When this first aired, a graphic appeared over Herbert and Marion Sandler (played Darrell Hammond
and Casey Wilson
) saying "People who should be shot". After the real-life Sandlers complained to Lorne Michaels
, the sketch was temporarily removed from the show's official website. The sketch was later reposted but the graphic was deleted as was Hammond's line referencing "our corrupt activities". Michaels admitted in interviews that he was unaware that the Sandlers were real people when he approved the sketch. See more
About a minute into the cold open, Gwen Ifill (played by Queen Latifah) says that her new book "The Breakthrough" will come out on Inauguration Day. At the end of the cold open, she says the "the book drops November 4th", which is Election Day instead of Inauguration Day. See more
Gwen, we don't know if this climate-change-whosie-whatsit is man-made, or if it's just a natural part of the End of Days. But I'm not gonna talk about that; I would like to talk about taxes, because with Barack Obama, you're gonna be payin' higher taxes, but not with me and my fellow maverick. We are not afraid to get mavericky in there, and ruffle feathers, and not got to allow that, and also to the great Ronald Reagan...
