The night’s first sketch opened in a dystopian New York City, where we learn that although some people blame the destruction of the U.S. on the government shutdown or Obamacare, it was really the 2013 Video Music Awards that crumbled the nation. Cue flashback. We then see Miley Cyrus prepping for the performance, joined by a concerned future version of herself (played by Vanessa Bayer), her performance partner Robin Thicke (played hilariously by Taran Killam — “Hey what’s up kid, you ready to start grabbing at my junk while I half-sing?”) and even, briefly, by Will Smith (played by Jay Pharoah). This sketch was a bit more lively than some of the more stale politically-themed cold opens, and started the episode off on a high note.
Okay when are they going to show Obama's smug happiness and Pelosi and Reid behavior on this topic? I keep seeing the Repubs waiting to talk and the Dem are just going on TV blaming the Reps. There is plenty of blame to go around. I hope these days are deducted from their pay.
And I can never figure out if being gay or gay sexual behaviour is such a good thing and to be rewarded why do they (SNL, Miley, etc) keep showing it like people who are doing it are doing a bad thing?
