Rob Schneider criticizes SNL for being "completely against Trump"

Schneider, who went from being a lifelong Democrat to a Republican in 2013 to recently becoming an independent, tells The New York Daily News: "The fun of Saturday Night Live was always you never knew which way they leaned politically. You kind of assumed they would lean more left and liberal, but now the cat's out of the bag they are completely against Trump, which I think makes it less interesting because you know the direction the piece is going." Schneider also criticized Alec Baldwin's portrayal of Trump, comparing it to Dana Carvey's Bush impression: "I don't find his impression to be comical," he says. "Because, like I said, I know the way his politics lean and it spoils any surprise. There's no possible surprise. He so clearly hates the man he's playing ... Carvey played it respectfully. To me, the genius of Dana Carvey was Dana always had empathy for the people he played, and Alec Baldwin has nothing but a fuming, seething anger toward the person he plays."
