Chance the Rapper, Kenan Thompson, and Leslie Jones channeled Run-D.M.C.’s “Christmas in Hollis” for “Jingle Barack,” an SNL musical tribute to “the first, maybe last, black president” and “the last Christmas before Trump next year.”

In addition to host Casey Affleck breakdancing as Jesus, Chance and Thompson rap, “Hey, kids, enjoy the presents while you can ’cause next year you might get a bomb from Iran. Look, ma’am, we got birth control under the tree and we’re stuffing every stocking with legal weed.”

Darryl McDaniels — D.M.C. himself — makes a cameo as Chance’s dad. “Never trust a white dude wearing no red hat,” he warns, before Santa appears wearing Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” cap. Elsewhere, Jones’ verse was inspired by Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop,” singing, “Here I go again. Girls, what’s my weakness? Him! Joe Biden.”

Watch the full sketch below.

Chance the Rapper appeared as SNL‘s musical guest this weekend with performances of “Finish Line/Drown” and “Same Drugs.” He was also the musical guest on the series last year when Chris Hemsworth hosted and guested on Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” during Melissa McCarthy’s hosting turn this past February.

The original late-night comedy sketch show from the one and only Lorne Michaels.
