Mitt Romney Drowns Election Woes In Milk On ‘SNL’ [Video]

Mitt Romney was angry after he lost the 2012 presidential election. He was so angry that he cracked open a fresh carton of milk to help ease the pain.

During the cold opening on Saturday Night Live last night Jason Sudeikis and the rest of the cast said goodbye to the GOP candidate.

Sudeikis, who stayed at SNL for an extra season in order to play Mitt Romney during the presidential election, stands out on a balcony and contemplates life after the election.

Romney says:

“There are so many things I want to do and see. I want to know how mayonnaise is made. Because I really like mayonnaise.”

The skit pokes fun at Romney’s Mormon roots, how his sons all look alike, and Karl Rove’s denial over the 2012 election results. Rove donated millions to the Romney campaign and vehemently denied the election results while on air on Fox News.

Rove says:

“I still think you can win Ohio … Now this might not be the best time. But can I borrow $3 million?”

Here’s the video of SNL mocking Romney’s defeat.

Did you think the skit was funny?

The spotlight on Mitt Romney will dim in the coming weeks and it’s likely that last night was his last appearance on Saturday Night Live. So now, with the election over and the character retired, there’s one question on the mind of SNL fans: Will Jason Sudeikis say goodbye at the end of this season?

    Thanks for the post, Dan. I couldn't watch the show last night, because I was stuck working late in my office at DISH. I really wanted to see Anne Hathaway's third appearance, but I wasn't worried about missing the show because it's available at DISHOnline.com the next day. I just got finished with the episode, and I was a little disappointed. For the first episode after a long, heated election, I expected more from the SNL crew. The cold open was a little funny, but it wasn't the laugh I wanted to end this election cycle with. I guess that's what Colbert and the Daily Show are for.
