Mike Pence Gets a 'Gay Ginsburn' from The Notorious RBG

gay ginsburn

Saturday Night Live was exceptional this week. From Kate McKinnon's heartfelt cold open to Dave Chappelle's brilliant monologue (not to mention some cameos from past Chappelle's Show faves, OKAAAAAAAY!!!), but one of SNL's most cathartic moments was McKinnon as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, going to town on homophobic future Vice President Mike Pence.

The 83-year-old Ginsburg is one of our few remaining hopes on the Supreme Court (shout-out to Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan...and occasionally John Roberts) and McKinnon's feisty RBG is ready to throw down because she's not going anywhere.

"The bench is now my porch," she tells "Weekend Update" co-host Colin Jost. "I'm gonna sit on it all day and yell, 'No! Get out of my yard!'"

While zinging Colin Kaepernick for not voting and Rudy Giuliani for being a sentient sidewalk turd, RBG saved up most of her ire for Mike Pence, or as she calls him, "The 'Gay People Can't Get a Pizza' Guy."

Ginsburg clocks Pence for looking like the closet-case neighbor who kisses Kevin Spacey in American Beauty. You know, Colonel Fitts.

Receipt.

And then Ginsburg opens the Library of Congress to read Pence like the pro-conversion therapy (and generally anti-LGBT) RNC platform.
