As Donald Trump's impeachment looks ever more certain in the House, even if the Senate has a Get Out of Jail Free pass waiting for him, the president's future is likely to be a big topic at holiday dinners. This week's SNL imagined what some of those conversations might look like, thanks to Aidy Bryant playing a magic snowman with spying superpowers.
First, we check in on Cecily Strong as a liberal mom in California, saying, "I'm so happy everyone flew here for the holidays, and I'm even more happy that they did it! They're impeaching Trump!" Cut to Beck Bennett as a conservative dad in South Carolina, lamenting that same fact: "It's a disgrace! What crime did he even commit?" And then to Kenan Thompson as, well, a black dad in Georgia, asking his kids, "I'm just asking! Do y'all think Bad Boys 3 is gonna be good or not?"
The sketch flips between these three dinner tables, the liberal, conservative, and realistic, before settling back on Bryant's snowman, with the moral of the story:
"Now those three families may seem different, but you see they have one important thing in common: They live in states where their votes don't matter. Because none of them live in the three states that will decide our election. They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to a thousand people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election till the morning of. And that's the magic of the electoral college!"
The politically accurate Frosty doesn't get the last word though. Before she can wrap up, Kate McKinnon bursts in with a pink hoodie and a halting Swedish accent, portraying teen climate activist Greta Thunberg, with a Christmas message of her own: "In 10 years, this snowman won't exist. Her home will be a puddle. Santa, reindeer, the North Pole, all of it, gone! The ice caps will melt, and the elves will drown."
It's not the message of unity and healing that people probably expect for the holiday season, but, hey, winter is dying and we have a finite number of years left to do anything about it. So, McKinnon-as-Thunberg wraps up, "Merry Maybe-Our-Last-Christmas to you all! And Donald Trump, step to me and I'll come at you like a plastic straw comes at a turtle."
Researcher David Spratt warns in a new report that "no political, social, or military system can cope" with the worst outcomes of climate change.
