NBC News Section got on fire this week for hosting a town hall event with President Trump on Thursday night, who competed with a similar program the ABC had already planned with Joseph Biden Jr..
However, the controversial broadcasts created some content for the NBC entertainment side, where Saturday Night Live covered the events of the duel and captured several satirical shots online for its role in the controversy.
This weekend, SNL, led by Issa Rae and featured musical guest Justin Bieber, began with a voice that promised to re-show two town halls and called the NBC event a “trap for President Trump’s thirst.” Now, according to the voice, the events will be presented as most viewers initially watched them: “Flipping back and forth, trying to decide between a Hallmark movie and an alien autopsy.”
The sketch was opened on Mikey Day as ABC moderator George Stephanopoulos, who explained that “Questions when asked in his town hall are half behind Biden and half against Tramp.”
He introduced Jim Carrey, recurring as Biden, who took the stage with aviator sunglasses and made a crowd of his familiar fingers. Day asked him if he was ready to get “questions about people who are already voting for you”.
Meanwhile, on the NBC parody side, Kate McKinnon introduced herself as a “surprise” to Savannah Guthrie and said, “If you’re angry at NBC for doing this at City Hall, just let me get a few questions and I think you’ll ‘thank you.’
She welcomed Alec Baldwin as President Trump and told him, “We have a lot of voters waiting to ask questions, but I would like to start by tearing you up again.”
In response to each other, Baldwin refused to distance himself from the supremacy of the Whites (“I’ve always more or less condemned it,” he said), QAnon (“If anyone opposes pedophiles, it’s me, a man who was a close personal friend to one of the world’s most famous pedophiles – rest in power, Jeffrey) The Aryan Brotherhood (“They’re very family members, that’s all I know”) and Ku Klux Klan (“Your car breaks down, you call Triple-K)”).
When asked about recovery from a coronavirus, Baldwin replied, “I had a low-grade fever. It was about 100. Celsius. But I did great. I never died, I never saw hell or the devil. He never showed me a list of my sins. I was just alive and strong the whole time. “
Chloe Fineman played Paulette Dale, an audience member who told President Trump that he “smiled perfectly”, and Ego Nwodim played Mayra Joli, who enthusiastically nodded through many of the president’s responses.
This brought Maya Rudolph as Senator Kamal Harris, who said, “This is the last place I want to be, but someone has to ask: what the hell is going on with that woman? Because I’m just nodding when the waiter asks if I’ll have mimosas before breakfast. “
Returning to the NBC debate, McKinnon pretended to attack Baldwin with a chair that had become a WWE-style WrestleMania competition.
Finally, the candidates proposed a final report. Carrey said if elected, he would have only one scandal: “I will mislead Angela Merkel about her wife from behind and tell her she has a rock cabin,” he said.
Baldwin said to the audience, “Just ask yourself America, aren’t you better than four years ago?”
In response to the animated map of the United States, he exclaimed, “No!”
A commercial parody of the week
“All these protests and civil unrest,” says the tired Everyman, played by Beck Bennett. “It simply came to our notice then. But how can I help when I don’t even understand what some people are going through every day? I want an easier path. “
In a voice, Kenan Thompson tells him that there really is: a new supplement for 5-hour energy creators called 5-hour empathy that offers “five full hours of full, intimate understanding of years of systemic oppression and constant racism.”
“Great,” Bennett replies, looking less than enthusiastic as he opposes repeated attempts by voices to force him to actually use the formula. (“Come on, man, I’m not a racist,” he protests at one time. “I’m voting for Biden, what more do you want?”) His wife, played by Heidi Gardner, offers her excuses. for avoiding the product (“I don’t need it,” she says, “Because I’m a woman. So it’s the same”) until Bennett threw himself out the window.
Weekend weekly update jokes
Anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che at the Weekend Update table continued to riff on the recovery of President Trump following the coronavirus and the competitive debate at City Hall in which he and Biden took part.
The belt began by saying:
This week, President Trump has hosted more coronavirus gifts across the country as part of his herd’s immunity tour. He started in Florida and by saying that he showed how healthy his brain is. [a video plays of Trump saying, “They say I’m immune. I feel so powerful.”] Yes, no one says I give up on steroids, like I yell “I feel so powerful” as lazy from The Goonies. Then, during a rally in Georgia, the congressman was surfing in a direct crowd, I think, on the second wave of Covido. And yet somehow it looks like Trump could lose the election. Listen to this. [a video plays of Trump saying, “Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know.”] Hey, don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep. Because, by the way, no other country would accept you because you are from America, which has too many Covid cases. Although it would be very nice if it all ended with Donald Trump becoming an illegal immigrant. Any country will go to Trump, I just want to apologize because we don’t send the best or the brightest.
What went on:
NBC hosted a town hall event with President Trump because what can I say? We have a type. [an image appears showing Bill Cosby, Matt Lauer and President Trump] I’m starting to think you guys don’t like anything. Who was this town hall? Who is still at the fence about this election? Whether you’re voting for Trump or Biden, you’ve really made up your mind and you’re probably not worried about that. These choices are so bad that Kanye’s run and people are like “Maybe?” That wouldn’t have happened if we had really good candidates. When Kennedy competed against Nixon, no one was like that, and what about little Richard?
A visit from the Trump children of the week
In desktop segment During the Weekend Update, Mikey Day and Alex Moffat appeared for the first time of the season as Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump. Day, as Donald Trump Jr. told Jost, “I was out on the campaign path and spreading my father’s message a lot. Eric held his first Zoom business meeting today. Moffat, like Eric Trump, proudly declared, “I was silenced.”
They were joined by Chloe Fineman, who played their half-sister Tiffany Trump. “It simply came to our notice then I danced in Miami without masks with a bunch of scars on board, ”she said. “But I mean, I’m a stepfather named Tiffany. My job is to fade the South Beach. ”
