This Is Us' second season comes to a screeching halt Tuesday, surely to be filled with tears and (spoiler) a flashback that shows Jack as an old man. If you can't wait, though, Saturday Night Live offered up a parody that hits a little too close to home: This Is U.S. You know, like the United States. Yikes.
This week's host, Sterling K. Brown, takes on the role of Ben Carson, a political play on his character of Randall. Aidy Bryant reprises her role of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, with a big nod toward Us' Kate. (The pulling away of the Post-it Notes is too much.) And pulling up the rear as Kevin is Jared Kushner, played by Pete Davidson.
The alternative universe follows the three political figures as they navigate the world of the Trump administration under the guidance of their matriarch, Kellyanne Conway, who came under fire this week for violating the Hatch Act. So it's definitely a bit of a departure from Mandy Moore's style, but, hey, you do you Kellyanne.
As everyone bursts into tears, Kellyanne does her best, but, well, to quote her, "Oh, yeah, I can't cry." You know, maybe it was the lack of Milo Ventimiglia, but it's hard to see This Is U.S. being picked up for another four years. Then again, Big Bang Theory is on what feels like Season 49, so who can really say?
