SNL Ribs Bloomberg & Christie's "Sandy" Politics
Finding humor in the hometown devastation, Saturday Night Live poked fun at New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on the latest show (November 3).
In the show's opening, the mayor (played by Fred Armisen) gave a press conference to thank those who helped in the Hurricane Sandy recovery. At his side was his now-famous sign language interpreter who added "pizzazz to what would have been and otherwise dour occasion."
That pizzazz included hilarious signs for firefighters and policemen, as well as pulling out her ears for President Obama's sign.
Next up was Governor Christie, played by Bobby Moynihan, who had a translator of his own. The big-haired interpreter helped Jersey natives understand the speech. Watch the very funny full sketch below.
