Just watched SNL opening and their send up of that crazy lady witness with Rudy in Michigan....

....a women named Melissa Carone, was absolutely pitch perfect. Cicily Strong could not have been more perfect, not since Tina Fey did Sarah Palin was a character done so well.

1. I just don't see how you could improve on the original...

But that is just me and I did not see the opening...so...I'll have to do with the original, which is fucking hilarious.

3. Yea, it seems evolution has accelerated and we have evolved from Karen to Carone...

History will not be kind to Melissa Carone.

4. She looks and talks like my ex-wife's friend...

... who was a beautician working at the same hair and nail salon. My ex-wife said she was her best and most loyal friend, but later she totally freaked out at me for letting that woman inside our home to await my spouse's return from a store. As soon as that woman left, my wife screamed that her best friend was a "whore" and I'd better never be alone with her ever again! Lol.

Anyway, I bet that airhead woman could've done just as well with the blind accusations.

Who Is Melissa Carone?
https://www.insideedition.com/who-is-melissa-carone-trumps-star-witness-in-michigan-compared-to-snl-character-after-feisty-63557

-----
The 33-year-old single mom is an aspiring actress and model, and a computer specialist who was hired to troubleshoot the ballot machines on election night.

Also raising eyebrows is the fact that Carone was charged in 2018 with obscenity for allegedly emailing sexually explicit video to her boyfriend's ex. She pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, which was dismissed after she served probation.

6. I think that Carone was doing Cicily Strong

Someone here posted a comparison with Strong’s “girl you don’t want to talk to at a party” weekend update character. Doppelgänger!

9. She even got the weird pronunciation of threa- - ened.

That's how the witness pronounce threatened - a weird hiatus instead of a 't'.

11. I think Strong revised her old character:

"The Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started A Conversation With At A Party." The voice and mannerisms were the same.

15. Yes, I think you're correct.



I was half-expecting a video of her Gemma character after I mentioned "Cockney", but I'm not sure what English accent she was supposedly imitating in those sketches.


She's been a "gemma" for SNL! So many funny characters!

21. There are several places in the u.s. that have that swallowed 't'

Trenton, nj and the old l.a. "valley girl" accents come to mind.

But when real life becomes the perfect parody it’s difficult to improve.

Throw in the Rudy farts and it can’t become a funny parody.

20. It's easy to be a critic I reckon

But yeah, it was flat, stilted and the timing was off. Poor direction

The drunk lady stole the show tho, perfect pitch there

What's her name McKinnon? She overdoes parodies. Her attempts at Jeff Sessions were hard to watch for overacting

24. She Was Hired To Troubleshoot...

...machines on election night.
By whom? For what purpose?
Why would one need a troubleshooter on site during the count? A balky machine then, would not impede anybody's voting rights. Why wouldn't it wait until an on-call person got there?
There's sketchy background in her claims on computer expertise, so is that even true?
Or was she a plant the entire time?
Then, she puts on that crazed performance, and she's an aspiring actress? Hmmmmm!

That's going to follow him for the rest of his life.

Geez, he's disgusting.
