Wiki

Victoria Jackson (born August 2, 1959) is an American comedian, actress, and singer best known as a cast member of the NBC television sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live (SNL) from 1986 to 1992.

Starting in 2008, she has appeared on various television shows. She has received attention as a vocal critic of President Barack Obama, an active participant in the Tea Party movement, and a vocal proponent of Barack Obama citizenship conspiracy theories.

Jackson was born in Miami, Florida, the daughter of Marlene Esther (née Blackstad) and James McCaslin Jackson, a gym coach. Raised by devout Christian parents in a home without a television, she was trained in gymnastics by her father from ages 5 to 18. Jackson attended the private Dade Christian School, where she was a cheerleader and the Homecoming Queen. She subsequently attended Florida Bible College in Hollywood, Florida. Three years of gymnastics competitions led to a scholarship at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina. She also spent one year at Auburn University, before earning a degree in theatre from Palm Beach Atlantic University.
