SNL: Scarlett Johansson's dog is a surprise Trump supporter
Dog is a Trump’s best friend, apparently: In a sketch from this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, one canine is revealed to be a passionate supporter of the current president despite his human parent’s objections.
The sketch sees a team of scientists debuting technology that translates a pet’s thoughts into words with Scarlett Johansson’s character, Helen, using her dog, Max, as the example. At first, he lists off inoffensive things he likes — the bird outside the window, parks, etc. Then he surprises everyone.
“I like Trump. He’s my man,” he proclaims.
Helen says it might be a translation error, but, nope. “He carried the electoral college fair and square,” Max says before going on to defend Trump in a variety of ways. For example, when Helen asks her dog if he cares about a woman’s right to choose, Max retorts: “You didn’t afford me a choice when you cut off my balls.” Turns out the secret life of pets is… very bitter.
Watch the whole sketch — which ends with Helen plopping a pussy hat on Max’s head — above.
