Saturday Night Live kicked off its season 45 finale this weekend with a tip of the hat to the Class of 2020. The cast members appeared on-screen remotely in the cold open as graduating seniors, with Alec Baldwin joining them as President Donald Trump.
Wearing a red “Make America Great Again” cap, Baldwin offered a somber commencement address warning the graduates that the job market is bleak because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
“You’re actually lucky to be graduating right now,” he began. “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.”
