“I don̵7;t believe I’ve been this excited about losing my job before!”
IDK if you know, but we just had an election, and after days of sweating / waiting / crying / panicking, the winner was finally announced.
Anyway, a new episode of SNL was aired on the same day the voting results were announced, so you can imagine the show’s cast and script had a lot to say about the whole thing.
Among them is Alec Baldwin, who has been impersonating Donald Trump on the show since 2016.
When the election took place, the actor, who won the Emmy Award for his role as president, made his feelings quite clear.
That’s right, the end of Trump’s presidency means the end of the mark SNL efficiency.
For his last hurdle, Baldwin-as-Trump appeared open-minded and delivered a speech reminiscent of the most recent presidential remarks from the White House.
Then he stepped off the stage and walked over to a piano, where he started playing a sad version of “Macho Man” by The Village People, before saying, “This is not America over. I’ll see you in court! “
A moment reminiscent of the first SNL episode after the 2016 election, when Kate McKinnon-as-Hillary Clinton played Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”.
At the end of the show, Baldwin held up a sign that read “You’re Welcome”, probably because of his years at work, but according to him, it was not always easy.
After the show, he also tweeted a farewell message.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a few more of Trump appearances above SNLBut this certainly seems like goodbye for now.
