The SNL skit you didn’t see


It might have its moments, but for the most part, NBC’s Saturday Night Live is not very funny.

Which is why we’re confused SNL cut the skit of a C-SPAN spoof of confirmation hearings for Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s nominee for secretary of defense.

The skit pokes fun at Israel-lovers, where Hagel and Republicans one-up each other about who is more pro-Israel.

As the hearings go on, John McCain poses the question, “What if Benjamin Netanyahu calls and “he says to you, it is vital to Israel’s security, that you go on national television that night and perform oral sex on a donkey– would you do that for Israel?”

The skit was a dress rehearsal-only sketch, but lucky for us, Gothamist surfaced it in their roundup.
