A year ago, as Saturday Night Live ‘ s musical guest, Chance the Rapper sang the Run-DMC charade” Jingle Barack “ about President Obama’s last Christmas in the White House. This week, in his SNL hosting debut, Chance followed that up with a Thanksgiving slow jam:” Am coming, Barack .”
Joined by Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd, the Boyz II Men-style song was about how much they are missing the 44 th president virtually one year into 45′ s first word.
” We didn’t know just what we had ,” the chorus moved.” Now things are looking bad. Like really bad, like World War bad, like nuclear bad .” As Chance added,” When I think of change, the only change I crave is you !”
” It’s been a long time Barack, almost as long as since a guy talked over a record like this ,” Thompson intoned.” For real, why would you leave us? Oh,’ induce you had to because of the Constitution? But you can come back, right? Oh, you can’t? Because that would undermine the very institutions that we &# x27; re scarcely holding on to because this is? I find. I guess we’re stuck with this dude for a while then. Maybe you can come back and make a speech? How much would that expense? For real? Oh , no, we definitely can’t afford that .”
