Saturday Night Live continues to have a big day with the 2020 presidential election results, with numerous skits about Donald Trump’s eventual exit from the White House. On Saturday night, the SNL team gave the reality television star’s exit an OJ Simpson spin.
Ego Nwodim and Dave Chappelle portrayed two Washington, DC news channels tracking down a White House chase. Turning to the President’s “live” footage on the highway, SNL shows the infamous clip of Simpsons White Ford Bronco speeding down the highway while the police chase him and Donald Trump Jr. takes the wheel.
“This is a volatile situation. If they scare the president, he could unleash an army of proud boys and flag-waving trucks, ”warns Chappelle’s newscaster. “He’s like Aquaman, but instead of fish, he could conjure up the entire parking lot of a Cracker Barrel.”
The sketch continues when Trump Jr. makes an emergency call in which a Trump begs for a hamburger with a laconic-sounding Trump in the background.
“Right now we’re fine, but you have to tell the police to just resign, to resign, or dad to officially launch the campaign for 2024,” a stressed Trump Jr. told a 911 dispatcher. “My father has finished the announcement tweet – all he has to do is press a button.”
When Nwodim’s anchor describes the “desperate” situation the Trumps appear to be in, Chappelle replies that there are two ways of looking at the situation that is unfolding before them.
“You hate to see it, but more than that, you love to see it,” he says
Chappelle hosted the post-election Saturday Night Live episode, and the Foo Fighters were the musical guests.
