Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin, has made a career out of being outspoken and she recently had some pretty blunt things to say about Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey and more. While a lot of us love Tina Fey and Amy Poehler bringing back the political impressions they’ve done in the past for more recent SNL episodes, Bristol Palin is not one of them. In fact, she has some extremely negative things to say about how Saturday Night Live has treated Sarah Palin.
Saturday Night Live and Fey have been clinging to this impersonation a little too long. It’s getting pathetic. It’s been 7 years! Are they desperate for content? Or just desperate for viewers?
It is an election year, and it doesn't shock us that Tina Fey might want to dust off some older impressions. Following the release of the film Sisters, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live where they brought back their versions of Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton, respectively. The show’s back from winter break at this point and this week Tina Fey returned for a second time, this time appearing in the cold open as Sarah Palin endorsing Donald Trump (amusingly played by longtime impersonator and former cast member Darrell Hammond).
The comment came in the form of a blog post over on Patheos where Bristol Palin also got a little snippy about Saturday Night Live attempting to recreate her mom’s wardrobe for this weekend’s big SNL spoof. Those weren’t the boldest comments, however. She also took a shot at Tina Fey’s looks.
I may be biased, but I think my mom trumps her in the looks department. (Especially for having three more kids and seven more years on Tina!)
Bristol Palin’s been outspoken since she first came into the spotlight thanks to her mom’s bid for Vice President of the United States. In the time since, she’s been the star of her own reality show and made the news numerous times thanks to having problems with her first baby daddy. She's used to being in the news and having opinions, so it’s not shocking that she would say something so vociferously about the long-running late night program. Unfortunately, I’m guessing this means we won’t ever get to see Bristol Palin make fun of herself on the late night series, unlike her famous mother, who has popped up before.
You can catch new episodes of Saturday Night Live as part of NBC’s late night Saturday schedule. They start at 11:30 p.m. ET. In addition, you can check out what else the network has coming up with our midseason TV schedule.
