Pete Davidson Roasted Kanye's SNL Rant
Pete Davidson criticised Kanye West’s pro-Trump rant last week as “one of the worst, most awkward moments” on 'Saturday Night Live'.
The comedian explained on Saturday Night Live's 'Weekend Update' segment what happened when Kanye began talking about his support the US president.
"Speaking strictly for myself, what Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I've ever seen here," said Davidson.
"And I’ve seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern,” he added.
Davidson said that the SNL cast and musicians were placed uncomfortably behind the rapper as he went off on the tangent.
"We all had to stand behind him," said Davidson, pointing himself out in the footage from last week.
Davidson -- who has spoken openly about his own mental illness -- noted that there's "no shame in the medicine game".
"There’s nothing wrong with taking them!" Davidson said of seeking medication.
"Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass. I’m quoting my therapist, my mom, and my mailman.”
The comedian went on to analyse Kanye's speech in which the rapper claimed that, "Democrats broke up black families with welfare, and slavery's not real".
"You know how wrong you have to be about politics for me to notice?" Davidson asked.
Davidson added that Kanye wore his 'MAGA hat' all week to SNL rehearsals but nobody "bullied him" despite the rapper's claims.
"I wish someone bullied me into not wearing this hat," said Davidson, poking fun at a purple bucket hat he wore in a photo with fiancée Ariana Grande.
