Former President Donald Trump made a musical appearance on the April 10th episode of "Saturday Night Live" to joke about his legal woes and propose a new fundraising idea. The cold open featured a music-focused spoof that included shoutouts to Taylor Swift, Alanis Morissette, Ice Spice, and Ice Spice.
In the skit, Trump admitted he had broken the law and joked about going quietly to prison. However, he quickly turned his attention to his latest idea for raising funds – music. The former president then proceeded to deliver a hip-jerking rendition of The Black Crowes' “Hard to Handle” followed by a duet with Don King playing Kenan Thompson of Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton classic “Islands in the Stream.” After singing the lyric, “How can we be wrong?”, Trump interjected, ‘I've never been wrong!’
The show also tackled Trump's recent indictment with Michael Che pranking Colin Jost for April Fools' Day during their Weekend Update segment. Other guests on the show included former president James Austin Johnson and former "Abbott Elementary" star Quinta Brunson.
Musical guests Lil Yachty and Michael Che also performed during the episode. In addition to comedy sketches about road rage and sexual harassment, there was also a parody documentary exploring how women are often sucked into cult-like practices when being part of wedding parties.
Overall, it was an eventful episode filled with political commentary mixed in with humor and musical performances.
