SNL mocks Candace Owens and Laura Ingraham. Thick-skinned ladies’ responses funnier than skits.

“Saturday Night Live” decided to mock Laura Ingraham and Candace Owens over the weekend, but the two ladies aren’t taking it sitting down.

Owens, played by Ego Nwodim, and Ingraham, played by Kate McKinnon, effectively framed Republicans as racists and expected that was enough to make the audience laugh.

Owens, on the other hand, was not impressed by the woman chosen to play her on the show, and decided to let everyone know it.

“Hey @nbcsnl —not sure who this woman is you have playing me but I am much better looking than this. 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 tweeted.

You can watch the cold open here:

“My next guest is here to address the voting rights bill, which would make it easier to vote for minorities and harder for white people in Florida to vote twice,” said McKinnon posing as Ingraham. “Please welcome my one black friend Candace Owens.”

“Martin Luther King would have voted for Trump,” said “Owens”. “Laura, liberals try to make everything about race. To quote the only words 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 that said, ‘Great job, gang, racism over.’”

It was clear their intention was to minimize the importance and impact of conservatives of color, in lieu of actual humor.

That didn’t sit particularly well with Ingraham either, who took to her own show to do an impression of Kate McKinnon, doing an impression of her, though she had nothing but nice things to say about the actress herself.
