Donald Trump sadly sings ‘macho man’ on the piano as Jim Carrey reprises Ace Ventura to call the president a ‘loser’ in SNL cold open after Biden won the election
- SNL spoofed Joe Biden’s acceptance speech, and sent up Trump’s concession
- Alec Baldwin sang ‘Macho Man’ on the piano while debating his future
- Maya Rudolph as Kamala Harris got her phone out to dance at the podium
- Carrey delighted fans with his Ace Ventura reprisal, calling Trump a ‘loser’
The episode was hosted by Dave Chappelle, who also hosted the first show after Hillary Clinton lost in 2016.
In that earlier episode, the show opened with Kate McKinnon as Clinton, playing the piano and singing Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ in a sorrowful acceptance of her loss.
Saturday’s show picked up where McKinnon left off, only this time with Trump singing a downbeat version of the Village People’s song.

Beck Bennett played Wolf Blitzer, announcing Biden’s victory
The cold open showed with Beck Bennett as CNN’s Wolf Blitzer announcing Joe Biden’s victory.
‘I know I’m supposed to be a neutral news anchor, but God damn it, that feels good!’ Blitzer said.
Jim Carrey reprised his role as Biden, saying: ‘I’ve never felt so alive. Which is ironic, as I’m not that alive.’
He promised to ‘be your president’, welcoming Maya Rudolph as Kamala Harris, who listed her ‘firsts’ – wearing the white pant suit and silk blouse that the vice president-elect wore earlier on Saturday to deliver her Delaware speech.
‘Like Joe, I am humbled and honored to be the first female, the first black, the first Indian-American, and the first biracial vice president,’ she said.
‘And if any of that terrifies you, well, I don’t give a funt.
‘Also, my husband will be the first Second Gentleman, and he’s Jewish, so between us we check more boxes than a disqualified ballot.’
The pair danced – sending up Harris’ campaign trail dance moves.
Maya Rudolph will continue to play Harris throughout the next four years, it is thought

Carrey dug his Ace Ventura character out of the cupboard to call Trump a ‘loser’
Baldwin, Carrey and Rudolph reprised their roles as the three political leaders
‘It’s Saturday Night Live!’ the trio yelled to close the cold open
Alec Baldwin then came on as Trump.
‘Stop the count! Stop the count!’ he chanted, from the White House podium.
‘Oh – what’s that? I’m behind? Count every vote! Count every vote!’ he said.
He then took to the piano, singing mournfully ‘Macho Man’.
He told the audience he chose the song to ‘to remind you who I really am’.
‘I’m not going to say goodbye, America,’ he said at the end.
‘I’m just going to say, ‘See you in court!’
Carey, reprising his Ace Ventura character, then called Trump a ‘loser’, to the delight of his fans.
