The skit opened with Beck Bennett, playing the role of CNN host Jake Tapper, reporting on the endorsement of Carson endorsing Trump.
Darrell Hammond, playing Trump, said: “My guest today is so tremendous. Dr. Ben Carson is a very special man. And for once, I don’t mean that as an insult to the mentally challenged.”
Jay Pharoah, playing Carson, responded: “Yes, Donald and I are very different. We’re like night and day, ebony and orangey. Sure, we’ve had our — you know, we’ve had our polite disagreements. I question his knowledge on health care, and he called me a psycho and a child molester.”
The fake news clip then cut to an actor playing Bernie Sanders, but cut back to the Trump rally after an “incident of violence.” It was revealed Trump supporters had mistaken Carson for a protester.
“Guys, what did I say? Not this one. This is one of the good ones!” Hammond’s Trump proclaimed.
