Surprised By SNL Writer’s Barron Trump Tweet? Look At NBC’s Record On Politicians’ Kids

Earlier this week, it was reported that SNL writer Katie Rich was suspended by NBC for a tweet singling out 10-year-old Barron Trump.

The network was initially silent on this issue, but after receiving much pushback, decided to take action.


This was not the first time NBC has found themselves in hot water for calling out politician’s children—in fact, it’s been sort of an ongoing issue.

As early as 1992, SNL did a skit making fun of Chelsea Clinton (via The Weekly Standard):

Let’s go back to December 5, 1992. Saturday Night Live opens with “Wayne’s World.” Wayne and Garth supply a Top 10 list of things to look forward to during the Clinton administration. Number 2? Chelsea Clinton: “While it’s true that adolescence has been thus far unkind, we think she’s gonna be a future fox.” Mike Myers says, “Chelsea Clinton–not a babe.”

Following the Clinton administration, President George W. and Laura Bush pleaded with the media prior to inauguration day to steer clear of jokes about the Bush sisters.

Not so.

Via World Net Standard:

Recent events at Cable’s Comedy Central indicate that Hollywood is planning to savage the Bush daughters with a vengeance. While the network has since retreated due to public outrage, it had planned to depict the Bush daughters as “hot and sexy lesbian lovers” engaging in oral sex in its new animated “comedy,” “That’s My Bush.”

Much more recently, in 2008, Chelsea Clinton was once again treated in poor taste when asked on television to defend her mother’s credibility in light of her father’s Monica Lewinsky scandal (via Huffington Post).

That scenario led to an even greater gaffe, when an MSNBC reporter accused Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign of “pimping out” her daughter to make superdelegate phone calls.

The following presidential season brought similar issues.

In 2011, SNL performed a skit which suggested Todd Palin maintained a sexual relationship with his daughters.

Overall, NBC’s track record for keeping politician’s kids “off limits” has been consistently bad from the beginning.

We shouldn’t be the least bit surprised that’s the case now, either.
