The remote NBC Saturday Night Live season finale kicked off with Baldwin’s Trump acting as keynote speaker for the promotion of seniors this year.
“Hello everyone, I’m the main O’Grady. Welcome to St. Mary Magdalene By The Expressway’s 2020 Virtual Graduation Class, “said Kate McKinnon at a class-wide zoom conference playing for students. “I know this is not how you expected your high school career to end, but we all make sacrifices. I had to share my child’s Adderall with him. “
McKinnon principal told the class that she had tried to get favorite class speakers from former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama, but they said no, as did the five next choices.
“So I went to your eighth choice, receiving a vote, President Donald Trump,” she said.
“Congratulations to the class of Covid-19,” he said.
The false president of Baldwin told the class that he was honored to be their “promotion major.”
“But it’s not for me today, it’s for you,” he said. “Although I should spend some time on myself first because I was treated very badly, even worse than they treated Lincoln. “
One of the students, played by Chris Redd, pointed out that Lincoln had been murdered.
“Lincoln would agree,” said Baldwin’s Trump. “He’s probably smiling at me from hell right now. “
Trump from Baldwin explained that the class is very fortunate to graduate right now as there are many exciting new jobs like “grocery bouncer”, “porch pirate” and “amateur nurse”.
“I’m going to make sure the colleges are open in the fall,” he told the seniors. “Online college is a scam, and I should know that. My online college was ranked # 1 in the craziest scam by US News every year it opened. “
Finally, Baldwin’s Trump gave the class a few words of wisdom.
“Surround yourself with the worst people you can find so that you will always shine,” he said. “If you don’t understand something, just call it stupid … and live everyday like it’s the last one because we’re going to let this virus go wild.” “
He also told the class his favorite inspirational quote.
“Reach for the stars because if you’re a star, they’ll let you do it,” said Baldwin’s Trump.
Baldwin then broke the character.
“Recorded from my home, one last time, it was Saturday night,” he said when opening the show.
