In a surreal — yet too genuine — minute on Saturday Night Live this evening, Jessica Chastain intentionally broke character as a talk program host to lament, what even matters any longer?
Chastain seemingly plays host Veronica Elders, quizzing participants played by Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, and Kenan Thompson on whether relevant things President Trump has actually stated or done just recently even rate amongst his base or the media today.
Not remarkably, absolutely nothing does.
Even theoretical scenarios, nevertheless objectively terrible, do not matter.
“The president fires Robert Mueller, the really male examining him for treason. Does it even matter?” host Veronica asks.
“He hasn’t done that yet,” Strong’s character clarifies.
“Yeah, however he’s gon na, so you understand, when he does, will it even matter?” Veronica continues, buzzing out Strong’s response when she recommends that, regardless of the reality that it would cross a line, it would make a lick of distinction.
The wheels begin to fall off when Veronica develops increasingly more over-the-top future occasions, quiting on the video game program format totally to down a bottle of red wine while the entrants compose their own nutso recommendations of what the president might do that would potentially cause any sort of effects.
That’s when McKinnon informs Chastain — not “Veronica” — she does not need to do this.
“Jessica, we understand you’re distressed about the method our nation’s going, however you can’t simply, like, develop an entire video game program set and make us pretend to be participants,” Strong includes.
“I’m sorry men, it simply looks like absolutely nothing matters any longer,” Chastain — not “Veronica” — states.
She concludes the program with a group hug.
It’s been a year. We might all utilize a hug.
