Village Men and women Dance Towards Trump on Weekend Update

There are so a lot of musical artists who oppose Donald Trump’s use of their music as a portion of his campaign, there is a whole Wikipedia page devoted to preserving monitor of them all (which, mods, if you’re reading this, make sure you add Betty Buckley to the checklist). Trump continue to dances to 70s gay anthems “Y.M.C.A.” and “Macho Man” at his rallies, so Saturday Night time Reside’s variation of the Village People today showed up to Weekend Update very last night to threaten Trump with legal, and unlawful, motion. Kenan Thompson (the cop), Mikey Day (the cowboy), Chris Redd (the soldier), Beck Bennett (the development worker), and Bowen Yang (the leather-based daddy/biker??) bust out some choreo in front of Jost and Che’s anchor desk to sing about how they’ve employed Alan Dershowitz to mail Trump a cease and desist mainly because “he is aware of exactly where you’ve been, he is aware of what you have witnessed, on that island with Epstein”. When Jost tells them that is an egregious accusation to make, the Village Men and women choose the future rational move for verse two: They threaten to shave Ivanka’s head. Yes, the writing’s hilarious and the performances nail it, but the actual MVPs of the sketch are Bowen and Mikey’s crotchless chaps with denim cutoffs underneath, with Day’s cowboy shirt unbuttoned all the way down and Yang’s casual cat o’ 9 tails ribbon choreo. Pack it up simply because they’ve currently received Halloween for the calendar year.
