‘Saturday Night Live’: Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin Break Character to Urge Viewers to Vote – Variety

In their last outing on “Saturday Night Live” before the election, Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin used the cold open to mock the candidates one final time — and urge viewers to vote.

The segment began as a parody of Erin Burnett’s CNN show “OutFront” with Cecily Strong playing the news anchor, grilling the candidates on the tightening race.

“It might be the bottom of the ninth and it’s tied and it’s raining, but this old Chicago Cub is still gonna bring it home,” said McKinnon as Clinton.

Much to Clinton’s chagrin (“Please be his taxes”), Burnett brought up the big story of the week: Clinton’s emails.

Trump as Baldwin countered that he never uses emails, instead using a “very private site”: “It’s called Twitter.”

Burnett said, “Mr. Trump, everyone can see your tweets.” A surprised Trump replied, “Really? And I’m still in this thing? America, you must really hate this lady.”

Clinton then ticked off a long list of things that Trump has ruined that “we as Americans hold dear”: kindness, decency, Tic Tacs, Skittles, taco bowls, the word great, the color orange.
