‘SNL': Leslie Jones Goes All ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ on New Anti-Abortion Laws (Video)

The Wrap Sunday, 19 May 2019
Leslie Jones stopped by the “Weekend Update” segment of the season finale of “SNL” do deliver a fiery denunciation of “the war on women” she sees in recent antiabortion laws passed by multiple states in an apparent effort to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Jones first appeared in a red cape and white bonnet in homage to the regressive dystopia depicted in Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” “Well, basically we’re all handmaids now,” she said, before removing the cape to reveal a black t-shirt that said “MINE” with an arrow pointing down.

“I see on the news a bunch of states are trying to ban abortion,” she said, before jokingly suggesting the moves could lead to a slippery slope. “The next thing you know, I’m at Starbucks and they won’t take my credit card because I’m a woman instead of the regular reason, which is I don’t have no money on me.”

She also called out the 25 white, male Alabama senators who voted for that state’s legislation, the most restrictive in the U.S. since it does not make exceptions for rape or incest. “This looked like the casting call for a Lipitor commercial,” she joked.

Jones turned more serious, and more outraged, as her monologue continued. “You can’t control women because, I don’t know if y’all heard, but women are the same as humans,” she continued. “Why do all of these weird ass men care what women choose to do with their bodies anyway? I don’t care what you do with your 65-year-old droopy ass balls.”

She wrapped up her commentary by calling the recent legislation a “war on women” but assured female viewers they are not alone.

“There are so many women out there that got your back, especially me, Leslie Dracarys Jones,” Jones said, a reference to the battle cry in “Game of Thrones” that instructs Khaleesi’s dragons to unleash their fiery breath. “You can’t tell me what to do with my body.”
