The sketch came just hours after a very bizarre press conference delivered by Giuliani in which he alleged voter fraud during the election (for which there is no evidence); networks had universally declared that President-Elect Joe Biden had won Tuesday’s election earlier in the day. Guiliani meant to deliver his remarks at the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia but ended up holding the conference outside a gardening company called Four Seasons Total Landscaping. The building sits between a crematorium and dildo store, both of which appeared in press coverage.
McKinnon impersonated Giuliani on the Weekend Update portion of the show, grunting and contorting her hands.
“Did you see my press conference today?” McKinnon’s Giuliani asked Weekend Update host Colin Jost. “It was at the Four Seasons. Fancy.”
“Yeah, it sounds fancy but it was at a landscaping company called Four Seasons. Was that a mistake?” Jost inquired.
No!” McKinnon’s Giuliani barked. “Anyway, I’m glad I made it to this show on time because first I went to 30 Rocks. That’s a granite quarry in New Rochelle.”
Both McKinnon and Jost struggled to maintain composure during the skit, perhaps because both sensed nobody could invent anything funnier than the actual presser itself.
Have a look and see what we mean.
