“Sure, he’s historically bad for the country, but he’s given us so much,” the ad declared.
In one of its last episodes before the 2020 election this weekend, Saturday Night Live presented what, at first, seemed as though it might be a straight-up campaign ad for Joe Biden.
“Everyone knows this could be the most important election in our nation's history. And the two choices couldn’t be more different,” the ad began. It back and forth between a group of “regular voters” who asked questions like, “Do we want four more years of Donald Trump or a fresh start with Joe Biden?” and “Can we survive four more years of scandal, name calling and racial division or do we want a leader who unites the country?”
Then things started to take a turn. “I want to vote for Biden because he’s better, smarter, better and better,” Pete Davidson said. “But I’m worried.”
Their big concern? If Donald Trump’s not president anymore, “then what are we going to talk about?”
“Every single day I tell someone, ‘Can you believe what Trump just said?’” one shared. Another added, “My entire personality is hating Donald Trump. If he’s gone, what am I supposed to do? Focus on my kids again? No thanks.”
“Sure, he’s historically bad for the country, but he’s given us so much,” they continued. “Injecting bleach in our blood. Openly calling African nations shitholes. Kids in cages wasn’t even a phrase before Trump!”
