My Favorite Sketch From Margot Robbie’s #SNL: Presidential Debate
Margot Robbie hosted the season premiere of SNL on Saturday night, and overall it was a great show. We got our first pre-taped sketch of the season, the bizarrely funny ‘The Librarian’. We also got our first Family Feud sketch, and what I hope is the first of many David Ortiz spots on Weekend Update.
SNL struggled to satirize what is happening in politics last season, and I think a lot of that has to do with just how insane our current political landscape is. Donald Trump is one of two people who have the chance to become the President of the United States. How are you supposed to get any crazier than that? The biggest change coming into season 42 was the man playing Trump, as SNL switched from former cast member and current MC Darrell Hammond to Alec Baldwin. I’d never seen or heard Baldwin do a Trump impression before, but any fears I had that he wouldn’t deliver were erased right away. He nailed the voice and the mannerisms of the Donald, and I cant wait to see what else he brings to the table as the season goes on. Emmy winner Kate McKinnon was brilliant as usual as Clinton, and the extended cold open set the stage for a really fun season premiere. Next week, Lin-Manuel Miranda takes the stage.
