Michael Che Plays a Liberal White Woman on 'SNL' and I'm Just Going to Leave This Right Here

By Dustin Rowles | Saturday Night Live | December 10, 2017 |


We’ll have our full recap of SNL up in the morning, but I just want to break out this segment from “Weekend Update” real quick. In it, Michael Che plays a liberal white woman named Gretchen. Watch for yourselves.

People on Twitter love it.

But see, they love it right now. But I know how social media works. They’ll love it until someone finds something problematic with it, and by mid-morning on Sunday, Facebook will have turned against it and the backlash will set in.

I give props to Che, though, for provoking what will probably be a dozen think pieces.

I will not be offering a take. I might be totally wrong, but I feel like this is one of those times where if I commit to an opinion tonight, it’s going to bite me in the ass tomorrow. So, I’m going to be like the boyfriend described in another Che joke tonight on “Weekend Update” who doesn’t get involved in the argument between his girlfriend’s parents. He just says, “Yeah. I hear that.”
