PoliticsNation gets the Saturday Night Live treatment


Kenan Thompson and the gang at Saturday Night Live took a moment to poke fun at PoliticsNation with Rev. Al Sharpton on Saturday’s show. 

Thompson, who’s played Sharpton in a handful of SNL sketches, acknowledged Sharpton’s considerable weight loss in the last few years, cracking an in-character joke about retaining water. 

Host Paul Rudd also joined the skit, playing a Huffington Post contributor riffing on the challenges with the new federal health care site.

The fictional Sharpton remarked that he avoids buying health insurance, instead selling one of his one-time trademark tracksuits to help offset the costs of any medical bills that might arise.
