President Donald Trump sang a sad, sad swan song on the Saturday Night Live episode that aired barely 12 hours after Joe Biden’s (final) election victory.
At the cold opening, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer (played by Beck Bennett) – after checking in a magician with John King (Alex Moffat) with blunt-fingered cards – admitted that he wanted more than Biden and his runmate Sen. Kamala Harris (Jim Carrey and Maya Rudolph) celebrate, “they want to see Trump sad too,” so he threw POTUS ‘”amiable and factual” concession speech at what he rolled his eyes to.
“As everyone who died mid-Tuesday knows, I was re-elected President of the United States,” began Alec Baldwin’s Trump, who then pointed to a map and boasted how red the states were … only to see that it was a COVID card.
Trump grumbled about how his electoral vote kept dropping “until there was just a tiny bit left” and then stepped off his podium to remind everyone “who I really am”. With this in mind, he sat at a piano and sang the villagers’ “macho man”, but barely got through and finally drummed through tears: “I have to be… a macho man.”

CNN coverage then returned to Biden and Harris who, while trying to be gracious in victory, stated that there must be “a winner and … a looooooser” in every election, with Carrey in his Ace Ventura catchphrase expires. “A looo-ooo-ooo-ser!”
What did you think of the SNL’s first cold after the election results?
