The “king of late night” Greg Gutfeld savagely heckled the writers over at “Saturday Night Live” for their sketch with Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, a move that in tight New York City comics circles might colloquially be referred to as “shots fired.”
The “Gutfeld!” host opened his Monday night monologue with a look at the former South Carolina governor’s role in the opening sketch from NBC’s late-night show over the weekend.
“She fit right in by not being funny,” Gutfeld said. “She played the role of a concerned South Carolina voter in the opening skit, questioning a fake Donald Trump in a townhall – and she showed all the charisma of a five-pound bag of all-purpose flour.”
The Fox News show then rolled a clip from Haley’s Saturday appearance, in which she asks Trump if the legally embattled front-runner needs to borrow some money.
“Oh, don’t do this, Nikki Haley Joe Osment!” said the exasperated Trump impersonator, playing on the former president’s tendency to ramble. “We call her – remember that one? ‘I see dead people.'”
“That’s what voters will say if they see you and Joe on the ballot,” Haley replies.
Cut to Gutfeld: “The only dead people we see are the writers for this show.”
Hello, NYPD? We heard what we thought might be gunshots.
Watch the comic-on-comic crime in the video above.
