Woody Harrelson may not be invited back to Saturday Night Live after his monologue this past weekend, but libertarians and vaccine critics everywhere were delighted. Everyone’s favorite “hippie redneck” blasted Covid vaccines and mandates, and the audience was shocked into silence.
It’s a pretty safe bet that Harrelson didn’t run his actual monologue past producers beforehand. He rambled in the first part of his monologue then, in what seems like improv, stuck the zinger at the end before they could queue up the giant hook and pull him offstage, vaudeville-style.
Watch below. (If you want to skip to his zinger, go to about 5:50.)
Woody may not be everyone’s cup of tea, what with his openness about Marxism, veganism, and marijuana use, but you have to admire his moxie. Taking this opportunity to bring to light on the MSM what many of us have been saying for 3 years is a career-threatening move, but he did it with aplomb.
Harrelson said that in 2019, he “blazed up a fattie” and “read a script” that he summarized like this:
…the biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes, and people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over. I threw the script away. I mean, who was going to believe that crazy idea? Being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day long.”
