Tom Hanks mocks Trump supporters in ‘SNL’ skit


Tom Hanks played a supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during a skit on “Saturday Night Live.”

{mosads}”Doug,” a contestant on the game show “Black Jeopardy,” sports a signature “Make America Great Again” hat. Hanks’s character, a conspiracy theorist, distrusts the electoral system.

“They out here saying that every vote counts,” one of the questions in the game reads.

“What is, ‘C’mon, they already decided who wins, even before it happens,’ ” answers Hanks, who said earlier this month that he was “offended as a man” by Trump’s lewd talk about groping women without their consent in a leaked video from 2005.

The late-night comedy show appeared to be mocking Trump’s claims that the election is being rigged against him. During the third presidential debate of 2016, the GOP nominee refused to say whether he would accept the results of the presidential election.

During the segment, Hanks’s character begins to form a bond with the other contestants and the host of the game show. But at the end of the game, the host introduces the final “Jeopardy” category: “Lives that Matter.”

“Well, it was good while it lasted, Doug,” the host of the show says.

“You know, I got a lot to say about this,” Doug responds.

“Yea, I’m sure you do,” the host says. “When we come back, we’ll play the national anthem and just see what the hell happens.”
