Comedian Rob Schneider spoke out on what happened to Saturday Night Live in a recent interview.
During the interview Schneider said he knew it was “over” for SNL after their Post-2016 election segment featuring Kate McKinnon dressed as Hillary Clinton.
Rob Schneider is a comedy legend, with a career spanning “Saturday Night Live,” films like “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo” and “The Benchwarmers,” and a stand-up act that’s still going strong. But perhaps one of the most courageous things he’s ever done was admitting to the world that he’s not a woke leftist.
Schneider joined “The Glenn Beck Podcast” to tell his story, including how listening to Glenn helped him go from a Hollywood liberal to a conservative who would rather be ostracized than stay silent. He also detailed the sad state of comedy in the woke era, how SNL changed since he left, and the moment he knew his “old show” was officially “over.”
“I hate to crap on my old show,” Schneider told Glenn.
“But when I saw, when Hillary Clinton lost … and then when Kate McKinnon went out there on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ on a cold opening … dressed as Hillary Clinton, and she starts playing ‘Hallelujah,’ I literally prayed, please have a joke at the end. Don’t do this. Please don’t go down there. And there was no joke at the end, and I went, it’s over. It’s over. It’s not gonna come back.”
