'Saturday Night Live' offers prayers for Trump

“Saturday Night Live” cast member Kate McKinnon resumed her role as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi in the Dec. 7 episode to offer a few prayers for Donald Trump.
During the “Weekend Update” segment, co-anchor and “SNL” co-head writer Colin Jost first commented on Pelosi being asked if she hated President Trump during her most recent weekly press conference. Jost noted that she fell back on her religion, saying that Catholics don’t hate anyone. Jost, though, said that if this was really being handled the way Catholics deal with things, Trump would just be quietly switched to a different TK.
But a little later in the segment, McKinnon’s Pelosi took the stage to address the issue first-hand, noting first that she doesn’t know “who self-identifies as a journalist these days.” She also pointed out that she is “not impeaching Trump because I hate him — I’m impeaching Trump because rules.” To further explain this point, she added: “It is Trump’s fault. It’s not the lifeguard’s fault for evacuating the pool; it’s the rich kid, for taking a dook in the deep end.”
But when Jost said he has heard Pelosi prays for Trump, McKinnon admitted that is true and decided to say a prayer for him right there on stage. She bowed her heads, clasped her hands together, and the lights changed color around her.
“If he has to be president, please make him be a little better at any of it,” she began. “And please take him — not to Heaven, just somewhere else, just for a little while. Mama needs a break.”
