Members of “Saturday Night Live’s” audience have come to expect certain things from the long-running show.
And it’s not always laughter.
“SNL” is now part of the Democratic propaganda machine. Just watch this week’s “cold open” which skewers the president who visited East Palestine, Ohio following a chemical cloud crisis, not the one who couldn’t t be bothered to even speak to the town’s Mayor.
Q: “Has [Biden] spoken to the mayor of East Palestine? Does he have any plans to?”

The propaganda is that thick and unrelenting. And it’s been that way since President Barack Obama took the oath of office in 2009.
The Trump years poured kerosene on that partisan fire. Now, the show bends over backward to avoid mocking President Joe Biden.
Enter Woody Harrelson. The star of the March 10 release “Champions” hosted “SNL” for the fifth time last night, and he used his monologue time to shred Big Pharma … and everyone who did its bidding.
It’s amazing “SNL” brass let Harrelson uncork his monologue, his way. His rant indirectly targeted the show, NBC and its fawning coverage of the government’s COVID-19 regulations.
The inadvertent target? The “SNL” audience.
The monologue began with Harrelson discussing his copious weed intake, his previous “SNL” hosting gigs and other random items. He slowly found his way to the monologue’s point, and it’s a doozy. He recalled reading a crazy script circa 2019.

“The movie goes like this: The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force allllll the people in the world to stay locked in their homes and people can only come out if they take the cartels’ drugs and keep taking them over and over.
“I threw the script away. I mean, who was gonna believe this crazy idea?”
Hollywood and Comedy, Inc. have mostly avoided Big Pharma over the last few years despite the industry’s curious behavior. “SNL” certainly has.
In fact, the show has propped up Dr. Anthony Fauci on many occasions as he pushed the lockdown rhetoric, vaccine mandates and other parts of Harrelson’s “Cartel” machinations.
The most interesting part?
The audience, which Harrelson had in his hip pocket for the first two-thirds of the monologue, went stone silent during the peak of his anti-Big Pharma screed.
Crickets. No laughs. No boos. You can’t hear much of anything from the normally boisterous New York crowd.
This was likely the first time someone they like and respect, a liberal Hollywood actor, laid down some hard truths for them.
And they didn’t know what to say.
“SNL” remains a far-Left institution, incapable of speaking truth to power if it interferes with the DNC agenda.
Harrelson, the pot-smoking, socialist-leaning actor, allowed a glimmer of real satire to emerge for 27 glorious seconds.
