Norm Macdonald, known for his deadpan delivery & fearless commitment to bits that would make other comedians cringe, has died at 61.

From late-night appearances to letting jokes bombs for his own amusement, Variety looks back at his most iconic bits.
Macdonald created one of the most iconic #SNL impressions ever with the help of a novelty foam cowboy hat and the nickname “Turd Ferguson.”

Watch the clip:
Macdonald’s “Weekend Update” coverage of O.J. Simpson generated some of most incendiary jokes about the trial on #SNL.

Fan of #MollyShannon’s Mary Katherine Gallagher?

The actress is opening up about a dark part of her history that influenced the iconic character…
So complete was her dedication to the Catholic schoolgirl that she’d willingly throw herself into a pile of metal chairs, without padding, and barely register any pain.…
In her years of fame, she hasn’t talked much publicly about a fatal accident within her family or its aftermath.

Speaking with The Times, she opens up about the experience and how it shaped her career.…

Once we idolized astronauts & civil rights leaders who inspired hope and empathy. Now we worship tech innovators that create billions and move financial markets. #nomercynomalice #SNL
Zuck's empire has been disarticulated—a new king will seize the Iron Throne. Behold the Launcher of Dragons, Borer of Tunnels & Father of X Æ A-Xii. The coronation will take place before a live studio audience, with Tesla long bots and adoring CNBC personalities.

Saturday Night Live just took a dig at Israeli apartheid: #SNL
This 👆 is their 2nd best dig since the un-aired Chuck Hagel confirmation parody where they skewered US politicians for over-the-top pandering to Israel:
& as the replies show a concerted effort to deny Israeli apartheid, here is a mountain of evidence proving it:

Hilaria Baldwin, a New York wellness personality and yoga studio owner who's married to actor Alec Baldwin, came under fire for misrepresenting her heritage and nationality over several years…
Baldwin admitted Sunday that she was not half-Spanish and that her given name is Hillary.

(Although she had claimed her place of birth was the Spanish island of Mallorca, she was born in Boston, internet sleuths found)…
The scandal gained traction on Twitter as users posted threads appearing to show her story changing down the years through media appearances and others identifying themselves as her ex-classmates, saying her name was always “Hillary”…

#thread Dear Mr. President, I want to start this series of tweets by saying I am neither Republican or Democrat. I'm not excited about a Biden Presidency because the cynical nature in me says no matter what party is in power, it's business as usual.
I believe power truly comes from the people, and it is a population's responsibility to be educated in the process of government, understand the differences between a democracy and republic, how the legislative system works on all three levels, and have a basic... (cont.)
...understanding of civics from the most local of levels to the highest in the land. You have spent a large amount of time on this platform and I thought this might be the best way to get this message to you. I believe in America, its people and the process. (cont.)

A brief thread on why it's fine to #DragWhiteWomen:

1/ Last night on #SNL, #BillBurr dragged white women. He's not alone. It's constant, on Twitter and elsewhere. White men drag white women. POC drag white women. Even white women drag white women. Constantly.

And we deserve it.
2/ Why? Well, in 2008 and 2012, POC had the chance to make history by turning out for Barack Obama. And y'all did. Twice!

In 2016, white women had the chance to make history by turning out for Hillary Clinton. And 2/3rds of us voted for Trump, voted 3rd party, or didn't vote.
3/ Yes, white women are singularly responsible for Trump and all the horrors he's wrought.

It's true that white men overwhelmingly voted for Trump, but that's our fault too. We should've raised them better, or got them in line.

"Saturday Night Live" has canceled an appearance by a country singer scheduled for this weekend.

Here's what happened 👇👇👇…
Country star #MorganWallen was set to perform on an episode hosted by Bill Burr.

However, clips surfaced on social media showing Wallen partying in tightly packed crowds without a mask…
“My actions this past weekend were pretty short-sighted, and they have obviously affected my long-term goals and my dreams,” he said in a video from his hotel room.

But there was another troubling aspect of the partying clips that circulated:…

Dans la nuit, séisme politico-judiciaire aux Etats-Unis avec la mort de Ruth Bader Ginsburg (#RBG) juge à la Cour suprême depuis 1993.
Avant quelques réflexions sur les conséquences de ce décès, il convient de rappeler qui elle était.
Née en 1933 à Brooklyn dans une famille d’immigrés juifs de Russie, #RBG fit de brillantes études d’abord à l’université Cornell, puis à la fac de droit de Harvard (où elle est une des rares femmes de sa promotion) et à celle de Columbia 2/
En 1956, à Harvard, reçu à dîner par le doyen de la fac de droit avec ses condisciples féminines, leur hôte lui demande pourquoi elle prend la place d’un homme ?!
#RBG est une des étudiantes les plus brillantes dont le talent et le sérieux mettent à mal les clichés misogynes 3/

#RNC was "explicitly told beforehand" both by #LeonardCohen's estate & company that licenses "Hallelujah" that it didn't have the right to use the song. Trump played it twice on the final night anyway. Trump takes what he wants. To hell with YOUR rights.…
#LeonardCohen's estate "surprised & dismayed" Trump played "Hallelujah" after he was denied the right to use it & brazenly attempted to "exploit in such an egregious manner" 1 of Cohen's "most important songs."

They're Canadian. No American's surprised & 40% aren't dismayed.
Anyone think I'm crazy to assume Trump played #LeonardCohen's "Hallelujah" (despite being denied the right to play it) because Kate McKinnon played it dressed as Hillary as the cold open for #SNL's 1st show after he won?

Anyone? Anyone?

"I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you."

Did Trump play #LeonardCohen after his speech because the word #hallelujah is repeated 32 times or because #KateMcKinnon sang it dressed as #Hillary as the cold open to the 1st #SNL after the election?
I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I'll stand before the lord of song
With nothing on my tongue but hallelujah
I can't walk. I would drag myself 5 miles to TownHall to #VoteBiden. I got nothing if babies in cages & shithole countries & +20,000 lies, & +181,000 dead, & "slow the testing down" & "Putin told me he didn't do it" hasn't convinced YOU to vote this white nationalist outta power.

#Thread The list is long on the “things” #MayorPete didn’t know while mayor of #SouthBend. It would be an #SNL skit IF he wasn’t a front runner for POTUS
2/ This is some of wat I knw: From the time I was a kindergarten student in #SBCSC— the district was & still is under a desegregation order 🤦🏾‍♂️
3/ And, for the ppl in the back, segregation doesn’t happen in schools, it happens in neighborhoods. #MayorPete is the mayor of every (segregated) neighborhood in #SouthBend

Thread: While it's true #ShaneGillis should be fired for using anti-Asian slurs, it's impossible to hold #SNL accountable for its complicity in anti-Asian racism w/o also addressing the troubling potential for how they'll use new cast member #BowenYang. 1/
Based on SNL's past, it's worth asking: why cast Yang now? Is it because SNL wants more Kim Jong-un sketches? Or because they need an EA man to portray presidential candidate Andrew Yang? In either scenario, is the goal to uplift Asians or mock them as strange or dangerous? 2/
It's easy to celebrate Yang's hiring & condemn Gillis' remarks, but it's important to see how these two decisions are just the "quiet" & "loud" versions of the same anti-Asian racism coin. We don't have to guess at what kind of sketches Yang will be in—we've already seen it. 3/

Is it possible for @DJKhaled to perform without like a million other people on stage? #SNL #SNLFinale
That's a hard no. What would a song of just DJ Khaled sound like? Is it just him yelling "DJ Khaled!" Every 30 seconds of so?
Like how much did this cost? #SNL #SNLFinale
