|Update: A “Saturday Night Live” skit that skewered President Bush, Democrats, homebuyers and subprime lenders for their roles in the mortgage meltdown was removed from the program’s website because it “didn’t meet out standards,” a spokesman for the show said Tuesday. An edited version of the skit will be re-posted online soon, the spokesman said.|
The outrageous skit ridiculed a list of influential people including President George Bush, multi-billionaire George Soros, Herb and Marion Sandler (SNL suggests this couple made billions off the subprime boom), Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, and Representative Barney Frank.
In the skit, George Soros tells President Bush: “You are not to speak. I don’t like you!”
The skit also explains in humourous fashion where the $700 billion dollars went!
