If you thought watching “Saturday Night Live” comedian Kate McKinnon sing a tribute to failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after she lost to President Donald Trump in the 2016 election two years ago was disturbing, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Fast forward ahead by two years to Saturday, Dec. 1, when the female cast members of the show sang an anti-Trump song seething with clinical-grade Trump Derangement Syndrome.
A parody of Mariah Carey’s classic song “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” the song by the cast members was basically a plea for special counselor Robert Mueller to complete his widely criticized investigation into Russian collusion and indict somebody, preferably the president’s son.
“This needs to be done by Christmas, I need a frickin’ ounce of cheer, I just really want my life back, oh my God, it’s been two years,” the virulently anti-Trump actresses sang. I don’t need a full impeachment, but we just need a little fun, please just tell us we aren’t crazy, at least indict his oldest son.”
Watch a recording of the performance below:
“We won’t ask for much this Christmas, but at least throw us a bone, tell us what the hell is happening, and who the F is Roger Stone?” they continued. “We don’t need a long-ass dock, just a single payback stock, Mueller please come through because the only option is a coup.”
Whether or not this performance was as cringe-worthy and disturbing as McKinnon’s performance two years ago is something for you to decide.
During that performance, the SNL cast member sang Leonard Cohen’s classic “Hallelujah” while dressed like Clinton in a tribute to the defeated failed Democrat presidential nominee.
While this performance creeped out most conservatives, it resonated with devastated liberals.
“The subdued, slightly somber note hit a chord for Democratic viewers (the YouTube video has had more than six million views since Saturday) who remain reeling after Trump’s win,” The Christian Science Monitor reported at the time.
“In the immediate days after the election, protests and riots sparked around the nation with vows to march on Washington following Trump’s inauguration.”
The reactions to SNL’s latest stunt seem to be similar.
Below are tweets from liberals ecstatic over the song:
I love these women.

And below are tweets from conservatives who think the song is the dumbest thing they’ve ever heard in their life:
This is the single saddest dumbest most pathetic attempt to stir up public opinion I have ever seen. What’s happening to American entertainment?? ?

@nbcsnl How’s about making the show funny and not an anti-Trump Show? It’s boring, unfunny, and quite pathetic. Alienating half of your audience is crazy. Fire Lorne Michaels or go back to non-political formats.
