Liberals Build a City-Size Bubble to Hide From Trump’s America in Great Fake SNL Ad

Wanna get away?

Donald Trump was quick to complain about Saturday's episode of SNL. "It is a totally one-sided, biased show—nothing funny at all," he wrote early Sunday on Twitter.

And sure, it had plenty of Trump bashing, as Alec Baldwin returned as the president-elect and, among other things, Googled "What is ISIS?" But the fake commercial below might have at least put a small smirk on Trump's face, as it mocked progressives by imagining a city-size bubble they could live in—to close themselves off along with all of their "open-minded" friends.

"In here, it's like the election never happened," says one of the smug upper-middle-class Bubble residents as she saunters along what's clearly a New York City street. Turns out it's Brooklyn, of course. (That borough did cast 79 percent of its votes for Hillary Clinton, though that was less than Manhattan and the Bronx, at 84 and 86 percent, respectively.)

See the spoof ad here:

SNL aired a second fake commercial on Saturday night, this one for Target—whose giant parking lots are perfect for young people who are home for the holidays and need a break from family members who voted for Trump.
