Actress Jessica Chastain was hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend and for a moment broke character to sincerely ask, “what even matters anymore?” Chastain was playing fake game show host Veronica Elders, quizzing contestants played by Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, and Kenan Thompson about whether Donald Trump has or has not done certain things in the media this past year.

Clues in the show included, "The President of the United States refers to African countries as poo-poo holes, and says all Haitians have AIDS with zero consequences and everyone just moves on."

"The President has an extramarital affair with a porn star right after his wife gives birth to his son. Then he pays the porn star to shut up," is answered by. "They just say he's repented and they forgive him and Mike Pence is, like, 'That's my dude!'" And so on.

McKinnon then breaks character and tells Chastain – not "Veronica" – she doesn't have to do this anymore. "Jessica, we know you're upset about the way our country's going, but you can't just, like, build a whole game show set and make us pretend to be contestants," Strong adds.

"I'm sorry guys, it just seems like nothing matters anymore," Chastain laments.
