“A town hall was a thoughtful, compelling discussion about the problems our country is facing,” said the show’s spokesman at the start of the show. “The other showed President Trump.”
The NBC variety show then took viewers to Biden’s City Hall on ABC.
“I gave each audience a glass of warm milk and a blanket,” said Biden, played by Jim Carrey. “Well who is ready to have fun with facts and figures ?!”
“SNL” then went to Trump’s City Hall on NBC.
“Good evening America. I’m surprised Savannah Guthrie, and if you were mad at NBC for doing this town hall, just let me ask a few questions and I think you̵
Alec Baldwin’s Trump then took the stage and was asked about tweeting conspiracy theories.
“I didn’t tweet it. It was a retweet, which is a really smart tweet,” he said.
“Okay, but you can’t just do that,” McKinnons Guthrie replied. “You’re not just someone’s crazy uncle.”
“Really? Because this conversation we’re having is a preview of Thanksgiving dinner,” said Baldwin’s Trump. “So crazy uncles, step back and stand by.”
“SNL” then moved back to Carrey’s Biden Town Hall.
“And that brings us to 1939, a year I went to the World’s Fair and met the real Mickey Mouse,” Carrey’s Biden was heard answering a question.
The show then switched back and forth between the two.
In one second, Baldwin’s Trump and McKinnon’s Guthrie were fighting like professional wrestlers, in the other, Maya Rudolph’s Kamala Harris showed up, and then Carrys Biden turned into Mr. Rogers and the painter Bob Ross.
“Every tree has its own personality, just like America,” Carrey’s Biden said, as Bob Ross said while painting.
Then he closed his town hall by saying that he will never tweet because he doesn’t know how.
In the other town hall, Baldwin’s Trump finished his conversation with McKinnon’s Guthrie.
“In summary, only one question matters,” said Baldwin’s Trump. “Just ask yourself America, aren’t you better than you were four years ago?”
A comic map of the country answered aloud, “No!”
“All right, just try to bring me to life,” said Baldwin’s Trump before saying the show’s tagline, “Live … From New York! It’s Saturday night.”
