After the crazy week in Washington there was no shortage of material for Saturday Night Live’s final episode of the season to take one final dig at Donald Trump and his administration. But instead of taking the bait, the show took a different tack in what looked very much like a swan song for a presidency that is increasingly engulfed in scandal.
Alec Baldwin as Trump sat at the piano on the main stage and began performing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. One by one he was joined by other cast members and their memorable impressions of administration members that helped make what many have described as a turnaround season for the show.
You’ll remember that in November, SNL employed the same song to mark the election loss of Hillary Clinton and the death of Leonard Cohen.
