JUST NBC THE DOUBLE STANDARD: SNL Mocks Ted Cruz’s 5-Year-Old Daughter.
Earlier: In a 1992 “Wayne’s World” sketch on Saturday Night Live, “the characters Wayne and Garth (portrayed by Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, respectively) made fun of Chelsea Clinton (the then 12-year-old daughter of the then President-elect Bill Clinton), implying that Chelsea was incapable of causing males to ‘Schwing!’. This joke was subsequently edited out of all repeats and syndication rebroadcasts of this sketch, and Myers even wrote an apology letter to the White House.”
And in 2008, then-MSNBC anchor David Shuster was suspended “for suggesting the Clinton campaign had ‘pimped out'” then-27-year old Chelsea Clinton “by having her place phone calls to celebrities and Democratic Party ‘superdelegates’ on her mother’s behalf,” as the New York Daily News reported in 2008.
