Cross over moment

I enjoyed this evening’s Saturday Night sketch inspired by the third and final presidential debate. Yet I found it dissatisfying for the oddest reason.

The reality had become so bizarre that there was pretty much nothing SNL could do to effectively parody it. Not that they didn’t try.

But what happens when an actual candidate for president says things of his opponent like “Such a nasty woman”, and won’t even agree to accept the outcome of the election? That’s an entirely new level of pitch black political gallows humor.

And that’s the moment when the reality crosses over and exceeds the parody. You just can’t top stuff like that.
