In the latest SNL episode, which featured Mick Jagger, one sketch has a laughable Al Sharpton, played by Kenan Thompson. As someone who multitasks while watching TV shows on Hulu, I often put on the captions while I watch. What struck me as odd was when I heard “Sharpton” say “When I’m not doing this show, all I do is play Draw Something and sample olive oil relaxants at the barber shop.”
Probably true, no doubt.
But what’s interesting is that the caption below it said “Look, since this George Zimmerman thing settled, all I do is….”
That’s not what Kenan/”Al” actually said.
It would make sense that the caption are pre-written so that they can be available on Hulu when the video goes public (usually a day after its TV release)… so did the SNL writers or crew change the lines at the last minute (that is, after the captions were written)? Was some sane person silenced for attempting to call out Sharpton’s ridiculous Zimmerman-related incidents?
I’d sure like to know.
I’ve reached the end of the Mick Jagger episode, when he launches into a blues song with Jeff Beck about the presidential election.
It starts off pretty well, until he calls Mitt Romney a “Mitch,” and warns all viewers to “never let him cut your hair.”
What the hell. Did no one hear that the family and Mitt both denied that any bullying incident took place back in 1965? But Obama’s self-confessed “bullying” was just tabled immediately? That’s ignorance and hypocrisy from the left, as usual.
Jagger then assures the audience that “in six months, [Mitt]‘ll be shouting “honey, won’t you let me out of this mess.”"
Well, Mick, you know what? We will fight until the very last second. We will fight until every bone in our bodies break, because we will not stop to restore our country’s honor, freedom, and economy.
We will fight.
