Alec Baldwin resumed his imitation of President Trump in the season finale of Saturday Night Live – this time with the Commander in Chief delivering an opening speech via Zoom in which he says he is honored to be the ” major ”while drinking bleach to keep the coronavirus away.
“Congratulations to the COVID-19 class,” Baldwin’s Trump told graduates of the Sainte-Marie-Madeleine highway.
Trump is chosen to deliver the opening speech after the students’ choice to deliver the address – Barack and Michelle Obama – was unable to do so.
Alec Baldwin resumed his role as President Trump in Saturday Night Live. He drank a sip of “Invincibility Juice”, or Clorox, which the President recommended people take in real life
Kate McKinnon (above) acted as principal at St. Mary Magdalene By-The-Expressway High School
Trump made sure to praise “promotion of COVID-19”
Students then listed other preferences, including lead singer of Guns’ N Roses, Axl Rose, newly arrived murder hornets, ‘Limu Emu’ character from Liberty Mutual insurance ads, and baby Elon Musk- Grimes.
The main one, played by Kate McKinnon, rose to the “eighth choice” of students – President Trump.
Baldwin’s Trump then appears with a red Make America Great Again hat.
Broadcast by “The White House,” Trump thanks “everyone applauding” – when in reality there is only one student clapping his hand.
“What incredible energy and excitement I am feeling right now,” said the president to the graduates.
“Now my valet has caught the virus, so I had to put on makeup,” says Trump.
“I had to use a Liza Minelli makeup tutorial – TikTok.”
In real life, a valet who works at the White House has given positive results for COVID-19, as has press secretary of vice-president Mike Pence, Katie Miller.
On Saturday, we learned that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top infectious disease expert, and the heads of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration were quarantined after being in contact with a member infected White House staff.
Trump chosen to deliver opening speech after students’ choice of address – Barack and Michelle Obama – failed to do so
“I am so honored to be your co-author, but today it is not mine,” said the president in the SNL sketch.
‘It’s about you.’
“Valedictator” is a word that merges “valedictorian” – the student with the highest grade point average – and “dictator”.
Even though Trump first said he wanted to focus on the students, he then turns to talk about himself, saying he is “very badly treated.”
“Even worse than they treated [Abraham] Lincoln, “says Trump of Baldwin.
When one of the graduates, Damien, who is played by Chris Redd, points out that the nation’s 16th president has been assassinated, an agitated Trump says, “I’m not taking questions, Beebop. I only tell the truth. ”
“Lincoln would agree,” said the president. “He’s probably smiling from hell right now. “
At one point, Trump claimed he was worse than Abraham Lincoln, but a graduate, Damien, pointed out that the 16th president had been assassinated
Trump responded by cutting off Damien and the other “types of jazz” on the Zoom call
When another African-American graduate, Sam, played by Kenan Thompson, objects, Trump requests to mute it along with all other “types of jazz.”
Trump then tells the graduates that they have a lot to wait for when it comes to the job market.
He then listed several jobs sought during the pandemic, including “grocer, gam girl, porch pirate, amateur nurse and smut.”
“Don’t forget coal,” says Trump. “It’s in the ground and you just have to dig and grab it. “
“But I don’t want to do this,” said one of the graduates to Trump, who ignores him and moves on.
The president then said he would make sure “colleges are open in the fall.”
“Online college is a scam,” said the president.
“My online college was ranked number one of the craziest scams every year it was opened,” said Trump.
It was a reference to Trump University, the now-disappeared business venture that was shut down after several people took legal action for fraud.
In November 2016, the Trump Organization agreed to pay $ 25 million to settle two class actions and one New York state lawsuit.
When the SNL opened cold, some of the graduates began asking Dr. Anthony Fauci to give the start address.
Fauci, the country’s foremost infectious disease expert, is a member of Trump’s coronavirus task force.
In the sketch, Baldwin’s Trump disparages Fauci.
“Don’t you hate having these elite medical experts tell you what to do? Said the president.
He coughs and takes a sip of Clorox bleach, which he calls “the good old invincibility juice.”
Graduates, like the one played by Beck Bennett (above), demanded that Dr. Anthony Fauci deliver the opening speech
In real life, Trump was ridiculed after suggesting that people infected with COVID-19 could drink cleaning disinfectant and bleach to rid the body of the disease.
The president then said he was sarcastic.
Many graduates dismiss Zoom’s call in disgust after the president has been drinking bleach.
In the sketch, Baldwin’s Trump then begins to motivate graduate students.
“Believe in yourself and you can achieve anything,” he says. ‘Look at me.’
Trump continues, “I started as the son of a simple, wealthy slumlord, and grew up to be a billionaire, president, and the world’s leading infectious disease expert.”
The president then encourages graduates to “surround yourself with the worst people you can find.”
While Trump was the “eighth choice” of students to speak, at least one was a staunch supporter
“That way you will always shine,” he says.
“If you don’t understand something, just call it stupid. Never wear sunscreen.
“And live every day like it’s the last one because we’re going to let this virus go wild. “
Trump then claims that the virus was launched “in a laboratory, in Obama.”
He then offers his favorite inspirational quote: “Reach for the stars, because if you are a star, they let you do it. “
This is a reference to the fact that Trump is caught in a hot microphone describing to Access Hollywood host Billy Bush how he would grope women because he was a “star” and “they let you do it.”
In the sketch, when Trump asks “Who’s with me?” All of the graduates except one supporter log out of the Zoom Chat.
“The crowd thinned out faster than Adele,” said Trump, referring to the dramatic loss of weight by the British singer in recent months.
