hey. Doc Hastings made Saturday Night Live. Kind of.

Well, this is weird.  It’s a Saturday Night Live parody.  From last May.  On the Benghazi Hearings.  Tell me what’s wrong with this picture.

Representatives Doc Hastings, Daniel Issa and Trey Gowdy (Keenan Thompson, Bill Hader and Taran Killam) oversee the hearings. Issa first expresses disdain that the (liberal) media, with the exception of FOX news, has largely overlooked the importance of the hearings.
The first witness is Jodi Arias (Nasim Fedrad). Rep. Hastings opines that she’s been brought in as a ploy to increase ratings. Rep. Issa says his comments are hurtful, adding “Do you have any idea how hard it was to book her, especially this week?” Rep. Gowdy asks her if she knows what happened at Bhenghazi, and of course she has no idea. Rep. Hastings asks, “What’s next? The guy from Cleveland who kept all those women in his basement?” Sure enough, it’s Ariel Castro (Bobby Moynihan).

No, that does not sound like Doc Hastings.  Being a Republican and all that.


 We can watch the clip here.

… That is … um… Doc Hastings, sitting on the left.   Played by  Kenan Thompson.  The … um… black man.

He’s actually playing  Elijah E. Cummings, apparently.

… Did anyone notice?  Other than Representative Hastings?

… Probably just honored someone noticed him.

As always the comedy comes piling in on this facebook page.  Reagan… “Freedom just a generation away” quote; “Please Impeach Obama”…  AND…

SNL’s error may be more of a service than you know. This will get picked up now..

It’s been 3 months.  No one noticed then; nobody notices now.  Even though “Saturday Night Live” and “SNL” are instant google phrases when you put in “Doc Hastings”.  Nobody thinks Doc Hastings is a black man.  Sorry.
