The ‘SNL’ gang has tackled everything from Britney Spears’ pregnancy, the resurrection cases of COVID, and even the attack on the subway in Brooklyn, New York this week.
In the spirit of Easter weekend, Spears (played by Chloe Fineman), Dr. Fauci (played by Kate McKinnon), New York Mayor Eric Adams (played by Chris Redd), former President Donald Trump ( played by James Austin Johnson) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (played by Cecily Strong) all shared their holiday wishes, among other things.
“I just pray that my baby is born healthy, happy and with power of attorney,” Spears wished animated by Fineman during the “SNL” cold open “Happy Easter!”
“Remember six months where everyone was like, ‘We have to get her out of this tutelage.’ And now you’re like, ‘Someone is going to watch her again, right?’ “, said Fineman’s Spears. “Well, don’t worry, I’m finally free and I’m having a baby!

On Monday, Spears, 40, announced she was pregnant with her first child with Sam Asghari, whom she called her “husband” in recent Instagram posts. “I’m having a baby,” she wrote.
Pregnancy announcements aside, Strong’s Marjorie Taylor Greene showed up – with a chocolate gun – to share her concerns about the Easter holiday getting “a little too LGBQRST for me”. It wasn’t the weirdest surprise appearance, though.
Jesus Christ, uh… Kyle Mooney’s Jared Leto made an appearance, and McKinnon’s Dr. Fauci made a comeback because “COVID cases are a lot like Jesus, they’ve gone up again.”
And this time, two years after an ongoing pandemic, Dr. Fauci is tired of relaying the same message. “I’m not supposed to say that,” joked Dr Fauci of McKinnon, “I honestly don’t care what happens to you.”
Redd Mayor Adams shared what he considered “the best news in all of New York” over Easter: “We got it, we got the shooter.”
“Of course it took 30 hours and the suspect surrendered but we got him,” he continued. “Case closed, the subway is fixed. Ride without fear. And I’m not just holding a press conference about it either, I’m organizing a parade for you all.”
