SNL: Tom Hanks plays Black Jeopardy as Donald Trump supporter

Posted on

Saturday Night Live brought back “Black Jeopardy” this weekend with a special guest: host Tom Hanks as Doug, a Donald Trump supporter decked out in an eagle T-shirt, jean jacket, and a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap. 

While this seemed like a recipe for disaster, Doug performed surprisingly well, proving that maybe even the most politically opposite voters have more in common than they think. “They told me a fella can win some money, so let’s win me some money. Get ‘er done,” Doug said. 

Host Darnell Hayes (Keenan Thompson) and contestants Keeley (Sasheer Zamata) and Shanice (Leslie Jones) were pleasantly surprised by Doug’s correct answers… until the end. While thriving in the “Big Girls,” “Mm…I Don’t Know,” and “You Better” categories, Darnell had to go to commercial break when he introduced “Lives Matter.”
