Newt Gingrich Set Up as Moon President on SNL (watch!) 2Newt Gingrich finally has his day as president on the moon in a hilarious “Saturday Night Live” skit. In megalomanic Newt’s fondest “crazy ass fantasy,” he rules while socialist Obama burns in an earthly hell.

The Republican presidential candidate has had the moon hanging from his neck ever since he proclaimed he’d build a 13,000-person moon colony if elected.

He’s been the butt of late night jokes, and last night, SNL took its best shot with a hilarious Sci-Fi sketch. Bobby Moynihan must be overjoyed at Gingrich’s foibles; he gets yet another return gig to play Newt. Kristen Wigg is hoary Calista, Newt’s third wife.

The skit was the show’s cold open. It’s 2014, and Obama, in his second term, is no longer hiding his socialist agenda. The weakened nation is being threatened by its enemies and unemployment is sky high. But on the moon, things are sublime.

Newt is joined by Herman Cain (Kenan Thompson) and served by his trusty Reagatron 3000 (Bill Hader) robot. When North Korea and Iran attack with nuclear weapons, Newt is philosophical.

Life will continue on the moon, except for one small problem. There are only 200 men in the colony; the rest are women. Fortunately, Calista has an answer. Check out the video below.
