Brad Pitt on SNL at-home channels as Dr. Fauci
Brad Pitt on SNL: The show is back for another “At Home” edition of the late-night comedy sketch show.
All cast members are co-operating one more time from home amid the US coronavirus outbreak and world pandemic.
This week’s cold open highlighted a celebrity cameo from Brad Pitt presenting as Dr. Anthony Fauci. During the SNL Cold Open, Pitt’s Fauci clarified various comments of President Donald Trump.
President’s recent comments concerning COVID-19 that went viral aren’t few.
“Yes, the president has taken some liberties with our guidelines,” Pitt’s Fauci said on the show. “So tonight, I would like to explain what the president was trying to say.”
To begin, Pitt’s Fauci said that when Trump said: “everyone can get a test, what he meant was almost no one.”
Pitt then proceeded to a video clip of the president announcing his administration had done an “incredible job” and COVID-19 will “disappear one day, like a miracle.”
“A miracle is great. Who doesn’t like miracles,” Pitt stated, before continuing, “Miracles shouldn’t be Plan A.”
Brad Pitt faked Dr.Anthony Fauci on SNL
After Trump’s broadcasted statement about UV light and disinfectant injections, Brad-as-Fauci grimaced: “I know I’m not supposed to touch my face, but …”
After a few more expected ridicules, Pitt whipped off his wig and honored America’s frontline health-care warriors, praising them. And Dr. Fauci’s “calm and clarity” before saying: “Live, kinda, from all across America, it’s Saturday night!”
“First, I’d like to thank all the older women in America who have sent me supportive, inspiring, and sometimes graphic e-mails,” Pitt as Fauci stated.
Pitt’s Fauci then interpreted that there’s been a lot of misinformation out there on the coronavirus. He then said: “yes, the President has taken some liberties with our guidelines.”
He then stated he’d like to clarify what President Trump was “trying to say.” “And remember, let’s all keep an open mind,” Pitt’s Fauci stated.
The SNL with Brad Pitt then continued. He showed clips of Trump lecturing about the virus outbreak. The first had Trump stating that the country would have a vaccine “relatively soon.”
“Relatively soon is an interesting phrase. Relative to the entire history of earth? Sure, the vaccine is going to come real fast,” Pitt’s Fauci stated during the show. “But if you were going to tell a friend, ‘I’ll be over relatively soon’ and then showed up a year and a half later, well, your friend may be relatively pissed off.”
He also had “a couple of things” to say about the situation of the US tests. First, he stated he didn’t know if he would describe the test as “beautiful unless your idea of ‘beautiful’ is having a cotton swab tickle your brain.”
Moreover to this, he intended to mention that “almost no one can get a test.”
“Yeah, I’m getting fired,” he said. “But until then, I’m going to be there, putting out the facts for whoever’s listening. And when I hear things like, ‘The virus can be cured if everyone takes the Tide Pod challenge, I’ll be there to say, ‘Please don’t.’”
‘SNL’ isn’t dying from the coronavirus!
“A miracle would be great! Who doesn’t love miracles? But miracles shouldn’t be Plan A,” Pitt’s Fauci said. “Even (Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger) tried to land at the airport first.”
“When I hear things like the virus can be cured if everyone takes the Tide Pod Challenge, I’ll be there to say, ‘please don’t,” Pitt’s Fauci continued.
After that, Pitt took off his faking wig and had a serious message for those watching at home.
“And to the real Dr. Fauci, thank you for your calm and your clarity in this unnerving time,” Pitt said. “And thank you to the medical workers, first responders, and their families for being on the front line.”
“And now, live, kinda, from all across America, it’s Saturday night,” Pitt replied.
“Oh, Brad Pitt, of course,” Fauci said with a chuckle. Another actor showed up. He has been floated as a possible SNL Fauci, is Ben Stiller, Camerota remarked.
