Kate McKinnon's Rudy Giuliani Explains Trump's Election Lawsuit Strategy on SNL

Kate McKinnon's Rudy Giuliani stopped by Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" desk to discuss the legal strategies for President Donald Trump's election lawsuits.

On Saturday, when networks called the election for Joe Biden, the president's lawyer held a press conference in the parking lot of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping company threatening more legal action—one the president had initially mistakenly touted as taking place at the upscale Four Seasons hotel in Philadelphia.

Hours later, McKinnon was back portraying Giuliani on SNL, mocking that mishap.

"Did you see my press conference today?" McKinnon's Giuliani asked Weekend Update host Colin Jost. "It was at the Four Seasons. Fancy!"

Jost noted that it was actually held at a landscaping company, not the hotel. "Was that a mistake?" Jost asked McKinnon's Giuliani.

"What? No!" McKinnon's Giuliani said, then added: "Anyway, I'm glad I made it to the show on time. First I went to 30 Rocks. That's a granite quarry in New Rochelle."

Then McKinnon's Giuliani went on to explain how the Trump team plans to fight the election outcome in the courts after the president continued to baselessly claim that widespread voter fraud had taken place.

"Listen to me, I got tons of strategies. First, we're going to throw out bogus mail-in ballots... these ballots, they could be coming from Mars!" McKinnon's Giuliani said.

While that sounds like a joke crafted for SNL, Giuliani actually made the remark about ballots coming from Mars at a press conference on Wednesday.

"That is a real thing that you really did say," Jost noted.

"That's right," McKinnon's Giuliani said. "So we're gonna demand that we look at all the names… if the name is Meep Thorp Xandar and the address is Mars, we're going to get those ballots thrown out."

McKinnon's Giuliani continued that some ballots might actually be tortillas."We're gonna eat them and see if they're tortillas," she said. "If my butt blows after I eat it, you know that's a tortilla."

Jost then asked: "What actual legal recourse do you have to challenge these results?"

McKinnon's response reflected how little coherence there has been to the Trump team's legal challenges.

"In Michigan, we demanded a recount," she said. "In Wisconsin, we have demanded a de-count. We called backsies in Nevada, we got safety in Arizona, and in Georgia: Opposite Day. Plus, we're gonna demand that I do the recount personally and our silver bullet is... I can't count very high."

McKinnon's Giuliani added that "also, we're suing all the states."

"You're suing all the states for what?" Jost asked.

"I don't know, child support? Manslaughter? I don't know!" McKinnon's Giuliani replied.

McKinnon's Giuliani also accused pollsters of being paid to lie to the American people.

"They're always saying, like, 'Hey baby, I'm Cinnamon. My real name is Brittany. Shh... don't tell them I told you,'" McKinnon's Giuliani said. "And then you find out her name ain't Brittany!"

But after a moment, Jost confirmed McKinnon's Giuliani was actually taking about strippers. "Yeah, strippers, pollsters," McKinnon's Giuliani said.

But if all the legal bids fail and Trump is unable to secure a second term, McKinnon's Giuliani explained that he'll simply return to the city "that made me"—New York City, the city Giuliani was once the mayor of.

"I will be fine," McKinnon's Giuliani said. "I will move back to the city that made me. Hey New York, Daddy's home, ya miss me?"
