The Trump ‘SNL’ Season Led Kate McKinnon To Smash A Wall With A Hammer

This latest season of “Saturday Night Live” had great ratings. This was due in large part to very popular Donald Trump-related sketches, as the country tuned in to see how “SNL” would interpret the president’s various gaffes.

Although the focus on Trump gained the show a large audience, you can imagine this constant focus on such depressing source material would be taxing on a staff tasked to somehow make the subject of Trump seem fun.

With that in mind, Kate McKinnon was on “The Tonight Show” Friday night and explained that after this season, she and her writer friends needed to blow off quite a bit of steam.

A hammer was involved. 

I grabbed the hammer and one of my writer friends was like, “Put a hole in the wall. Put a hole in the wall!”
Kate McKinnon

Host Jimmy Fallon and McKinnon ― who famously portrayed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ― talked about how NBC is renovating the “SNL” offices.

“Before we left, the last week we were all blowing off a lot of steam because it’s been like a big season or whatever and we were told the walls are coming down,” said McKinnon. “The whole floor is being demolished.”

McKinnon explained how she was dancing to music with “SNL” writer friends and fellow cast member Aidy Bryant when they realized a hammer was in the room.

“I grabbed the hammer and one of my writer friends was like, ‘Put a hole in the wall. Put a hole in the wall!,’” said McKinnon. “So I did and I put a hole in the wall. And then they all put a hole in the wall.”

But apparently, McKinnon had misinterpreted the plans for renovation and took that “the whole floor is being demolished” too literally.

“Then Aidy came back from the bathroom,” McKinnon continued. “And she was like, ‘Guys, the walls aren’t coming down.’”

McKinnon told Fallon that after the hammer incident, she bought a “big bucket of spackle” and left it in the office. “I sincerely apologize to whoever I made trouble for,” McKinnon said while looking straight at the camera.

After the apology she also jokingly admitted, “But I did feel alive. Wow did I feel young and alive.”

For Dwayne Johnson, Taraji P. Henson and Kate McKinnon, Oscar Rehearsals Are Full of Laughs—and Selfies

When the curtains part and Octavia Spencer, Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monáe walk to center-stage at the Dolby Theatre Saturday morning to rehearse lines they’ll deliver at the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday, Spencer for one can’t hide her goofy exuberance.

“I’m so excited!”, says the Oscar-nominated actress, casual in a grey sweater and wearing no make-up, while surveying the orchestra seats emblazoned with cardboard name-cards and head-shots of the likes of Emma Stone, Matt Damon and Meryl Streep

“I’d like to thank the Academy for opening the curtains for such a grand entrance!”

The Hidden Figures co-stars, who at one point playfully strike a dramatic Charlie’s Angels pose, pretend guns aloft, are among the first to kick off a steady stream of A-listers to breeze in and out of the theater for rehearsals early Saturday.

“Dwayne Johnson is here!” announces a member of the production crew into his head-set as the upbeat Moana actor saunters onto the stage. Nailing his lines after a few minutes, Johnson pulls out his iPhone and asks a stage hand to snap a photo of him in a celebratory pose with the backdrop of the near-empty theatre. Spotting his own make-shift head-shot affixed to an orchestra seat, the Rock points and says, “Oh, there I am!”

The star power is non-stop: Samuel L. Jackson, wearing a sweatshirt and baseball cap turned backwards, snaps a commemorative selfie from the stage; David Oyelowo, with his wife and four kids in tow to watch him rehearse, claps when a “winner” is announced; Henson is handed an Oscar trophy to simulate presenting but instead pretends to steal it and runs off stage while giggling.

Some actors stop to take in the moment. Scarlett Johansson, in a cropped jacket and clogs, looks around the auditorium and art-deco-inspired stage design and says, “It’s very glamorous!”

While most wear sneakers during rehearsal, presenter Kate McKinnon, otherwise casually dressed in a grey hoodie and a black long coat, slips on a pair of high-heel shoes to practice walking across the Oscar stage. But once she learns her lines and gives out several pretend Oscars, McKinnon is right back in her flats — and out the door.

The Academy Awards kicks off live on ABC on Sunday, Feb. 26, with a 7 p.m. ET pre-show and 8:30 p.m. ceremony. See all the Oscar nominees and get your own ballot here!
