Tina Fey returns to “SNL” to brilliantly parody Sarah Palin’s Trump endorsement

By WITW Staff on January 25, 2016

If there’s one undeniable advantage to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump, it’s that we once again got to bask in the glory of Tina Fey’s impersonation of the 2008 vice-presidential nominee. Fey returned to Saturday Night Live to parody Palin’s speech to an Iowa rally last Tuesday, donning the same spiky, sparkling jacket, and rhyming and rambling her way through the address — uncannily similar to the former Alaska governor’s: “I’m here for all you teachers and teamsters, you farmers and charmers, whether you’re a mom or Two Broke Girls or Three Men and a Baby, or a rockin’ roller, holy roller, pushing stroller, pro bowler with an abscessed molar….,” said the wildly gesturing “Palin.”

The show also got a subtle dig in at the fact that Palin later that week appeared to blame her son’s arrest for domestic violence on President Obama, when Fey said, “We’ve seen our children targeted by the police for no reason other than that they’ve committed some crimes.”

Throughout the sketch, Donald Trump as played by Darrell Hammond stands by her side, smiling and nodding in approval and offering his own assessment (“She sounds like a greeting card from a Chinese dollar store”). At the end, however, Fey-as-Palin reveals why the endorsement actually happened: Donald promised her a place in his cabinet: “I belong in a cabinet! Cause I’m full of spice and got a great rack.” As always, Fey’s pitch-perfect parody has to be seen to be believed. Watch it below:
