In the sketch, pals played by host and “Atlanta” star Donald Glover, Aidy Bryant, Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong and Beck Bennett try mightily to stay silent so they won’t be picked off by monsters alerted to their presence by sound — just like in Jon Krasinski’s film “A Quiet Place.”
But Glover can’t shut up about tweets he’s reading on his phone by Kanye.
“You guys, Kanye just tweeted,” Glover says excitedly. “He said he would have voted for Trump.” Thompson finally exclaims when he sees Kanye’s MAGA hat on Glover’s phone: “Oh, come on, Kanye!” And he’s snatched by a monster.
“Kanye is a distraction. We should only talk about what’s important,” Bryant insists.
“Like how to survive the monsters,” Bennett points out.
“And then I guess, also, like, the midterms because what’s happening with that?” Bryant asks.
Strong vanishes after she mouths off about Chrissy Tiegen’s friendship with Kanye and Tiegen’s baby shower. Then Bryant mulls aloud about the “poopity scoop” lyric in the new Kanye song “Lift Yourself” as she plays it on Glover’s phone. Gone.
Bennett is snatched when he can’t shut up about Kanye’s observation that slavery was a “choice.”
Glover’s the last to go.
