Actor, comedian, and author Darrell Hammond is a 14-year veteran performer on "Saturday Night Live" and currently the main announcer for SNL. He's also the host of the podcast, "Darrell Hammond Saves the World."
Hammond was on In-Depth to talk about his new podcast with co-host Louie Sabatasso, and share with listeners just a few of his political characters. Hammond says the podcast is irreverent but admits it's a tough time to perform comedy critical of President Trump.
"These are people (Trump supporters) who are so emotionally involved. It's like missionary zeal," Hammond says. "What's up with that?"
Hammond adds that it's unwise to underestimate Trump. "He's a genius at understanding power. How to get power. Understanding how to keep power. And understanding how to use it to keep people in line."
