An imperial treat!
And here’s just a fraction of the love people had for it.
I’ve not seen a sketch land so nimbly and perfectly on SNL as this in years. Proper crafted writing. And the fact it’s Nate Bargatze as GW- relative unknown, first time host- is wonderful. Proper star is born moment for me. https://t.co/EzIKfSNszG

‘You asked about temperature.’
Just perfection. https://t.co/eUlwvHRbxD

Against all expectation, I enjoyed this. I should recalibrate my curmudgeonly expectations a tad. https://t.co/BahXhRnuGU

"You asked about the temperature."
"I did not!"
This is so good. Here's how to understand America, my British friends. https://t.co/GfrUcWd2Sl

And just in case you were wondering …
I desperately need for people to know that this sketch was written by @streetseidell.
From "Google is a Guy" to this. Truly one of the best sketch writers to ever live. https://t.co/Q1N5OA7fiH
