‘SNL’ takes on Trump’s impeachment acquittal
Carlson, played by Alex Moffat, watched Saturday’s episode of the NBC variety sketch show run away without fear, such as “AOC is hiding in your house right now, aren’t you keeping it in your house?” “Everybody knows they are boys.”
He immediately jumped into the news of impeachment by inviting Sen. Lindsay Graham, played by Kate McKinnon, into his Fox News show.
Graham said, “Thank you, Tucker. It’s a great day for 30% of America’s people.”
Graham of McKincon then explained that the trial had now ended and the country could focus on real issues such as closing Hillary Clinton and freeing Britney Spears.
The fake Graham outsmarted Sen. Ted Cruz, played by Eddie Bryant.
“Can I say the beard is working,” said Carlson of Moffat.
“Well, you will be the first,” Bryant Cruz replied.
Moffat’s Carlson then showed clips of Trump defense lawyers like Bruce Castor, played by Mickey Day.
Dey’s Castor said, “Hello, Senate and other serious people, I want to apologize unconditionally the last time I was out of here.” “As you all know, I’m the Chief Prosecutor – no, sorry – I’m a lawyer. I know the difference. As Trump’s guarantor – no, not even right.”
Finally, Moffat’s Carlson asked Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, played by Beck Bennett, to talk about why he voted to acquit Trump.
“Everyone knows that you can’t attack a former president,” he said. “That’s why when we said we couldn’t, we should have impeached him before he came back.”
Moffat’s Carlson then asked what he really thinks of Trump.
“I think he’s guilty as hell and the worst person I’ve ever met,” Bennett McConnell said. “God, it felt good. I’ve been holding it inside my neck for four years.”
Moffat’s Carlson then wrote the show’s famous catch phrase, “Live … from New York! It’s Saturday Night!” Saying it wrapped up its segment.
