A top border official criticized White House secretary Jen Psaki for her reaction to horrendous photos of border agents on horseback corralling Haitian migrants.

Border agents on horseback chased down frightened Haitian immigrants in Del Rio, Texas on Sunday.

About 15,000 immigrants who migrated to Texas from South America and Mexico were living in squalor under the Del Rio international bridge at the US-Mexico border.

Reportedly, the border agents were ordered to round up the migrants for deportation back to Haiti.

When asked about the shameful behavior of the border agents, Psaki said the videos were “horrible to watch,” and condemned the agents’ actions.

Psaki and other Democrats claimed the agents were “whipping” the Haitian migrants.

However, Border Patrol agent and head of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd lashed out at Psaki for “perpetuating the narrative that police are bad.”

Judd claims Psaki and the Biden administration knew the border agents were not whipping people with their reins.

He said it is protocol for agents to “twirl” their reins to keep people away from the horses.

“There are very few things that will boil my blood as bad as the White House directly coming out and condemning an action before they know what happened,” Judd told Just the News.

“Jen Psaki came out yesterday, and she condemned these actions, when in reality, it is a legitimate law enforcement action. This was meant to protect the illegal aliens.”

Judd said agents are trained for crowd control by the Homeland Security Department to “twirl the reins” so humans aren’t trampled by the horses.

“We have to keep those individuals away from the horses. If they get too close to the horses, the horses could step on them and they could break bones. They could kick them. They can get kicked in the head. It could cause death.”

Emily Ratajowski, Nicholas Braun & More Appear In Halloween Talk Show Sketch On ‘SNL’ With Jason Sudeikis

Emily Ratajowski, Nicholas Braun & More Appear In Halloween Talk Show Sketch On ‘SNL’ With Jason Sudeikis

Kenan Thompson’s ‘D’Andre’ hosted the ‘SNL’ talk show sketch, which included a few familiar faces — including cousin Greg from ‘Succession’!

You never know who might pop up on Saturday Night Live — and October 23rd was no exception! While Jason Sudeikis, 45, hosted the episode, the former SNL cast member had a supporting role in this sketch which was all Kenan Thompson. As a BET logo flashed on the screen, Kenan introduced the spoof talk show called, “What’s Up With That — Halloween Edition” that included some major guests like Emily Ratajkowski, Oscar Issac and Succession’s Nicholas Braun.

“We’re taking on the issues of the day with soul,” Kenan declared, rocking a longer hair ‘do and a ’70s inspired burgundy suit. He went on to introduce his guests — Oscar, who was dressed as a pirate, Emily, as a cat in tiger ears, and Succession actor Nicholas Braun — who appeared to come as just himself.

Kenan didn’t let the gang do much talking, however, as he continued on with his rather repetitive song. “I woke up this morning and I got out of bed…hid from a ghost and a scary black cat….ooh wee. What’s up with that, what’s up with that?” Kenan’s D’Andre crooned with a little help from another guest star: Fred Armisen as Giuseppe the saxophone player and Jason Sudeikis, who appeared to be channeling The Royal Tenenbaums in a red Adidas suit while doing his doing as a back-up dancer.

“Well thank you very much for joining us. We’re excited about Halloween! It might get a little creepy. It might get a little stinky!” Kenan then told the group, as Chris Redd busted a move in the audience before turning his attention to Fred’s Giuseppe.

“I hope your wife is feeling better,” Kenan said to a chuckling Fred, rocking a long wig just like Kenny G (who is one of the most successful artists of all time). “That wasn’t a joke, Giuseppe,” Kenan clarified. After brief chatter with his guests, D’Andre appeared to be confused about Nicholas — confusing him with Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac.

“He has been on every show that we have ever had for the last 12 years — Lindsey Buckingham,” D’Andre announced, seemingly thinking the legendary rocker was dressed up as Cousin Greg from Succession. “The best cousin Greg from Succession I have ever seen,” he noted to a confused Nicholas.

“I’m Nicholas Braun,” the Succession star corrected multiple times throughout the sketch. The guests — including Oscar — didn’t get the chance to do much talking, though, as Kenan went right back into his song.

“Well, we outta time — but I wanna thank Oscar Issac for being here,” D’Andre said at the end, with Oscar noting, “That’s how I thought it would go.”

Jason Sudeikis Hilariously Spoofs Ellen DeGeneres On ‘SNL’ With ‘Mellen’ — Watch

Published

Jason Sudeikis

Move over Ellen — Mellen has arrived in the form of Jason Sudeikis! The actor brought his spin on the talk show host to ‘SNL.’

