ROSIE O'DONNELL NO STEVE BANNON ROLE FOR ME ON 'SNL'

Anyone hoping to see Rosie O'Donnell play Steve Bannon on "Saturday Night Live" better write to their congressman ... Lorne Michaels. We got Rosie leaving Nobu in West Hollywood Thursday night and she told us her uncanny photoshop of Bannon is as far as she'll be taking the role. Why? Sounds like the idea failed to launch with 'SNL' honchos. We'll always have this ...

In order to be effective parody first more than 2% of your audience has to have some idea who Bannon is.

How many Executive staff members have been spoofed by SNL, prior to Trump? This seems rather obscure.

I like him pictured as the Grim Reaper in the skit.

Suits me.

Federal Govt. needs a grim reaper to slash and burn the regs.

I think that SNL prefers to portray Bannon as the Grim Reaper. Besides, who wants to work with O’Donnell? I think she has a reputation for being impossible to get along with.

Cut every agency payroll by 5 percent.
Do it again.

Who needs SNL when we have the nightly news to entertain us? Sheesh, when SNL is closer to reality that the msm - they have a huge credibility problem.

Rosie may adopt the Bannon Look anyway. Just like Ellen Degeneres, Rosie seems to like dressing in an androgynous or masculine style. SNL probably knows how power hungry she can be. Rosie would want to take Melissa’s job before long.

Bannon is going to help drain the swamp.

He is very talented, they fear that.

I bet it’s because she’s an insufferable beyotch to work with, even by liberal standards.

Plus she would have to loose 300lbs to look like Steve.
On the positive side...she already has “Chock full of Nuts”

I think they would love to parody Bannon, they just know what an insane load of bovine excrement Herr Rosie is and want no part of her.

Yes, I agree. They will parody him. The last version was dressing him up as the Grim Reaper.

They just don’t want Rosie...

Rosie would be better suited to be in running of the bulls in Pamplona. As a bull of course

I think he threw a bunch of interceptions in a Super Bowl years ago.
