The SNL star Leslie Jones revealed she hopes to move past the Trump and other political jokes the next season of Saturday Night Live

This season has been a constant satire and humor about politics of the country, and it looks like Jones is already tired of it. She strongly thinks that the political satires have dominated the SNL this past season. 

She shared with The Wrap in a phone interview, her hopes to do a lot of funnier stuff than political comedies the coming year. 

There was so much stuff that was happening, there was no way that our show, with the responsibility that we have, would not to cover that stuff. It was just too important.

The 50 years' old further added, 

But I do hope that next year will be a lot more funny-funny based stuff, more comedy based stuff instead of a lot of political stuff.

She realized that the political stuff has a lot of importance to the SNL but, with that, there is also a greater comedy world. 

She also stated that,

One thing that I always made a goal was never to talk about what everybody else is talking about, because most of the time, maybe 10 comics are doing literally the same Trump joke.

She added, 

No one just gets up and does a simple joke that makes you laugh. 

The Ghostbusters star joined the cast of the SNL in December 2013 first as a writer, and later as one of the actors.
