NEW YORK, NY – NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live has come under fire this week after last week’s episode aired a joke about conservative political consultant Rodger Stone’s 75 year-old, cancer-afflicted wife being gang-raped by members of Congress.
On the episode’s “Weekend Update” segment, SNL cast member Michael Che addressed Stone’s recent announcement to not cooperate with a subpoena issued by House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, demanding he submit to a deposition and turn over relevant documents.
While displaying a photograph of Stone wearing his trademark teashade glasses, Che vaulted over the line of good taste by making a sexual assault joke about Nydia, the longtime Trump ally’s ill wife to whom he’s been married since 1992.
“Trump adviser Roger Stone, who draws his glasses on with a sharpie, refused to cooperate with the committee investigating the January 6 attacks. Though Stone said he would be open to sitting in the corner watching the committee take turns on his wife,” Che said, to a mixture of subdued laughs – but mostly uncomfortable groans – from the live studio audience.

Nydia – whose husband revealed in June has been battling stage IV lymphoma – spoke out this week on the attack by SNL, expressing dismay via an Instagram post that a rape joke made at her expense has not been soundly condemned by the media-at-large.
“The Me2 movement only applies to liberal, young, white females,” she said. “SNL PROMOTED THAT I BE GANG RAPED BY A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE stooping to a new low attacking me, a 74-year-old cancer survivor, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother fighting for my life.”
