Say Goodbye With The Last SNL Debate Sketch of 2016
The end of this insufferable election season does have at least one negative consequence: no more campaign sketches from Saturday Night Live. So let’s savor the last time we’ll see Hillary Clinton (Kate MacKinnon) and Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin) go head-to-head in late night.
The SNL writers immediately seized on the Donald’s clear attempt to begin the debate soft-spoken and calm – an attempt he can never maintain long. Even Hillary caught flack for her non-response to questions about her emails.
And we got a rare pre-monologue appearance from the week’s host, Tom Hanks, as a dead ringer for moderator Chris Wallace.
During his monologue, Hanks embraced his role as “America’s Dad” and sat down for a heart-to-heart with the nation. He discussed the changes in appearance and sexuality the country is experiencing, and all the money problems it’s having.
