Rob Schneider made a name for himself on "Saturday Night Live" from 1988 to 1994, but he believes the series is now "over," and it's all because of the show's response to Donald Trump's win over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election.
The comedian, who has conservative leanings, told The Blaze's Glenn Beck that comedy shows have been "indoctrinating" viewers with more liberal political ideology. He notes that he had a real issue with Kate McKinnon portraying Hillary and singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" after Trump's win was sealed.
"I hate to crap on my own show," he said of "SNL" during The Blaze chat. "When Hillary Clinton lost — which is understandable why she lost. She's not exactly the most logical person in the room. And then when Kate McKinnon went out there on 'Saturday Night Live' in the cold opening and all that, and she's dressed as Hillary Clinton, and she started playing 'Hallelujah.' I literally prayed, 'please have a joke at the end. Don't do this. Please don't go down there.' And there was no joke at the end, and I went, 'It's over. It's over. It's not gonna come back.'"
There was no joke at the end of the song, only Kate, as Hillary, telling viewers, "I'm not giving up, and neither should you." She then solemnly said, "And live from New York, it's Saturday Night."
The "Deuce Bigalow" star believes that late night shows like those hosted by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden are also doing similar things.
"You can take the comedic indoctrination process happening with each of the late night hosts and you can exchange them with each other," Rob said. "That's how you know they're not interesting anymore."
The actor has previously took umbrage with "SNL" casting Alec Baldwin to play Trump, too.
"I don't find his impression to be comical because, like I said, I know the way his politics lean, and it spoils any surprise," Rob said in 2018. "There's no possible surprise. He so clearly hates the man he's playing."
