1. F*ck Trump.

Nice epitaph on SNL's part for their season finale, even though we will still be dealing with him when they come back from summer break. Which makes it premature.

As I said elsewhere, If Kate McKinnon's version breaks your heart into a million pieces, this one won't have the same effect on you. It just made me angry we're where we are now, and I'm deeply sensitive.

3. I did see the Kate McKinnon version and that really was a heartbreaker

And I think this was intended to be a reminder of that one, though with an entirely different cast of characters - but we have to know where their sentiments lie. And with the list of Trump offensives growing by the day, we never know. Evert time you think it can't possibly get worse, he manages to top himself. I'm continually shocked and horrified that it's been allowed to go on this long...

10. I wasn't clear, really.

They did a good job! It just made me think, which was a part of their intention I suspect.

Their intention, in my option was to send out the message to Trump he was done, whether he accept that fact yet or not. They delivered their message well!

13. Now that you mention it, I think you're right.

It may have been a goodbye to all those characters they certainly enjoyed doing - since (hopefully) they would no longer be relevant or necessary when SNL resumes in the fall.

27. I laughed till I cried.

I think it was brilliant .
What was there to say after the election but a sad goodbye Hillary?

This was a perfect "it's over" message both to the actors and the politicians.

26. The Kate McKinnon version was a heartbreaker and so real. I've watched it many times.

4. Oh crap! Sorry about that! I'm wondering if there's another version available

This one appears to be the official one, so I thought it was the best one to post.

6. It probably WAS the best one to post

The unavailability abroad was probably embedded for copyright reasons by NBC. Another link might work where NBC's won't.

5. You need a VPN.

They can get you around such issues. You may be familiar with them in work environments, but you can use one personally when overseas to view US content as well.

7. WOW !! You're right! It worked!

I have a VPN that I only use for work to get into data bases back in Dallas. I hooked it up, and the video played right away.

Thanks for the tip!

11. That was brilliant.

Of course it made all of us think of Kate's version, which was also a tribute to Leonard Cohen.

Let this be the beginning of the end for 45.

12. I agree, thought it was quite effective, especially if you saw the previous version.

Apparently ratings for SNL have gone way up this season - and with good reason. Between Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon - and Melissa McCarthy, LOL, the Trump phenomenon has been perfect for them. Though I'd hardly be disappointed if this was their last chance to ridicule him - and his minions.

15. To hear 3 more great Trump parody songs, I have some no one has heard yet (JUST finished)

Go here: http://www.jango.com/music/The+Freedom+Toast

The three new ones are "Dumb Down" (a parody of "Downtown", "In D.C." (a parody of the George Benson version of "On Broadway",
and "Washington, D.C." (a parody of Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee).

Fans of George Benson and Petula Clark will be blown away by the sound-alikes, and the musicianship is AMAZING!

16. Oh, thank you!

We're going to need this in the next few weeks! As long as Trump is around, we're going to miss Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon, not to mention Melissa McCarthy. I think many of us have been rooting for Sean Spicer to stick around simply because of the parody!

19. These are wonderful, exactly what we need about now!

I particularly liked the "Dumb Down" one, made me laugh, but maybe it's because I always liked the original.

24. Nicely adapted.

I hope George Benson is OK with our version of "On Broadway (In D.C.)"

17. Marvelous! Stupendous! Thank God for SNL!!!!! My savior this past year.

My God, how talented those writers and the staffers are. And Alec Baldwin was a Godsend! Scarlet Johanson was perfectly cast to be "complicit." And thank God for Kate McKinnon! Wow! Is there ANYTHING or ANYONE she can't do?

This is one of the main differences between liberals and conservatives. Liberals have a MUCH better sense of humor, and have the talent to pull it off. And they LOVE a good laugh.

20. I completely agree! I wish they'd stick around in the coming weeks for as long as we need them!

And it's not like they'd run out of material! Alec Baldwin didn't hold back, he couldn't have been better! As for Kate McKinnon, she is a rare talent. Female, male, old, young, she nails it every time. More than once, I didn't immediately realize it was her!

The one who really sang "Hillaretha" is the one in the middle of the "back-up" singers in the video

28. SNL saying goodbye to the criminal cabal,

banking that they'll be gone next season. Although I think this national nightmare is going to be longer than that.

Spicey would have been a nice touch, but I'm sure Melissa McCarthy has a day job or two.
