This past week, former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin was in the news, so you know what that means? Former head writer and forever Saturday Night Live queen Tina Fey is stopping by the show’s cold open.
Wearing one of the craziest, sparkly, shaky cardigans we’ve ever seen, Fey took the stage with Darrell Hammond, who once again reprised his role as Donald Trump. Palin endorsed the current presidential nominee earlier this week, and Fey showed up to skewer that. But really it was all about listening to Fey slip seamlessly back into this role without missing a beat. It feels like 2008 all over again!
The big joke of this sketch — and this is exactly how SNL describes it — is that Palin is crazy. Taking a break from her full time job writing things on Facebook, she rambles on, and on, about nothing and everything at the same time. As Trump notes, “It’s like her mouth starts driving before her brain gets in the car.”
She’s stopped by to stump for the candidate, because she’s, not surprisingly, been promised a spot in his cabinet. As Palin quips, “I belong in a cabinet ’cause I’m full of spice and I’ve got a great rack.”
The whole sketch is worth a watch, but if you’ve really only got six seconds, this is all you need to see:
And since we’re still a whole 10 MONTHS away from this year’s election, let’s hope that Fey finds time to stop by SNL one, or fifteen, more times.
