Saturday Night Live has surged in the ratings in recent times by attacking President Donald Trump but on occasion they hit Democrats.
They did that this Saturday when they mocked the CNN LGBT Equality Town Hall and the ridiculous way the candidates behaved.
It started with Sen. Cory Booker, played by Chris Redd, who was asked by a member of the audience if he always supported the LGBTQ community.
“Absolutely, yes. I have nothing but respect since day one,” he said until the audience member mentioned an op ed he wrote in 1992 that was derogatory toward the LGBTQ community.
Booker avoided the question and left the stage.
In the op ed Booker said that he was “disgusted by gays” and “hated gays.” He said that the ‘”hought of two men kissing each other was about as appealing as a frontal lobotomy.”
There were a parade of other characters who were introduced and who gave hilarious answers, but the show was stolen by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, played by Kate McKinnon.
“’I’m so excited to be here, Anderson,” she said to the actor playing CNN host Anderson Cooper as she took to the stage.

“I had some apple slices backstage and they are hitting me like cocaine!” she said. “You all know I’m not a lesbian, but all the ingredients are there!”
She was asked by a member of the audience how she would respond to a person who believes that marriages is between one man and one woman.
“’I would say, sir, tell me your bus stop, because I want to know where you get off,” she said to applause from the crowd.
“If someone doesn’t want to serve gay people at their small business, I bet that’s not the only thing that’s small,” she said.
“And when people say gay and trans people shouldn’t be included in Civil Rights Act protections, I wished their parents had used protection,” she said.
She then took off her wig, an homage to Sasha Velour who won RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2017, as roses fell from her wig.
Another fantastic performance came from Lin Manuel Miranda who played longshot candidate Rep. Julian Castro.
“As a Democrat, I want to apologize for not being gay,” the actor said. “But I promise to do better in the future.”
The skit ends with former Vice President Joe Biden, played by Woody Harleson, who starts by getting too close to Cooper.
“The vast majority of people in America are not homophobic. They’re just scared of gay people,” he said to start his speech.
“Look, you know me. I went to bat for marriage equality and I believe we’re all equal, whether you’re gay, lesby, transgenital, or queef. You’re okay with Joe,” he said.
