The Emhoff family had some notes for Saturday night live regarding your recent sketch on the family’s Passover Seder dinner. Their reviews had nothing to do with guest host Maya Rudolph’s portrayal of Vice President Kamala Harris or Martin Short taking on the role of Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, but with family members who did not show up for the Seder at the SNL Sketch.
Doug’s son Cole Emhoff tweeted a two-eyed emoji, writing, “@nbcsnl, how are you going to leave me out of my own family dinner …”
Kerstin Emhoff, Cole’s mother and Doug’s ex-wife, responded to his tweet, writing: “Hmmmm @ColeEmhoff and I definitely fell out of that parody @nbcsnl 😉. That’s not the Doug we know!”
Neither Kamala nor Doug have commented on the performance, nor have Ella Emhoff, Doug’s daughter who was played by cast member Chloe Fineman.
Last week, Doug hosted his own Easter celebration at the White House, calling it “an absolute honor” On twitter.
As for Kamala, she has spoken profusely about her stepchildren in the past. In a 2019 Mother’s Day essay for Elle, she wrote about the first time she met her now husband’s children.
“Cole and Ella couldn’t have been more welcoming,” he shared. “They are bright, talented, fun kids who have grown into extraordinary adults. I was already hooked on Doug, but I think it was Cole and Ella who cheated on me.”
