One significant barometer of SNL’s success this past Saturday night was the fierce and hysterical reaction by angry Twitter liberals who were appalled that the network would have the audacity to go after the last Democrat-led anti-Trump charade. One user was upset that the show focused on the moment Pelosi and Schumer were heard asking for assistance as Jan. 6 protesters breached the Capitol building.

“It’s really offensive for SNL to be doing a skit making fun of Pelosi & Schumer in the video from January 6th,” a Twitter user added. Another user was upset that the show poked fun at high-profile Democrats instead of mocking Georgia Republican U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker over his police badge stunt Friday during his debate with Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock.
you could definitely lampoon both Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, but using the recent footage of them reacting and attempting to secure assistance while people are being killed, is not one of those times#SNL https://t.co/KAFZDRDrdB— Culture of Truth (@Bobblespeak) October 16, 2022
Finally, another enraged Twitter user wrote, “@SNL @nbcsnl Skit done in very bad taste. Our country and democracy, officers of our government died because our President committed crimes against its citizens. Thank God for 82 yr old Nancy Pelosi for taking a leadership role. Do you know McConnell sought her out to lead?” To the casual observer, it appears as if SNL’s brutal mocking of the Jan. 6 committee was intentional in the sense that the show’s leaders might believe and be frustrated by the fact that — like many other pundits believe — the committee didn’t subpoena the former president at the outset. Instead, the committee held what amounted to a theatrical vote at the conclusion of what likely will be the group’s final hearing. Whatever the reason, as long as “SNL” keeps mining the other side of the aisle for bits of political comedy gold, it might eventually see the uptick in ratings that it presumably so desperately wants.

We can laugh at ourselves and be self depreciating at times, but it’s an epic failure for #SNL to make fun of J6 esp Pelosi trying to save the country from the Insurrection. A missed opportunity to not open with Herschel Walker police badge clownery.— KAMALA NATION (@KamalaNation) October 15, 2022
