‘SNL’ Mocks Dana Milbank’s Name

On “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend the show once again mocked MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton‘s inability to read off a teleprompter. More importantly, it suggested that WaPo columnist Dana Milbank, who once called President Obama “our first female president,” has a feminine name.

“What is this about?” Kenan Thompson, who played Sharpton, asked Jason Sudeikis, who played Milbank. “I mean, you’re a man, but your name is Dana.”

Sudeikis replied, “Well, Al, there’s lots of men named Dana.

“Well I don’t trust it,” said Thompson. “You know what– I’m going to call you Dan A.”

Pictured above is a screengrab of SNL’s “Milbank.”
