Saturday Night Live’s skit on the Jussie Smollett story was … non-existent.

Seems as if the Smollett saga would be something that could easily be converted to comedy.
Can’t wait to see the Smollett SNL skit.

SNL should be able to make fun of everyone, literally everyone. but why did they dodge any jokes about Jussie Smollett? isn't he fair game? this story is bizarre & we should be able to laugh at everything. no fears of offending pic.twitter.com/rkNIjeueFq

Oh, but they had plenty of time to work in an Alec Baldwin mock-tastic Trump skit.

SNL can choose to use whatever subjects and stories they want for their comedy routines, but they need to remember these types of imbalances the next time they are pondering why they have experienced a drop in viewership.
