Video: Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon bring Philly to ‘SNL,’ cuz Trump’s a Mummer

“So you’re saying Trump is like a drunk clown on the street?”

Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon showed up as guests on Saturday Night Live last night, as undecided female voters from the Philadelphia suburbs, representing the demographic that “pundits speculate could decide this election,” per Weekend Update host Colin Jost.

Wearing a Villanova vest and an Eagles sweatshirt, respectively, the pair presented Jost with a couple hoagies, then went on to talk — in kind-of-Philly-ish accents (Fey’s slayed, Fallon needs way more practice) — about the candidates.

“If you’ve been to the Mummers Parade on New Year’s — and it’s horrible, you have to go,” Fey said, “the guys in the Clown Brigade are already drunk, and they might honk your boob on the way down the street, and Trump is like that.”

“So you’re saying Trump is like a drunk clown on the street?” Jost replied.

Fey and Fallon’s characters also said they didn’t like Hillary Clinton…but couldn’t come up with many good reasons — other than the fact that she “didn’t finish the job” on getting back at the woman who’d been sleeping with her husband. What would Fey have done? At least “release mice into the drop ceiling of her pizza place.” (Upper Darby represent!)

The clip also includes mention of attending a Hooters concert at the Mann Center — and punching your way to the front row. Ah, Philly.
