Chris Rock makes ‘SNL’ cameo to mock white liberals shocked by Donald Trump’s win
In the skit, he and host Dave Chappelle watch the election unfold with their friends, who started out confident in Democrat Hillary Clinton’s victory.
When someone starts out claiming “this is going to be a historic night, we’re about to have our first woman president,” Chappelle is quick to point out: “Don’t forget, it’s a big country.”
The two of them sit back and watch as the liberals seem confused as they slowly realize Trump will become president.
“Oh my God, I think America is racist,” one person said.
Chappelle replied: “I remember my great-grandfather told me something like that. He was like a slave or something.”
Throughout the election the comedy show has brought levity to the contentious election season, and it ended with a stunning tribute from SNL regular Kate McKinnon.
Dressed as Hillary Clinton, she sang Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, less than a week after he passed away.
At the end of the song, she turned to the camera and said “I’m not giving up and neither should you.”
Chappelle hosted the show, and wished Trump well in the coming years, but reminded him that he should remember to give the “historically disenfranchised” a chance.
