View this video on YouTube youtube.com He started off by thanking the first responders in the audience and saying he was glad to see people wearing masks, even though masks made him miss his favorite part about living in New York. NBC From there, the monologue got increasingly political, with John calling the upcoming election an "elderly man contest"... NBC ...before saying that "no matter what happens, nothing much will change in the United States." NBC Then he made some jokes about voting... NBC ...some of which were about his 94-year-old grandma. NBC He immediately backtracked and apologized for making an ageist joke, but then doubled down on his point. NBC Reactions were mixed, to say the least. Some people thought John was making light of the election and playing both sides. Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 @cmclymer "Nothing will change" from the outcome of the election? Really, John Mulaney? Even as a joke? Okay then. #SNL 03:49 AM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Adam Parkhomenko @AdamParkhomenko Mulaney is funny but I’m never gonna forget this gutless both sides bullshit the weekend before the most important election in American history. https://t.co/gQqPVuWNpq 05:42 PM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Patrick Thanksgiving @lunch_enjoyer Shocked and appalled at what John Mulaney said on his SNL monologue. I feel as though they should do away with the monologue all together. The celebrity guest should just stand on the stage and people clap for them, thats it. 02:17 PM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Robert Holzer @RobertHolzer @tomwatson Bill Burr: My SNL monologue was a horror show. John Mulaney: Hold my beer. 04:11 PM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Kiki voted and thinks you should too @AndEspeciallyFU "Nothing's going to change" is a horrible take to say on live tv 3 days before an election where we need as many people to vote as possible. @mulaney #SNL 04:20 AM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Others thought John was telling a hard-to-hear truth. peaches, @ftthenarrative @cmclymer John Mulaney saying nothing Much will change: 05:47 AM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite gaming disorder pawg @roun_sa_ville how many libs are going apeshit at John mulaney right now for telling the truth 05:29 AM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite beth, alien uprising enthusiast👽 @bourgeoisalien John Mulaney is a brilliant comedian. Been a fan of his for years, and he's never been a political comedian. So, that he laid down the truth last night about American inequality, and our corrupt duopoly is pretty extraordinary. 03:39 PM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Abby Govindan @abbygov I can’t believe the first time John Mulaney is controversial is for saying the most non controversial thing on the planet 06:32 PM - 01 Nov 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite What are your thoughts on John's monologue?
