 An innocuous picture of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Presidential candidate – Nana Akufo Addo – sipping Kalyppo fruit juice, dating back to 2012 recently shared on social media to perhaps ridicule him, because of the drink’s popularity with kids etc., has mutated into the opposite of what was anticipated with many now sharing pictures of their own ‘Kalyppo moments’ to show their solidarity with the NPP leader.

Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton Debate Cold Open - SNL


Saturday Night Live” kicked off its 42nd season with all eyes on Alec Baldwin as he played Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for the first time.

The show’s cold open played off the first presidential debate and featured recent Emmy-winner Kate McKinnon reprising her much-lauded Hillary Clinton impression and Michael Che as moderator Lester Holt. The sketch, which NBC had promoted earlier in the week, interspersed references from the candidates’ real lives with the show’s signature comedic zingers — this time about Trump’s taxes, Clinton’s sometimes-impersonal demeanor and what some have called the general absurdity of this election.

It was clear Baldwin did his homework in his excellent mimicry of Trump's speech and body language in the sketch. He appeared comfortable on the fast-paced live show — and he should have been, having hosted 'SNL' a record 16 times.

The cold open poked fun at Clinton's recent bout with pneumonia with McKinnon walking in coughing and holding a cane, which she quickly ditches to go into a Willy Wonka-esque somersault.

Baldwin's take on Trump was a fairly standard bloviating bully who is in over his head in this race, while McKinnon portrayed Clinton as overeager and trying way too hard to be relatable.
"I won the debate! I stayed calm!" Baldwin's Trump yells before blaming Clinton and Obama for breaking his microphone and making sniffling sounds.

"What do you think about that?" Michael Che, playing debate moderator Lester Holt, asks Clinton.

"I think I'm gonna be president," a beaming Clinton responds as Trump continues to self-implode next to her.

The show made clear that it agreed with polls that Clinton won last week's debate.

McKinnon as Clinton eventually breaks out into tears.

"I'm sorry, Lester," she says. "This is going so well. It's going exactly as I've always dreamed."

The sketch ends with the duo embracing and calling out in unison the first "Live from New York it's Saturday night!" of the season.

DEAR SUGAR,

Time and ability plus double capacity has forced my pen to dance automatically on this benedicted sheet of paper. I hope you're swimming in the wonderful pool of Mr. Health there. I am also perambulating in the cool breeze wellness here.

Sweetie pie, the reason why this miraculous thing is happening is because, honey, I love you spontaneously, and as I stand horizontally parallel to the wall and vertically perpendicular to the ground now, I only think of you, since you are a fantastic and fabulous girl put together as fantabulous.

Darling, please stop haranguing with the feelings in my heart because I love you more than a snake loves a rat.

To me each day I start by dreaming of you. Each time I see you my metabolism suddenly halts and my peristalsis goes in reverse gear. My medulla oblongata also ceases functioning.

Crazy crazy crazy you may say but this is true. If only you knew what is going on in my encephalon you would prostrate. That's why I need to see you vis a vis soon for a better elucidation through tete a tete. No hyperbole & onomatopoeia, simple candidness.

I think I have to pen off here, because I still haven't finished studying electrolysis and polymerization.

Catch you later.

Sleep tight and don't let those bed bugs bite you because you are too sweet for them.

Goodbye for now.

Your slave in love,

Sir Landy.
