In case you missed it, this is pretty funny stuff. The premise of the sketch was very simple. A bunch of Hillary supporters gathered to watch the election unfold on TV. At the beginning of the night, they’re all overconfident that Hillary will win. As the night wears on, they go crazy.
People has a great breakdown:
Chris Rock Joins Dave Chappelle to Watch Election Results with Shocked Clinton Supporters on SNL
Saturday Night Live poked fun at overly confident Democrats with an Election Night skit that saw host Dave Chappelle and surprise guest Chris Rock caution their white liberal pals against celebrating too early.
As they group revels in the thought of electing the first female president, Chapelle remains skeptical. “Yep, it might be a historic night, but don’t forget it’s a big country,” his character says.
As the night wears on and the results are announced, most of the group is shocked as Donald Trump pulls ahead.
Aidy Bryant asks, “Why aren’t people turning out for Hillary the way they did for Barack Obama?”
“I mean, maybe because you’re replacing a charismatic 40-year-old black guy with a 70-year-old white woman,” Rock explains. “That’s like the Knicks replacing Patrick Ewing with Neil Patrick Harris.”

Saturday Night Live usually skews very liberal which makes this all that much funnier.
It’s also probably an accurate portrayal of what many liberals went through that night.
