STURGEON finds her true and natural calling on America’s cutting edge satirical programme:
By Razeda Smyle – Shameless publicity and comedy routine correspondent
FIRSTMINSTER SAINT Nicola of Sturgeon has appeared on one of American television’s top chat shows.
She instantly trumped Salmond’s profile as Scotland’s lead comedian.
Ms Sturgeon began by questioning her billing on the show’s website as a “politician”.
She told host Jon Stewart: “You billed me on your website as a politician – so you’ve raised all these expectations that I’m going to talk sense.”
The Firstminster added: “I’m a comedian, and as you know, I’ve been having a laugh at Scotland’s expense for the past eight years.”
Ms Sturgeon is on the second day of a four-day trip to America where she is undertaking a series of engagements on the comedy circuit.
Once again, she followed in the footsteps of the Labouring party’s leaders by making an appearance on the Daily Show where she invited America to laugh at Scotland.
Amid laughter from the audience Stewart assured Ms Sturgeon that there was no way he could trump her line “Stronger for Scotland” in the face of her party’s record on education and health.
Other topics touched on during the broadcast included the SNP’s success in suckering the Scottish electorate into believing her party would do better for the country.
American viewers were in stitches in their reaction to the Scottish Firstminster’s comedy routine.
US journalist Skylar Baker-Jordan, who covers Comedy politics, said: “Sturgeon is on top of her game as usual. Deceptive, evasive and contradictory. That line about being Better Together in Europe is a humdinger. Where did she come up with that one. Hilarious.”
The Firstminster’s engagements for Tuesday include taking selfies with kids in front of the media and on Wednesday she will take some selfies with kids in front of the media.
