Colin Jost Recaps Donald Trump’s Most Insane Presidential Moments On ‘SNL’s Weekend Update — Watch
From Donald Trump’s fast food buffet to posing with the Easter Bunny and throwing paper towels at crowds, ‘SNL’ didn’t miss a beat with this montage.
Donald Trump‘s presidency is set to end on January 20, 2021 — and Saturday Night Live commemorated the 74-year-old’s only term with a look back at some of his most insane moments. The one-minute montage ran during Colin Jost and Michael Che‘s “Weekend Update,” set to 1998’s “Closing Time” by Semisonic. Some of the moments were unforgettable — such as his inappropriate mockery of a physically disabled journalist during his 2016 run — while others brought a chuckle (like the time he met a fictional yellow Minion from Despicable Me). There was no Alec Baldwin Donald here, but simply the real deal.
The video opened with Donald hugging an American flag, which he oddly did at the 2019 Conservative Political Action Conference near Washington D.C. (not his first time doing so). As if the on-stage embrace wasn’t enough, he mouthed, “I love you, baby” — which sent Twitter into a meme storm back in March 2019. There was also the time he hosted a banquet for the Clemson University Tigers after their victory in the N.C.A.A. football championship. While many visitors to the White House might be expecting a multi-course steak dinner, Trump shocked everyone with his fast food buffet. In the included photo, he can be seen smiling as he’s surrounded by a bevy of perfectly placed McDonald’s classics, including Filet-o-Fishes, Quarter Pounders, and McNuggets.
“I think we’re going to serve McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, with some pizza,” Donald said to press ahead of the Jan. 2019 soirée. “I really mean it. It will be interesting. And I would think that’s their favorite food. So we’ll see what happens,” he added. And he certainly kept to his word with the addition of the pizza boxes, BK and other fast food delights in the unforgettable photo. Other included moments were the time he met the Easter Bunny and his hair blowing in the wind (could have been from any one of his four years).
Of course, there was also 2017 when he decided to throw paper towels at a crowd in Puerto Rico following the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The SNL team didn’t stop there, adding a clip of Trump addressing water over usage in America. “People flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times…” he said in the short, out-of-context clip. “America, don’t cry because it’s over — smile because it happened,” Colin concluded the segment. “And then probably cry a little bit. I don’t know, I’m still working it out with my therapist,” he added.
