Tom Hanks Plays Trump Supporter, Impresses on ‘Black Jeopardy’
Tom Hanks was brilliant on Saturday Night Live. Hosting alongside Lady Gaga, Hanks participated in yet another Presidential debate spoof, and impressed host Darnell Hayes (Kenan Thompson) on a segment of “Black Jeopardy.”
In the sketch, Tom Hanks plays the only white contestant, Doug, who is rather appropriately dressed in a “Make America Great Again” cap. Host Darnell jokes whether or not Doug is on the right show, to which he replies – “they told me a fella could win some money, so let’s get ‘er done.”
Still skeptical, Darnell introduces the categories of the game show – like Big Girls, Mm… I Don’t Know, You Better, White People – and Doug, surprisingly, turns out to be a great contestant. Here are some of our favorite responses from Doug (Tom Hanks).
Darnell: They out here saying the new iPhone wants your thumbprint “for your protection.”
Doug: I don’t think so. That’s how they get ya. I read that goes straight to the government.
Darnell: Well, damn… Not bad, Doug!
Doug: Big Girls for $200.
Darnell: Skinny women can do this for you. Doug!
Doug: What is not a god damn thing?
Darnell: You damn right!
As the show went on, the host and contestants fell in love with Doug thanks to his swift responses. All good things must come to an end, however.
Darnell: Let’s take a look at our final jeopardy category – Lives That Matter.
Doug: *stands in silence*
Darnell: Well, it was good while it lasted, Doug!
