‘Saturday Night Live’ searches for Republican hero with mock movie trailer


“Saturday Night Live” used a mock action movie trailer during its latest show to ask which Republican will step forward and speak out against President Trump.

“It was a country in chaos,” the narrator says over news clips of White House protests, bomb threats at Jewish community centers and the immigration debate. “A nation divided.”

“And Rolling Stone says it’s definitely not about Paul Ryan,” the trailer adds in a reference to the Speaker.

You can watch the mock trailer in the video player above.
