Conservative radio host and CNN contributor Scottie Nell Hughes responded on Sunday to a spoof from sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live” that skewered her as a “nutjob.”
“You know, I have a great sense of humor. My mother loved it — she thought it was the funniest thing; she’s gonna watch it every morning,” Hughes told CNN, adding that “it was an honor” to be played by cast member Cecily Strong.
She also thought the skit, which brutally mocked a recent interview she had with CNN, had sexist overtones.
“Talk about the ultimate shaming, the ultimate sexism,” Hughes said. “What does SNL want me to do, be barefoot and pregnant or maybe just talk about parenting issues?”
She was also hurt by the sketch, she told The Blaze, particularly for some of the responses on social media.
“I’m a little shaken after this,” Hughes said. “I had no idea this was coming.”
“Those who know me know that I’m actually a very insecure person. I read every tweet,” she added, noting that “tears have been shed.”
Perhaps the hardest part was when her daughter asked her why people were calling her crazy.
“I had to explain that mean people and bullying doesn’t stop in elementary school. It continues throughout your life,” she told The Blaze.
She said what hurt her more than anything else were the attacks levied against her by fellow conservatives.
“I’ve always been in the conservative movement,” she told the Blaze. “I feel like we’re all a part of the same family and our family is currently divided.”
