"I hope nobody's allergic to nuts because we've got a big one here", says Darrell Hammond's Trump
Comedian Tina Fey reprised her role as Sarah Palin for the opening skit on last night’s Saturday Night Live (January 23), in a parody of Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump as Republican Presidential candidate.
Palin joined Trump in Iowa on Tuesday (January 19) and gave a speech which included a rhyming segment some have compared to Iggy Azalea’s freestyle.
This segment – “Right-wingin’, bitter clingin’ proud clingers of our guns, our god and our religion” – is parodied by Fey, who adds “…quoth the Lorax” to her rhyme-filled speech.
The skit intercuts Palin’s words with commentary by Darrell Hammond’s Trump, including, “I hope nobody’s allergic to nuts because we’ve got a big one here. She’s two Corinthians short of a Bible.”
See the whole skit below:
Last year Palin hit back at Tina Fey in a spoof trailer of Fey’s hit sitcom 30 Rock, as an advert for her new book.
In the clip entitled 31 Rock, which you can watch below, the former vice-presidential candidate mocks Fey’s character Liz Lemon through Lyn Melon, a scatty writer dealing with her dysfunctional colleagues.
Fey’s parody of Palin was one of the highlights of the 2008 presidential campaign as the comic dressed up to mimic the vice-presidential candidate each week on Saturday Night Live.
Elsewhere, there’s also a cameo from 30 Rock actor Kevin Brown, Palin’s former running mate John McCain who appears in the Alec Baldwin role, and Republican senator Lindsay Graham.
