*You just knew “Saturday Night Live” would weigh in on Kanye West‘s trip to speak with Trump in Oval Office of the White House, didn’t you? Well they did and if you missed it, we’ve got the deets and the video!
Here’s more via TMZ:
Alec Baldwin made his return to ‘SNL’ to parody Ye’s Oval chit chat. What[;’s interesting, as TMZ points out, is that most of the time, “SNL” takes a real event and makes it broader, but this one was pretty much true to form … with all the hits, runs and errors from Thursday’s pre-lunch meeting pretty much left in. The reporters in the crowd were definitely funnier than the real deal … for sure.
At the very end, ‘SNL’ makes a not-so-oblique reference to the rumored “Celebrity Apprentice” outtakes … Omarosa and others have said Trump used the n-word during filming of the TV show.
Meanwile, in an alternate universe, producer Mally Mall says Kanye West is doing great work, trying to help the United States … and he’s nothing less than a genius.
TMZ spoke to Mally Mall outside Staples Center Saturday night where Drake performed, and he sang the praises of Ye.
Mally was especially complimentary about Kanye’s efforts to free Larry Hoover, who’s serving a life sentence for murder.
Kanye is currently in Africa and, fact is, in addition to recording an album, he’s spending time doing humanitarian work in various African nations.
