Christmas definitely won't be this cheery with Trump in office.

 

This past Saturday, Chance the Rapper served as musical guest on the most recent episode and season finale of Saturday Night Live. The timeless sketch comedy show enlisted Chance for a hilarious holiday themed segment, which pays tribute to Run DMC's "Christmas in Hollis" by way of hip-hop cadence, full adidas tracksuits, and Christmas raps.

The song featured in the sketch celebrates the last Christmas with Barack Obama serving as President of the United States. It also touches on the feeling of impending doom a lot of us feel as a result of Donald Trump’s imminent presidency. The writers also poked at Trump’s ignorance about climate change, his stances on immigration, and just about everything related to his foreign policy knowledge (or lack thereof).

Get in the Christmas spirit by watching Chance’s hilarious parody here.
