NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” mocked Ben Carson for his comments about homosexuality during their “Weekend Update” segment.
Michael Che commented, “potential Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon, said this week that homosexuality is a choice because many people go to prison straight, and when they come out, they’re gay. Kind of like how in that last sentence, Dr. Carson went in as a neurosurgeon and came out as a complete idiot.”
Colin Jost added that Carson “made the comments to himself, over and over, in the men’s locker room,” with Che saying that Carson stated homosexuality is a choice, but “unfortunately for him, so are elections.”
The two then said that perhaps they were piling on, before Jost concluded with “this just in! Dr. Ben Carson, a candidate for president, is no longer a candidate for president.”
