‘Saturday Night Live’ Opens With Alec Baldwin Making America Great Again By Drinking Bleach

Saturday Night Live kicked off its season 45 finale this weekend with a tip of the hat to the Class of 2020 and a virtual graduation ceremony. As the cast members appeared on screen remotely as graduating seniors, they were joined by Alec Baldwin who reprised his role as President Donald Trump.

Wearing a red “Make America Great Again” cap, Baldwin warned the graduates the job market is bleak because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

“You’re actually lucky to be graduating right now,” he began, before delivering the somber news. “There are so many exciting new jobs out there, like grocery store bouncer, cam girl, porch pirate, amateur nurse, and coal. Don’t forget about coal, it’s in the ground and you just dig down and grab it.”

Later, Baldwin began to cough, but put a bottle of bleach up to his and chugged it as a possible remedy, in a reference to the real President Trump’s recent comments about potentially using disinfectants to treat coronavirus.

Baldwin called the drink “good ole invincibility juice.

The episode marked the show’s third “At Home” episode amid the coronavirus pandemic. The first installment aired on April 11 and was opened by Tom Hanks and featured a musical performance from Chris Martin.

The second episode ran on April 25, and was opened by Brad Pitt who appeared as Dr. Anthony Fauci (and himself), and featured a special appearance from Miley Cyrus as the musical guest. Latin rapper Bad Bunny also appeared in a sketch.
