Now that Trump has left the building, Saturday Night Live has once again returned to making humorous sketches. One from Saturday’s episode is a genius skit about a young Ben Carson, as dictated by his own writings and speeches.
Highlights from the sketch include:
- An attempted stabbing thwarted by a pesky belt buckle; “oh man, blocked by a belt buckle. This happens all the time.”
- A tongue-lashing by Carson’s mom about the threat of prison; “I can’t go to prison mama, people go to prison straight and come out gay.”
- Black Jesus comes to visit and tells Ben that he created humans to be the most evolved creatures; “but evolution isn’t real or we’d have the fossils to prove it.”
