'SNL Finale': Is Alec Baldwin bidding farewell to Trump impressions on show?
This episode left us with one lingering question: did Baldwin hint he won't be doing any more Trump impressions?
'Saturday Night Live' finale left viewers laughing as Alec Baldwin reprised his role of President Donald Trump. He took on the role of a valedictorian for the graduating class of 'COVID-19'. The show started with Kate McKinnon taking on the role of principal O'Grady. O'Grady seemed to be a hurry to get the ceremony over with and thought it was ironic that the class was celebrating the graduation only to have them doing their college classes online.
With the pandemic hitting hard, she was aware it wasn't going to be the best graduating experience for them. Despite this, she tried to make it special as she invited Trump to the conference call as the valedictorian. Baldwin's Trump congratulated the graduating class of 'COVID-19'.
He assured everyone that there was a lot waiting for them outside once they graduated. He hinted that with COVID-19 hitting the world, many job options have opened up and some of them include cam girls and bouncers, among others. However, the students were not impressed to have him and asked for Dr Anthony Fauci instead.
However, Trump did not seem to pay attention to their thoughts as he drank some Clorox bleach and said, "Don't you hate when these elite medical experts tell you what to do? Excuse me... Good old invincibility juice." Trump also had some advice for the graduating students.
He said, "Believe in yourselves and you can achieve anything, Look at me, I started as the son of a simple, wealthy slum lord... and grew to become a billionaire, a president and the world's leading expert on infectious diseases. Surround yourself with the worst people you can find."
Despite his words, people were not impressed as many started leaving the chat and opted to not listen to him. Trump seemed surprised and stated that people had left chat faster than Adele lost her weight. Towards the end, there was only one student remaining to hear Trump's speech.
While fans loved every bit of the speech, one burning question that lingered in the minds of the people was if Baldwin hinted he won't be doing any more Trump impressions. Baldwin ended his segment by bidding goodbye to everyone while adding that it would be "one last time" him signing off as Trump on the show.
Fans have been scratching their heads ever since and have one question on their minds: "Did Alec Baldwin just imply this was the last time he was doing Trump?" One wrote, "I believe Alec Baldwin just said this will be the last time he dishonors Donald Trump on."
Another comment read, "I wish that 'one last time' reference meant this was Alec's last time playing Trump. Though come to think of it, the way things are going, Season 46 of #SNL might not start until after the election."
