Here's what everyone is saying about that Justin Trudeau skit on SNL
The skit features celebrity comedians playing the implicated world leaders including Jimmy Fallon as Trudeau, Paul Rudd as French President Emmanuel Macron, and James Corden as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Together, the three world leaders are portrayed as "the cool kids" who won't let Trump (played by Alec Baldwin, of course) sit with them in the cafeteria.
"Some dismissed it as petty high school gossip," the narrator states during the skit's intro, "but you should have seen what happened in the NATO cafeteria."
The skit goes on to point out the irony of Johnson's inclusion in the conversation considering his fairly close relationship with Trump, and it also shows the Trudeau character making fun of Trump's appearance and intelligence.
The original video surfaced last week after Trudeau, Johnson, Princess Anne, Macron and Dutch PM Mark Rutte were caught on film gossiping about Trump's press etiquette.
The SNL skit has been widely shared since it aired on Saturday night, confirming that the world is laughing at the show's portrayal of the controversial incident.
Great skits about it in the cold open of SNL last night. Trudeau, Macron, and Johnson are at the cool boys table in the cafeteria, and won't let Trump sit with them 😁— CF (@CrispinFresch) December 8, 2019
Some are saying the skit accurately says exactly what the rest of the world was already thinking.

The Globe and Mail: @nbcsnl skewers Trudeau’s mockery of Trump in high school cafeteria sketch.https://t.co/duTzevdjxU
While others are calling it a can't-miss.
Some are wondering what Trump thinks of the whole ordeal considering he's been fairly silent on the issue since he called Trudeau two-faced last week.
I wonder if #trump caught SNL last night. They had a great skit of Trudeau, Macron, Johnson, and Merkel, making fun of trump.— Michael🌊🌊🌊 (@mterr337) December 8, 2019
And others are wondering if Trudeau really is the head of "the cool kids" when it comes to world leaders.
Yes, as always, SNL likes to mock Trump as deserved but the main point of this sketch was Trudeau being the head of the cool kids with Boris tagging along and the head even inviting the dork, Angela Merkel, to come sit with the cool kids.— Thomas Gerald Moog (@Thomas_G_Moog) December 8, 2019
Is Trudeau really head of the cool kids?
But no matter what viewers think of the skit, one thing is for sure: In the words of Daily Show host Trevor Noah, "when world leaders get together, they’re gossipy bitches just like the rest of us."
