Merry Impeachmas! For the second half of today's Sunday entertainment double feature, I'm going to be a good environmentalist and recycle the concept behind last month's SNL has fun with impeachment hearings and Democratic debate but mix things up by beginning my entry the same way last night's show did with PBS Democratic Debate Cold Open.
2020 presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren (Kate McKinnon), Andrew Yang (Bowen Yang), Pete Buttigieg (Colin Jost), Amy Klobuchar (Rachel Dratch), Bernie Sanders (Larry David), Joe Biden (Jason Sudeikis) and Michael Bloomberg (Fred Armisen) face off in a debate.Once again, Bloomberg crashes the SNL version of the debate, even if he's not going to appear on the actual ones unless and until the DNC replaces donations and poll numbers with actual votes. Even then, I'm not sure he'll make the stage.
The Democratic debate did not feature into Weekend Update. Instead, impeachment was the story of the night in two clips (and a red herring in a third). The segment opened with Weekend Update: President Trump Gets Impeached.
Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che tackle the week's biggest news, like the House democrats moving forward with impeachment against Donald Trump.Just as Weekend Update opened with impeachment, it closed with it, too. Watch Weekend Update: Jeanine Pirro on Fox News Handling Trump's Impeachment
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong) stops by Weekend Update to talk about celebrating Christmas and how President Trump's impeachment is a Democratic coup that will disappear.That was disgusting — hilarious, but disgusting.
That concludes today's entertainment double feature. Stay tuned for an airing of grievances on Festivus.
