John Mulaney Hosted "SNL," And His Monologue Sparked A Mixed Reaction Online https://t.co/x67jcBUPJW— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) November 1, 2020
ONTD Fave John Mulaney’s opening monologue received some backlash on social media. After joking about COVID-19 and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mulaney told viewers, “Oh, yes, I’m supposed to make an announcement. On November 3rd there is an elderly man contest.”
“So there’s two elderly men and you’re supposed to pick your favorite of the elderly men,” he continued. “You can put it in the mail or you can go and write down which elderly man you like and we’ll add them all up. Then we might have the same elderly man or we might have a new elderly man.”
“But just rest assured, no matter what happens, nothing much will change in the United States,” he said, inexplicably. “The rich will continue to prosper while the poor languish. Families will be upended by mental illness and drug addiction. Jane Lynch will continue to book lots of projects.”
Reactions were mixed with some people saying Mulaney was downplaying the election taking a both sides approach. Others believed John was just telling it like it is.
