Saturday Night Live’s skit featuring Donald Trump, his Secretary of State pick, and Vladimir Putin was a well-designed plot that perfectly made fun of Trumps flawed character while featuring the real danger of his Putin love fest.
Saturday Night Live gets Trump again
The opening Saturday Night Live skit displayed excellent writing using humor to point out many serious Trump flaws that will be haunting.
Vladimir Putin made a visit to Trump Tower in his iconic shirtless ‘splendor.’ Melania advised Trump that it would look inappropriate to be meeting with Putin. Trump approached Putin.
“Vladimir, I am afraid I am going to have to ask you to go,” Trump told Putin. “It might look bad for us to be seen together.”
“Brilliant observation,” Putin replied. “You are always so smart Mr. Trump.”
“You can stay as you want,” Trump replied.
This exchange points out one of Trump’s biggest character flaws. Compliment him, and he will give you anything.
Kellyanne Conway announces the arrival of Trump’s secretary of state pick and Exxon CEO, Rex Tillerson who enters the room where Trump and Putin are present.
“Putee?” Rex Tillerson said with glee. “Oh, my God.
“Rexy, baby,” Putin responded to Tillerson.
They then went into personalized handshake indicating a relationship.
“Oh, my star Donny,” shouted Tillerson. “You didn’t tell me Putee was going to be here. Man have I been hoping to catch up with you.”
“It’s the wild friend,” Putin chimed in. “So much to talk about.”
Putin then pulls out a map.
“We are having some oil drilling problems here in Vankor Field,” Putin tells Tillerson.
“Oh, that’s no problem,” Tillerson replied. “As soon as the sanctions are lifted we’ll up our intake by 30%.”
Trump asked what are Tillerson and Putin talking about.
“Don’t worry about it,” Putin replied.
Tillerson then asked Putin about doubling production in the Coral Sea.
“Already on the way,” Putin replied. “Just have to take control of Lomonosov Bridge. My military is on it.”,
This part of the skit illustrates the collusion between government, industry, and war.
This occurs while Trump is concerned about harming Vanity Fair, the magazine that maligned his restaurant.
While Tillerson and Putin continue to discuss strategy, Trump continues discussing shallow topics from Kanye to hair color.
This skit is a perfect paraphrase of Donald Trump based on his actions to date.
