‘Peyton Manning’ and ‘Cam Newton’ Sing ‘Ebony and Ivory’ on ‘SNL’

cam peyton
Kenan Thompson and Taran Killam, appearing as Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, joined forces the night before squaring off in Super Bowl 50 and sang “Ebony and Ivory” on this week’s broadcast of “Saturday Night Live.” The skit made fun of Manning for having a poor season, and made fun of the controversy surrounding Newton this year for being a “thug” despite appearing in commercials and on children television networks. Police then showed up and questioned “Cam” because he handed a large, brown gun to a kid, which was a nod to Newton handing touchdown footballs to children in the stands after his team scores a touchdown.

Krauthammer: Governors Were the Winners, Rubio ‘Really Hurt’ In Significant Way Against Christie

Screenshot
Columnist Charles Krauthammer said GOP presidential candidates Ohio Governor John Kasich, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie were the winners of Saturday’s GOP presidential debate, while Florida Senator Marco Rubio was “really hurt” by his exchange with Christie in a way that will impact the results of New Hampshire’s primary significantly and  “put something of a brake on his momentum” during the Fox News Channel’s coverage of the debate. Krauthammer said there was “not a lot of ambiguity” in the debate results, “The winners were the three governors for sure, the ones with most, way behind, who had to gain, particularly I thought Kasich, he made his case as perfectly pitched for New Hampshire, of the guy who can appeal to independents, to reach across the aisle, who’s a moderate, a bit like the Obama appeal of 2008. I thought he was the most effective. Bush had his best night, had a good night presenting his own case, but also he nailed Trump on the eminent domain, he took him on, number one, and second, I think that he really landed a blow. Although, as always, he didn’t quite have the knockout in the end. The third,

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made his “Saturday Night Live” debut this weekend, appearing in a skit with Larry David, who does a nice impersonation of the candidate. The two were on a boat that was on the way to New York and it was beginning to sink. Bernie said, “We need to unite and work together if we’re all going to get through this!” David’s character responded, “Sounds like socialism to me.” “Democratic Socialism,” Sanders corrected. David asked, “What’s the difference?” Sanders responded, “Huge difference.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Watch: ‘SNL’ Skit Shows Bernie Losing to Hillary in Close Race in ‘Seinfeld’-Style Shenanigans

bernie
“Seinfeld” co-creator and now-Bernie Sanders impersonator Larry David was the host for this week’s “Saturday Night Live” on NBC. David, as Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, appeared in a skit as the day of the Iowa caucus where he lost by two percent to Hillary Clinton, five voters, after he lost supporters for what was similar to situations seen in “Seinfeld.” He refused to shake a woman’s hand after she coughed into it, he only wanted to drink coffee with whole milk and not popping a supporter’s arm back in place while she was on the way to vote for him, saying, “I don’t pop. I’m not a popper.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

CNN: Cruz’s Iowa Behavior Had ‘Nothing To Do’ With Our Reporting, He’s Telling ‘Flat-Out Lie’

Screenshot
During its coverage of Saturday night’s GOP presidential debate, CNN criticized Republican presidential candidate Texas Senator Ted Cruz, saying “The Cruz campaign’s actions the night of the Iowa caucuses had nothing to do with CNN’s reporting” and that Cruz is flat-out lying when he claims CNN reported that GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson was dropping out of the race. After playing the exchange during that night’s debate between Cruz and Carson, anchor Erin Burnett read a statement from CNN that “What Senator Cruz said tonight in the debate is categorically false. CNN never corrected its reporting because CNN never had anything to correct. The Cruz campaign’s actions the night of the Iowa caucuses had nothing to do with CNN’s reporting. The fact Senator Cruz continues to knowingly mislead the voters about this is astonishing.” Burnett added, “What Ted Cruz says here is completely false.” Correspondent Tom Foreman then said, “Erin, at no time did CNN say that Ben Carson was dropping out of this race, not online, not on air, not anywhere. And for Ted Cruz to stand onstage, once again tonight, and suggest that CNN did is a flat-out lie. This is what was tweeted shortly before the caucuses

‘SNL’ Lampoons Ted Cruz in Mock Campaign Ad

killam
This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” on NBC opened with a mock campaign ad for GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, played by Tarran Killam, where he made fun of his all things Cruz. “I won the Iowa caucus, thanks to endorsements from strong conservatives like Glenn Beck and God Almighty. I’ll admit I’m an unconventional candidate, I’m not like other politicians. I didn’t get where I am today because I was born wealthy or handsome or charismatic or nice. I am not cool or likeable or even fine. I’m not young and hip. I am not off the chain. I’m not energetic and healthy. Physically, I’m not doing well at all. From the side I look like a Far Side cartoon,” he stated. In the faux ad, Killam as Cruz even noted the false reports spread by the Cruz campaign about fellow GOP candidate Dr. Ben Carson.
