In this skit from tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live, the refusal of our Republican legislators to stand up for our nation’s values and do anything at all to check the power of Donald Trump is put on full blast.
With a dramatic voiceover and clips from mainstream media news outlets painting a dark picture of a divided nation, the narrator describes the how the American people are searching for one Republican to stand up to tyrant Trump and for the ideals that our nation was founded on.
His name… To Be Decided.
Republicans in Congress have gone out of their way to enable Trump and excuse every horrendously un-American policy, every offensive remark, and every embarrassing gaffe. This sketch is a perfect indictment of their cowardice.
