NBC is confirming reports that Saturday Night Live scrapped an opening sketch taking a poke at President Obama for politicizing Osama bin Laden’s death on the one-year anniversary. Instead, the show opened with a skit mocking Fox New Channel’s morning show “Fox & Friends.”
The show’s executive producer insists SNL has no hidden motive, saying the show just couldn’t fit everything in and the President Obama impersonation simply didn’t make the cut.
So what do you think? Take a look at script of the cut sketch below and sound off!
