In a surreal — yet too genuine — minute on Saturday Night Live this evening, Jessica Chastain intentionally broke character as a talk program host to lament, what even matters any longer?
Chastain seemingly plays host Veronica Elders, quizzing entrants played by Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, and Kenan Thompson on whether relevant things President Trump has actually stated or done just recently even rate amongst his base or the media today.
Not remarkably, absolutely nothing does.
Even theoretical circumstances, nevertheless objectively dreadful, do not matter.
“The president fires Robert Mueller, the extremely guy examining him for treason. Does it even matter?” host Veronica asks.
“He hasn’t done that yet,” Strong’s character clarifies.
“Yeah, however he’s going to, so you understand, when he does, will it even matter?” Veronica continues, ringing out Strong’s response when she recommends that, regardless of the truth that it would cross a line, it would make a lick of distinction.
The wheels begin to fall off when Veronica creates increasingly more over-the-top future occasions, quiting on the video game program format completely to down a bottle of wine while the candidates compose their own nutso tips of exactly what the president might do that would potentially cause any sort of effects.
That’s when McKinnon informs Chastain — not “Veronica” — she does not need to do this.
“Jessica, we understand you’re distressed about the method our nation’s going, however you cannot simply, like, develop an entire video game program set and make us pretend to be participants,” Strong includes.
“I’m sorry men, it simply appears like absolutely nothing matters any longer,” Chastain — not “Veronica” — states.
She concludes the program with a group hug.
It’s been a year. We might all utilize a hug.
