In the final episode of 'Saturday Night Live' before American voters go to cast their ballots for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump shares a special embrace with some of his staunchest supporters: Vladimir Putin, FBI Director Comey and a member of the KKK.

The episode began with Alec Baldwin and  Kate McKinnon in a Rock the Vote type ad urging Americans to go out and vote - no matter who they intend to vote for.  

Baldwin, breaking character, said “I’m sorry, Kate. I just hate yelling all this stuff at you like this."

“Yeah, I know right?” McKinnon replied. “This whole election has been so mean.”

“I mean I just feel gross all the time,” Baldwin said. “Don’t you guys feel gross all the time about this?”

This came after, McKinnon playing Clinton,  took on Baldwin's Trump, saying, “Donald Trump has single-handedly ruined so much of what, we as Americans, hold dear: kindness, decency, Tic Tacs, Skittles, taco bowls, father-daughter dances, buses, bright red hats, the world ‘great,’ the color orange, men.”

“You know what I think can help us? Let’s get out of here,” said McKinnon before the two joined hands and ran out of Time Square, in a rare moment of campaign unity. 

“We can’t tell you who to vote for, but on Tuesday, we all get to chose what kind of country we want to live in” added McKinnon, just before they shouted the cold open.
