remind you guys that I was really bad,” Ferrell, as Bush, said, according to reporting on the sketch by The Washington Post.

SNL spends plenty of time lampooning President Trump, which can be expected because Trump is the sitting president of the United States. SNL often addresses controversies swirling around the current president.

But to drag out the 10-year-old Bush presidency and “remind” viewers of how “bad” he was seems to confirm, for some, suspicions that SNL and its cast have a liberal bias.

In fact, despite covering a number of stories in their weekly “Weekend Update,” SNL chose not to address the new controversy with Hillary Clinton, exposed in a New York Times story this week. According to the Times, Clinton did not fire an adviser to her 2008 campaign accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment.

The eight-minute, rapid-fire “Weekend Update” did not address the Clinton controversy, and it appears the cover-up story is nowhere to be found in SNL’s latest episode.

A decade-old Republican presidency, though? You better believe SNL will cover that.
