Saturday Night Live fans tend to think the show was at the top of its game during their childhood years. But SNL alumnus Rob Schneider is doubling down on that argument, saying it isn’t even a comedy show anymore.

In a Saturday interview on The Glenn Beck Podcast, Schneider cited the specific moment he believes SNL jumped the shark. It was when cast member Kate McKinnon gave a solo performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” shortly after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election in November 2016.

Schneider said: “I hate to crap on my own show, but when Hillary Clinton lost — which is understandable that she would lose; not exactly the most likable person in the room, right — and then when Kate McKinnon went up there on Saturday Night Live in the cold opening, she started — dressed as Hillary Clinton — 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 not going to come back.’”

Rob Schneider then said he believes late-night TV hosts are “indoctrinating” their audiences and that there “isn’t an independent voice anymore. It’s all indoctrination by comedic imposition.” He previously criticized CNN on Twitter for “biased, fake, lies, distortions, fake sources, & a blackmailer.”

Schneider remarked to Beck that he doesn’t “indoctrinate people, like some comedy shows seem to be doing these days.”

  1. It sure as hell wasn’t funny when he sat there repeating “makin’ copies” for seven minutes straight. He was awful!! And Kate sang Hallelujah because Leonard Cohen had just died, you anti vax, talentless boob.

  2. Personally, I see his point: NOT that this or that party is better/ worse, but that TRUE comedy pokes fun at EVERYONE and EVERYTHING.. THAT is what’s great about our country: you can criticize WHOEVER is in office, and not be taken away by the state police to never be heard from again.. 🤣I hope members of both parties can learn to not take themselves so seriously anymore..
