SNL Breaks Fourth Wall to Speak to Voters
In the final live episode before Election Day, Saturday Night Live used its cold open to break the fourth wall. Alec Baldwin’s Trump and Kate McKinnon’s Clinton took the stage to poke fun at the investigation surrounding Clinton’s emails and Trumps questionable allegiances. Before they could finish, Baldwin slips out of character, addressing McKinnon directly. "I'm sorry, Kate. I just hate yelling all this stuff at you like this," he said. McKinnon, as herself, agrees and the two took each other’s hands, running out of the building. They exited to Times Square to share in surreal unity with strangers. They returned to the stage with a serious message for viewers – none of this matters if you don’t vote. A non-traditional open for a non-traditional election season.
