SNL: Cecily Strong’s Kimberly Guilfoyle Hijacks Trump’s NFT Grift
The cold open of ‘Saturday Night Live’—the last before the holidays, and Strong’s final episode ever—featured James Austin Johnson’s Trump scamming his fans with pricey NFTs.
Prior to the start of December 17’s Saturday Night Live, the sketch-comedy show announced on its Instagram that this would be Cecily Strong’s last appearance on the show after 11 years of hilarious service.
But before we could get to her big send-off, SNL dropped a cold open featuring Donald Trump (James Austin Johnson) hawking his NFT collection—a choice that even got the former president roundly mocked by some of his closest allies.
“We call them nifties cause they’re so neat,” Trump explained. “They feature incredible artwork pertaining to my life and my career. For example, when I was an astronaut, or riding a big elephant. Trump cards are each ninety-nine dollars. Seems like a lot, seems like a scam, and in many ways it is, but we love the Trump cards. We just love them. You can also get ‘em for free by just going online and looking at them. Maybe taking a screenshot. I don’t know.”
“And the best part is: each card comes with an automatic chance to win an exclusive mystery prize where you get to pick anything out of this nice box,” he continued, holding a crate overflowing with classified information.
Trump then introduced his “third least embarrassing child,” Donald Trump Jr. (Mikey Day), to help him with the sales pitch.
“I know what you’re thinking: ninety-nine dollars? You can get two grams for that!” Don Jr. exclaimed, before introducing a Christmas CD he’s selling from his fiancée, Kimberly Guilfoyle.