Jason Sudeikis, 45, brought all the laughs on Saturday Night Live — including in this Ellen DeGeneres spoof! The Ted Lasso star played spoofed male version Mellen who dressed just like the talk show host, and had a show in a very similar looking set as a voice over explained the difference between the two.

“Mellen’s a man man! You never know what Mellen might do next! He won’t just hi-five the audience, he’ll fist pump them too,” they explained, noting there were some similarities — including sneak up surprises!

“Just like Ellen, Mellen has sneak up surprises,” the voice over said, as Mellen interviewed Chris Redd‘s character who appeared to be against the COVID-19 vaccine. As Chris was speaking, a nurse pupped up from behind and stuck a syringe right into his neck for a Gotcha! moment. “You just got vaxxed, Mellen style!” Jason’s Mellen quipped.

The actor’s journey to his long-time role at SNL — which gave him the platform for a successful film career — came after he wanted to become a member of the Blue Man Group. “They flew me out to New York…That was August of 2001, right before 9/11. And I got to see myself bald and blue,” he hilariously said to GQ last year. Shortly after, he was asked to audition for Lorne and the Saturday Night Live team — which he wasn’t keen on.

“I didn’t want to work on SNL,” he confssed. “At a certain point in your comedy journey, you have to look at it as like McDonald’s…You have to be like: ‘No. Never’,” he reasoned, eventually, of course, saying yes. “It was like having a crush on the prettiest girl at school and being like, ‘She seems like a jerk.’ And it’s like, ‘Oh, really? ‘Cause she said she liked you.’ ‘She what?!” he went on, drawing a parallel to his actual feelings.

Jason has been in the headlines in recent months for changes in his personal life: the actor’s longtime relationship with Olivia Wilde, 37, came to an end in Nov. 2020. The exes are parents to Otis, 7, and Daisy, 4, who they continue to co-parent. “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year…and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle,” he said in the same interview. “That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about. You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavor to learn something beyond the obvious from it,” he also said.

Jason Sudeikis Reprises His ‘Joe Biden’ Alongside James Austin Johnson & Alex Moffat’s On ‘SNL’

Jason Sudeikis Reprises His ‘Joe Biden’ Alongside James Austin Johnson & Alex Moffat’s On ‘SNL’

Jason Sudeikis made his first ‘SNL’ appearance in years! The actor was a long-running cast member on the series before departing in 2013.

Jason Sudeikis, 45, is back! The actor appeared on  Saturday Night Live for his first-ever hosting gig on Saturday, Oct. 23 — and reprised his role as Joe Biden! New comer James Austin Johnson opened with his new take on the current president in an Oval Office set. Seemingly exhausted, he pondered — what happened to his old self?

In come Jason’s Biden, who he hasn’t portrayed since 2013! “I’m you! I’m you from 8 years ago. The ghost from Biden’s past — boo!” Jason hilariously quipped, visibly casual in a bomber jacket and baseball hat (Johnson’s Biden, however, was in a full suit and tie).

“Yeah, partner, where I’m from — we’re still VP. Easiest job in the world. We’re like America’s wacky neighbor…we pop in with ice cream, shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders,” Jason’s Biden explained to his future self, played by James’ version, who tried to fill his past self in on the last eight years (including Donald Trump).

“The last president ruined everything! Ordering McDonald’s to the White House, hanging out with strippers,” he began, as Jason’s Biden quipped the “only mansion I care about is the Playboy Mansion — that’s classic 2K-13 Biden!”

SNL cast member Alex Moffatt — who played Biden once in 2013 — also joined the fun. “Who the hell are you?” Jason’s Biden asked. “I’m Joe Biden?” Alex’s Biden replied to a confused Jason and James were clearly confused. “From When?” Jason’s Biden then inquired. “March 2021?” Alex replied, as the two dismissed him.

“I should just mosey back on 2013, I just got tickets to a concert,” Jason suggested, before giving James some advice. “We may be from different eras — at the end of the day, we’re both Joe-freaking-Biden.”

Jason’s career has exploded since his long-running tenure at SNL, which began as a writer before becoming a cast member in 2005 (he left in 2013 after a decade). Most recently, the actor has starred in arguably the biggest hit on Apple TV+, Ted Lasso. The Fairfax, Virginia native plays the title character in the series, which follows the story an American college football coach who led the Wichita State Shockers to a Division II NCAA championship.

The popular show even led to Jason’s first-ever Emmy in Sept. 2021, where SNL showrunner Lorne Michaels teased the former cast member’s return. “Jason Sudeikis will be coming back soon,” the Canadian-born producer said to press, declining to offer more details. Jason was later confirmed alongside Owen Wilson, Kim Kardashian and Rami Malek as one of the first four hosts to kick off season 47.
