Published Nov 08, 2015Following recent, poorly danced "Hotline Bling" parodies from NDP leader Tom Mulcair and U.S. Democrat Bernie Sanders, Republican candidate hopeful Donald Trump used his appearance on this weekend's Saturday Night Live to likewise flex some questionable moves. It was one of many music-minded moments on last night's (November 7) broadcast, and the sketch is streaming online now.
As you'll see down below, actor Jay Pharoah does his best 6 God impersonation to deliver self-aware lines about being a clumsy dancer and meme-fodder. "Bet your father dance like me," he raps before an onslaught of rhythm-less teachers, dads and Martin Short's Ed Grimley character bust out the "sneaky fish," the "miracle whip" and more.
During the parody, the Donald plays a "tax guy" and swerves his hips.
The show also featured a twist on M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls" video that found cast members living on the edge by stealing soda at fast food restaurants, leaving ice cream cartons in uncool places, and practising some irregular wiping methods.
The night also featured a pair of performances from Sia.
You'll find the skits down below, while Sia's televised takes of "Alive" and "Bird Set Free" are not yet streaming in Canada.
