Sen. Cotton: “Hey SNL, I’m As Tall As The Rock”
(KFSM) – Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, had a message for Saturday Night Live regarding his height after being featured in a skit, according to one of his tweets.
In the skit, actors portraying Cotton, House Speaker John Boehner, and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, are in the White House speaking to President Obama about their recent actions.
They eventually make the president so angry he turns into “The Rock Obama,” a Hulk-like alter ego portrayed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Rock Obama then proceeds to ask Cotton if he likes to write letters. When Cotton says he does, the angry president asks how he will write letters without a hand and proceeds to rip Cotton’s hand off.
Cotton then runs and jumps out of a nearby window that the president had just thrown Boehner through.
The Arkansas senator sent a tweet to SNL calling the skit “clever” but reminding them that he is as tall as The Rock.
The actor that portrayed Cotton, Kyle Mooney, is listed on IMDb as five feet seven inches. IMDb lists Johnson’s height as six feet four inches.
