Someone should have told this guy that tattoos are permanent and he’ll live to regret what he just did. Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson wanted to give Hillary Clinton a Christmas present. So, he got a ‘badass’ tattoo of her on his right leg. His chances of ever getting married just plummeted. Just sayin’.
Pete Davidson posted an image of his new Hillary ink on his Instagram page, saying it was a “gift” for the 2016 runner-up. “Wanted to get @hillaryclinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero,” Davidson wrote in an Instagram post. “Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe.” Man, you need some new heroes and I sincerely mean that. I think I may hurl over this.
Jon Mesa of No Idols Tattoo in New York was the tattoo artist who inked Davidson. He confirmed it was his artwork. It’s real and it’s forever. “Yes, its real,” he told Us Weekly on Friday. “Just did it last night at my shop No Idols Tattoo on Bowery and Grand! It’s a small one on his right leg.” “Got to do this mini portrait of @hillaryclinton on @petedavidson last night,” wrote tattoo artist Jon Mesa, who has visited Davidson on the SNL set in the past. Davidson’s photo of his tattoo remains his only Instagram post. He periodically purges his account.

Hillary Clinton, who has no sense of humor that we know of, thanked Davidson for his forever admiration. “Thanks, @petedavidson, This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years,” she wrote. “But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend.” Ha, ha… lame. And if she really does have one, no one in their right mind wants to see it. Ewww. To this, Davidson was genuinely surprised at Clinton’s response saying, “OMG WHAAAAAAAT!!!!”
Davidson joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2014, when he was just 20 years-old. He is known for his fierce opposition to President Donald Trump (i.e. Trump-hatred) and currently presents SNL‘s “Weekend Update,” which involves him and other figures mocking the current administration. Did I mention he’s not in the least funny? Maybe that goes without saying. Davidson has previously admitted that he suffers from depression and mental illness. No kidding. Who would of thought?
In one of his tedious updates, Davidson had the gall to accuse Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon of anti-Semitism. Which is idiotic, but that didn’t stop Davidson. “They say give Trump a chance and the first thing he did was hire a chief strategist who everybody is saying hates Jews. They say no Bannon doesn’t hate Jewish people, he’s worked alongside them. Yeah, and Mel Gibson did four Lethal Weapons with Danny Glover, that proves nothing.” Mel Gibson made mistakes, but he’s a good man. I’m not thrilled with Bannon, but I seriously doubt he hates Jews. This guy is just parroting liberal talking points.
The 24 year-old comic also made headlines last year after responding to Trump’s criticism of the show by simply saying: “Never been more proud. F*ck you b*tch.” Deep. What intellect. SNL hires only the best evidently. Let’s face it, Saturday Night Live hasn’t been very funny in forever. They’ve gone uber political and they get nasty about it. When you’ve got cast members putting political tattoos on their bodies, you know you have a problem. They suck about 80 percent of the time and that’s being kind. Previously, the New York City native ripped his home borough of Staten Island as a “bunch of Trump-supporting [expletives]” in an interview with Uproxx.
While I’m at it, although the tattoo is nicely done, it looks nothing like Hillary Clinton even when she was younger. Putting a person’s face on your body via a tattoo is the second most regretted tattoo out there. And it’s even worse if it’s a politician. That was a REALLY bad choice on this kid’s part. As Chicks on the Right so adeptly put it, “Think about how brainwashed and/or ignorant you must be to get that hideous criminal’s face tattooed on your skin for all of eternity.” Just wow.
