The recent “Saturday Night Live” cold opening parodied a congressional hearing involving college presidents, but faced criticism for focusing more on mocking Rep. Elise Stefanik than the controversial testimony of the university leaders.

Many felt the sketch missed the mark and downplayed the serious issue of rising antisemitism on college campuses.

The skit drew backlash from various individuals, including former “The View” co-host Meghan McCain and digital strategist Greg Price. (Trending: Top Democrat Loses In Historic Landslide)

The original hearing featured Harvard, UPenn, and MIT presidents testifying about antisemitism, with criticism directed at their responses to questions about calls for the genocide of Jews on campus.

This led to public condemnation and resignations from university officials.

“I am here today because hate speech has no place on college campuses. Hate speech belongs in Congress, on Elon Musk’s Twitter, in private dinners with my donors and in public speeches by my work husband Donald Trump,” cast member Chloe Troast’s Stefanik said in the skit.

“Unwatchable,” the Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller said.

Fox News contributor Guy Benson posted, “If you’re gonna rush to protect the tribe with comedy at least be even a tiny bit funny.”

“The fake laughter is as painful as the skit,” journalist Ian Miles Cheong commented.
