What a time to be a Saturday Night Live writer. Last night’s cold open featured a re-enactment of last week’s vice presidential debate, which lasted only moments before being interrupted by the revelation of Donald Trump‘s (Alec Baldwin) outrageously vulgar comments about women. Host Lin-Manuel Miranda also referenced the presidential campaign in his opening monologue, delivered in verse to the tune of “My Shot” from his musical Hamilton.
“I somehow honestly thought Donald Trump had peaked on the whack-a-doo meter,” Michael Che’s news anchor said later. “Turns out, he’s got another gear.” Watch clips from last night’s SNL below, and see more here.
