Saturday Night Live Pulls Off The Biggest Hoax In
by Roger Freed
SNL has pulled
off the greatest skit in the history of comedy.
They got the
whole country to believe that Donald Trump was
actually our President.
incredibly organized and well oiled spoof that
involved thousands of participants the wacky crew
of the American late night comedy show have
successfully accomplished the greatest comedic
skit of all times. In a highly coordinated
enterprise involving Donald Trump, NBC TV and a
crew of thousands, they created an illusion of
majestic proportions. Beginning with a concept by
SNL Fuhrer Lorne Micheals, they originally
propositioned Trump to run again for President
with the idea of making it seem like he actually
won the election. The other candidates running
were not let in on the scheme in order to make
the hyper-reality show look real.
The best part
of the joke was- THE SNL PLAYERS PRETENDED TO BE
THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE THAT THREW THE VOTE!!!!!
financed the whole scheme at a cost of an
estimated 1½ billion dollars. For his part, all
The Donald had to do was play himself- something
he has been doing since childhood. NBC kept the
whole project under the strictest secrecy, kept
secret from even some of his staff.
It was agreed
upon that the spoof would be kept secret until
after Trump's State of the Union address today
after which it would be publicly announced that
it was all a hoax. Now released, the news of it
hit the world like a tsunami. Shocked quiet at
first, that silence soon turned into a roar- for
some indignation, some uproarious laughter and
others an anger of no defining limit.
was the gregarious joker, laughing and clapping
his fellow 'fake' White House staff as they
celebrated in private. Of course, he was the
chosen host of this week's opening monologue on
SNL which he ended with a loud April Fool!!!
shout out even though it's only January.
the other end of the spectrum, many went into
severe shock at the totally unexpected news. A
rabidly furious Hillary Clinton had to be muzzled
Hannibal Lector style and isolated in a ward
until she cooled down. A frustrated Bernie
Sanders pulled out what was remaining of his hair.
foreign governments are pouring in on Twitter but
are delayed because of translators being unable
to decipher many of the obscene language used in
them. Putin has declared war on the U.S. because
he is disappointed he was not informed and that
his KGB machine did not pick up on the ruse.
