That's because it's the rare reality show that has actually produced some bona fide pop stars, hit-makers and even an Oscar winner.Whoever wins has a tough road getting there, and an even tougher climb up this ladder of the highest "Idol" alumni in album sales.In fact, the sketches often seem to struggle to surpass reality in terms of absurdity. Here’s a list of every Baldwin-as-Trump “SNL” sketch, ranked from least to most hilarious, with links to the sketches.The final sequence of Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” features a vindictive and petty Richard Nixon, on a recorded line, demanding of an underling that no Washington Post reporters be allowed in the White House ever again. In fact, the Washington Post began publishing its Pentagon Papers stories on June 18, 1971.Not that oil, Josh,” Rockwell said when Day’s character stared at the bottle of vegetable oil rather than the glass of water he had just mixed oil into. We’re in for at least (probably) two more years of Donald Trump as President of the United States.
On Wednesday night, Sean Hannity spent a portion of his show going after Jimmy Kimmel for what Kimmel said about Melania Trump on Monday. Nixon absolutely did tell his obsequious press secretary, Ron Ziegler, that “no reporter from the Washington Post is ever to be in the White House.” If the audio in the film isn’t the actual recording (which you can check out above), it’s a very fair and faithful re-creation.

Day and Strong, amusingly, improvised a solid reaction to the slip, looking like shocked kids whose teacher just said the f-word in class.The joke in the sketch was that the kids were extremely dumb and unable to follow the rudimentary science experiments Rockwell was doing, which led to some demonstrable frustration on the part of Rockwell’s character. Day put on an exaggerated shocked expression, while Strong plugged her ears.The experiment that inspired the f-bomb involved pouring vegetable oil into a glass of water and seeing what happened. While the curse was broadcast with no censorship in the New York broadcast, the f-bomb was censored in Los Angeles.Also Read: ' SNL': Bill Murray Debuts as Steve Bannon on ' Morning Joe' “Now watch the oil. That makes sense, given that “SNL” was broadcast live on both coasts — on the West Coast the slip occurred at p.m. „I think moving back to my home country/town is the only logical thing to do. But you’re away so often anyway so it won’t make much of a difference. Kimmel made fun of Melania’s performance reading to children at the White House’s Easter Egg Roll — specifically her pronunciation of “this and that,” which sounded more like “dees and dat.” “About dees and dat. ” Kimmel said to his sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez on Monday. And then I open my computer and find out I’m at war with Sean Hannity and Fox News.“You could be first lady of the United States.” On Wednesday, Hannity played that clip and referred to Kimmel as “a– clown Kimmel,” going off on a tirade about respect and how you shouldn’t make fun of the accent of an immigrant.
