Dana Carvey does a tremendous Donald Trump impression

Posted on

TBS

If Saturday Night Live needs another Donald Trump impersonator, Dana Carvey has it covered.

The former cast member was a guest on Tuesday’s episode of Conan, and showed off his impression of the Republican candidate for president. “I don’t know where it’s going,” Carvey said to host Conan O’Brien of the impersonation, before joking about what Trump would sound like after starting World War III. “We had a fabulous nuclear war. It was fabulous. Tremendous nuclear war,” Carvey said, affecting Trump’s familiar voice. “Your bunkers are terrific. Your bunkers are fabulous. The Chinese bunkers are a disaster.”

When Saturday Night Live kicked off its 41st season, cast member Taran Killam was the show’s go-to Trump. But as the year wore on and Trump became a key political figure, Darrell Hammond — the former SNL Trump and current announcer for the sketch comedy show — took the job back from Killam. Hammond, of course, wasn’t the only non-cast member to have such a prominent role on the show, as Larry David was called on multiple times to handle Bernie Sanders. (Carvey does a Sanders too, for what it’s worth, should David get a little busy.)
