In the following SNL video “cold open” sketch mocking Donald Trump, the SNL cast joked about Mr. Trump reversing his positions on many different campaign promises after becoming President-elect Trump. The SNL clip, which was criticized by Mr. Trump himself on Twitter and called not funny, as reported by the Inquisitr, portrayed Trump asking Siri for information about ISIS. It also showed Trump backing down on repealing Obamacare, asking Mike Pence to do everything, acting afraid when a coal miner needed a job, reeling at the cost of a 2,000-plus miles long wall separating Mexico from the U.S. and more. That “more” was Mr. Trump deciding not to put Hillary Clinton in jail, which is a fact that appears to be coming true on Tuesday, November 22.
According to ABC 7, Trump’s top adviser, Kellyanne Conway, who was also portrayed as a much put-on woman in the above SNL sketch, told MSNBC that Trump indeed would not follow through on attempting to investigate Clinton’s email scandal.
“He doesn’t wish to pursue these charges.”
Whereas on the campaign trail and in presidential debates, controversy about investigations into Hillary’s private server represented a large portion of the rhetoric issued by Trump and Trump supporters, on Tuesday reports that Trump instead wants to help Clinton “heal” by not pursuing the federal probe surfaced.
Trump wants to set a new tone for congressional Republicans by letting go of the email server controversy.
As seen in the above photo from Thursday, October 27, a Trump supporter named Beth Lyerla donned a costume, imagining Hillary in a prison uniform.
Lyerla, who hails from Gilbert, Arizona, was only one of many who attended rallies associated with Trump that linked Clinton to jail time in some manner.
Chants of “lock her up” could often be heard at Trump rallies, in reference to Clinton. The above rally featured Donald Trump, Jr. as a speaker at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.
Another Trump supporter can be seen in the above photo as Joe Dubuque wore a similar prison costume and mask of Clinton.
That photo was taken during the all-important Election Day happenings as Joe spoke with Missouri Republican gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens. It was at an election night watch party on Tuesday, November 8, in Chesterfield, Missouri, when that photo was captured.
More recently, Trump spoke with 60 Minutes, musing over whether or not he would continue to recommend the pursuit of investigations into Clinton’s private server. However, on Tuesday, Conway introduced a seemingly more congenial Trump and spoke of Clinton healing from her presidential defeat, not prison time.
“If Donald Trump can help her heal, then perhaps that’s a good thing.”
Speaking about Trump’s plans for his first 100 days in the White House, Trump spoke of putting America first by adding “Patriots” to his staff to help him create wealth via jobs. Trump also spoke of executive actions that could be taken on his first day in office, such as creating a trade notification of intent to withdraw from the TPP.
Trump also noted the changes he wanted to make regarding the energy sector to cancel job-killing restrictions around coal.
Trump wants regulations done away with, which means two old regulations killed for every new one in order to streamline red tape. Trump spoke of quelling cyber attacks and dealing with immigration and visa programs. He also spoke of bans on executive officials lobbying for special interests with foreign entities.
As seen in the top photo above from Monday, November 7, a Trump supporter held a sign at a campaign rally in Leesburg, Virginia. The sign spoke of locking Clinton up in jail.
