Just found this , I must have missed this episode on SNL, I don't watch tv.
Apparantly back in April one of the opening skits on SNL portrayed Mitt Romney speaking to the mayor of East St,Louis.


The opening skit on NBC's Saturday Night Live parodied GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney speaking at campaign events across the country, with the candidate pretending to be interested in everything from cat spaying to body piercing.

In the skit, Romney, played by actor Jason Sudeikis, is speaking to the East St. Louis Chamber of Commerce.

“You know, Ann and I have lived and traveled all over the world, but I'll let you in on a little secret,” he says. “The only place that has truly ever felt like home is right here: East St. Louis, Illinois.” - OP-possibly a reference to the Joseph Smith prophecy that Independace Missouri will be New Jerusalem or new sion. Note that east st.louis is actually located in Illinois.

Kenan Thompson, playing the East St. Louis mayor, responds from behind the campaign podium: “Are you crazy? This is a hellhole.”


Romney says: “Really? I find it to be such a lovely place.”

Thompson assures him: “Trust me, I'm the mayor. This place is a hellhole. We live in a hellhole.”

Another cast member states: "Yes, we hate it here."

Parks said on Monday that Saturday Night Live is a "comedy show and it's their job to joke." 

"My job is to make East St. Louis better, and that's what I'm doing," he said. 

Parks said he first watched the skit this morning.
