Coronavirus: Brad Pitt opens 'Saturday Night Live' as Dr. Fauci

If you want to know just how far the United States has fallen, and how utterly insane the Trump administration's handling of all this has been, the makers of Dettol and Lysol had to make statements contradicting Donald Trump's statements earlier this week. After a clip of Trump saying we'll have a vaccine "relatively soon", Fauci translated.

"'Relatively soon" is an interesting phrase", he said. "Relative to the entire history of earth, sure, the vaccine is going to come real fast", Pitt said. "I have no idea", Fauci said.

"A miracle would be great!" "Also, when he said, 'everyone can get a test, ' he meant nearly no one".

In a surprise appearance, Pitt played Fauci at the opening of Saturday's "SNL", which was produced remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Oh, Brad Pitt, of course", Fauci said with a chuckle.

Donning a wig, glasses and a Brooklyn accent, Pitt as Fauci pointed out the misinformation President Trump has spread about the coronavirus and offered his own clarifications. Pitt noted. "Who doesn't love miracles?" Let's hope this is only the first of several appearances we get from Pitt.

With his head in his hand, Pitt said: "I know I shouldn't be touching my face, but".

Pitt ended the skit by removing his Fauci wig and thanking the doctor, health care workers and first responders for their efforts during the pandemic.

After a few more clarifications, Fauci played a clip of Trump saying how he had no plans on firing the medical expert, to which Fauci explained, "So, yeah, I'm getting fired".

Trump also told the American people that "anybody that wants a test gets a test. But until then, I'm going to be there putting out the facts for whoever's listening", he said.

"When I hear things like the virus can be cured if everyone takes the Tide Pod Challenge, I'll be there to say, 'please don't", Pitt's Fauci added.

Saturday Night Live has been going ahead during these hard times, with the majority of sketches and skits being filmed by the comedians in their own homes.
