Pitt participated in Saturday Night Live, playing Dr. Fauci, Donald Trump’s primary epidemiologist.
Brad Pitt played Dr. Fauci, in President Donald Trump’s primary epidemiologist, on Saturday Night Live, which ended in a heartfelt note thanking the doctor who once joked that he would love to be played by the Once Upon a Time in star. Hollywood.
The comedy show, which returned for another virtual version of ‘At Home,’ began with Pitt sitting at a desk dressed as Dr. Anthony Fauci discussing President Trump’s recent comments about the coronavirus.
But first, she thanked “all the older women in America who have sent me supportive, inspirational, and sometimes graphic emails.”
A clip from Trump claiming that the COVID-19 vaccines could arrive “relatively soon” led Fauci (Pitt) to analyze what “relatively” meant.
“Relatively it’s an interesting phrase,” explained Pitt’s Fauci.
“Relative to the entire history of Earth? Sure, vaccines are going to come very quickly. But it is as if you said to a friend, ‘I will finish relatively soon’, and you appear a year and a half later ”…
“When he said everyone can get tested, what he meant was almost no one.” He added that “he would hesitate to call the exams ‘beautiful’, unless his idea of ’beautiful’ is for a cotton swab to tickle his brain.”
Pitt in his role as Dr. Fauci also touched on the alleged idea of disinfectant injection to eliminate the virus, and also on the application of UV light inside the body….
The clip ended with Pitt taking off his wig and glasses to grimly thank the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and all other medical staff, working hard during the coronavirus crisis.
“For the real Dr. Fauci, thank you for your calm and clarity at this bewildering moment,” Pitt said.
The real Dr. Fauci will undoubtedly be delighted with his performance on SNL after previously asking who he would like to see him perform on the satire show.
“Oh Brad Pitt, of course,” Fauci joked.
