Well isn’t that SPECIAL?! Dana Carvey brought back his beloved, legendary Church Lady character to ‘SNL’ for a very important reason: to chat with Ted Cruz and Donald Trump! Click through to watch the epic sketch!
Church Lady, how we’ve missed you! Dana Carvey brought the amazing character back on Saturday Night Live‘s May 7 episode, hosting a very special episode of Church Chat during SNL‘s cold open. The Church Lady interviewed Ted Cruz (Taran Killam) and Donald Trump (Darrell Hammond), and let’s say she just wasn’t too…nice. Click through to watch the hilarious sketch!
Ted may be a devout Christian, but that doesn’t get him off the hook with the Church Lady. In fact, he’s even a little too much for her! Firstly, this is how she introduces him: “My first guest is someone we’ve talked about quite a bit on Church Chat, but we’ve never met face to face. Please welcome, Satan.” Omg! She’s referencing the fact that John Boehner actually referred to Ted as “lucifer in the flesh.” Damn!
After Ted talks about his faith, and says that his campaign was all part of God’s plan for him, she replies: “was it God’s plan for you to get humiliated by an orange mannequin?” She ends their chat by calling him “Ted man walking.” It’s good to have you back, Church Lady!
She then welcomes to the show “the presumptive republican divorcee — I mean nominee, the tangerine tornado,” — Trump! The two have a nice little conversation about beliefs and politics. Trump, of course, swears he knows everything about the Bible, and has read every book. His favorite is Genesis: 2 Genesis 2 Furious! “Like it says: Love thy neighbor, love thy self. And like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.” So good.
Church Lady then invites out Trump’s family: Melania, Ivanka — and a third woman? As it turns out, she’s “just another model” hanging around the Trumps. “It likes all kinds of flesh, doesn’t it?” the Church Lady asks the camera. She asks if he’s found a vice presidential candidate yet, and brings back another legendary line: “could it be…SATAN?” Cue Ted returning as ACTUAL satan after people called him it so many time!
