Hero Republican ‘TBD’ Saves the World from Donald Trump ‘TBD’ SNL Sketch

SNL’s first skit with actress Octavia Spencer opened with a joke about action movies and a Republican hero simply known as “TBD”

“It was country in chaos, a nation divided,” intoned a stern narrator. “Led by a president with unchecked power.”

The gag was a none too subtle jab as Congressional Republicans who have largely cowered to the new president and his ferocious Twitter account.

“The AV Club calls it a touching tribute to whoever it ends up being about and Rolling Stone says, it’s definitely not about Paul Ryan.”

“Courage Compassion Country … The TBD Story.”
