Television’s weekly tradition Saturday Night Live could find itself with renewed relevance (and comedic might) in the wake of a Donald Trump presidency.
Although decidedly partial to the left, sketches like last Saturday’s “The Bubble” skewer NYC liberals for their “free-thinking like-mindedness” which are actually exclusionary beliefs masquerading as progressivism.
But you don’t have to move to Brooklyn to get in on the action: Most of us already live in our own bubble in some form or another.
