‘Saturday Night Live’ held no punches last night as it continued its ongoing assault of Donald Trump. While this sketch was about celebrating the Obama years, Kenan Thompson and Chance the Rapper take digs at the president-elect throughout by contrasting the two politicians in a rap inspired by Run D.M.C.’s ‘Christmas in Hollis’.

Leslie Jones joins in to deliver a hysterical verse about her crush on Joe Biden, and Casey Affleck and D.M.C. also both make cameo appearances.

While your political views may influence how you feel about this sketch, it’s great to see such a tribute being paid to the pioneers of hip-hop known as Run D.M.C.
