With the many disasters of President Joe Biden’s administration, you would think the sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live” would have a ton of material to mock, but the show appears to prefer attacking conservatives.
And they did that again on the most recent show by racially attacking black conservative woman Candace Owens.
You can imagine the criticism the show would have had if it mocked a black, liberal woman.
But now Owens is hitting back at the show for its portrayal of her.
Comedian Kate McKinnon played Fox News host Laura Ingraham and brought on several guests. The first was Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who was portrayed by Aidy Bryant.
Bryant, playing Sen. Cruz, apologized for the comments he made calling the participants on Jan. 6 terrorists and said, “I never should have called them terrorists.”
“The truth is, they are big burly men with big d energy, I like ’em a lot. They’re my cool friends,” she said.
The next guest was Pete Davidson playing Novak Djokivic, the tennis player who was booted from The Australian Open for not being vaccinated against COVID-19
“People love to tear you off your pedestal just because you’re really rich, or you’re the best at tennis, or you go to a charity event with 200 kids even though you’re dripping with COVID,” he said.
“But in my heart, I know that one day people will look back on this moment in history and think, ‘who cares?’” he said.
The next guess was Candace Owens, played by Ego Nwodim who McKinnon introduced as my one black friend.”
“Martin Luther King would have voted for Trump,” Nwodim said. “Laura, liberals try to make everything about race. To quote the only words that Martin Luther King ever said, ‘I have a dream.’
“That’s it, end of quote. Nothing about money, or jobs or schools, unless you count his tombstone, which says, ‘Great job gang, racism over,’” she said.
“You know, it’s my greatest honor to continue to fight for African-Americans, no matter how many times they ask me to stop,” she said, as if every black person in the United States is a Democrat.
But Owens had a hilarious response to the sketch comedy show.
“Hey @nbcsnl —not sure who this woman is you have playing me but I am much better looking than this,” she said. “Next time just reach out and I’ll play myself. That way the skit will actually be funny and America might even tune in to the show again!”

Owens has some of the greatest comments when it comes to attacking liberals, as he did at the start of the new year with New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, after she suggested that Republicans attack her because they have “deranged sexual frustrations” and need “therapy.”
“If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet. Ya creepy weirdos,” she said in response to a tweet from former advisor to President Donald Trump, Steve Cortes.

Owens appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show where the host could barely stop himself from laughing at the idea.
“Listen, I saw this and I actually couldn’t believe my eyes and I tried to create a sober analysis of what made her tweet that, and by the way, it got worse,” she said. “She had a second tweet that said there are sexual frustrations that underpin Republicans’ critiques of me, their fixation on me, so she’s really actually creating a sexual narrative.”
Considering that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet came around the New Year’s holiday Owens speculated that the representative might have been drunk when she sent that tweet.
“I think alcohol loosens your inhibitions and I think that she was about ten margaritas deep in Miami enjoying the free state of Florida and she wrote something that was honestly just filth,” she said. “I mean, how bizarre and immature is it for any person, any person that wants to be taken seriously as an adult, to look at a fair critique of them as an elected official who has been barking about how Florida is doing every thing wrong, how that Ron DeSantis is, to see this critique it off her back well, you know what, you just want to sleep with me.”
She went on to assert that she is not sexually attracted to the 32-year-old representative.
“It’s so bratty and so immature and it’s so disgusting to even think about. And let me just say in case there’s any confusion,” she said. “I have a lot of critiques of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, I’ve had a lot of critiques since the very beginning. No, Sandy, I do not want to sleep with you.”
