    Cecily Strong Religion

    Information on Cecily Strong’s religious views is unknown. It appears that Cecily has chosen to not share this info with the public at the present time.

    The closest that we could come to finding anything to do with religion or a personal belief about faith is what Cecily said in a 2013 interview. It’s not like she said that she believes in a God or practices a certain faith, but what Cecily said may shed some light on who she is as a person.

    “Dogs are the best: This is my religion,” Strong was quoted as saying. “As a kid I had a German shepherd-collie mix named Emma who was the worst-behaved dog in the neighborhood. (Her nickname was Emma Goddammit!) I believe that dogs’ evolutionary purpose is to provide companionship. Animals offer the best unconditional love.” (1)

    Cecily Strong Political Views

    Strong’s views seem to align with the Democratic Party, feeling passionately about women’s rights issues. When she hosted the 2015 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, she started the job off with this zinger: “I’m not going to tell you how to do politics, or whatever. That’d be like you guys telling me what to do with my body. Can you imagine?” (2)

    Other jokes that Cecily cracked at the dinner took a shot at race relations in America:

    “Let’s give it up for the Secret Service. I don’t want to be too hard on those guys. You know, because they’re the only law enforcement agency that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot.”

    On Barack Obama: “Your hair is so white now it can talk back to the police.”

    And she seemed to feel that the next President would be a Democrat and likely Hillary Clinton:

    “Let’s talk about the most important person in the room, my leader: Michelle Obama. Now Michelle, you take care of that garden while you can. In 18 months, you know Bill is turning that thing into an above-ground pool.” (3)


    Cecily Strong Hobbies

    As is the same with her views on religion, information about what Strong enjoys doing when not working is not really found. The only tidbit readily available is a quote regarding her love for Instagram.  She seems to follow the news given her commentary on politics and current events. She is an outspoken comedian so one may inquire that she enjoys spending time crafting jokes.


    Life Advice from Cecily Strong

    “I can be a big dumb Chicago hothead, but I know that when I’m feeling nasty or negative—or I’m around nasty, negative people—life can seem much harder. My advice: Try smiling even on rough days. Choose your battles, and then try letting the rest go. Try to find a way to be positive. This may sound hippie-dippie, even for me, but I think putting good vibes out in the universe returns some to you” (1)
