Saturday Night Live took on rival ABC Joe Biden and NBC Donald Trump City Halls during his latest episode. The show started with a cold opening that saw Alex Baldwin reproduce his role as 45 and Jim Carrey transform into the Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president.
The jokes about the conflicting town halls also found their way into the recent installation of “Weekend Update”. When Michael Che brought up the topic for NBC City Hall, the program said the Thursday program should not have been a surprise.
“What can we say, we have a guy,” the comedian said. Next to Che appeared a picture of Bill Cosby, Matt Lauer, and Trump, hinting at the rape allegations of the first two men.
“Weekend update” did not give up Trump. Among Che and Colin Jost at the desk were Alex Moffat as Donald Trump Jr. and Kyle Mooney as Eric Trump. With the two sets, the segment continued to spot Trump’s “sarcastic” proposals for disinfectant as COVID-19 treatment.
Moffat’s Donald continued to drink hand sanitizer, only for Mooney’s Eric to criticize him for it.
“Dad said it was fine, ”moffat joked.
The “Weekend Update” segment also touched on Trump’s failure to condemn QAnon during City Hall, his surprisingly low tax return and the president’s crowded rallies.
