Then, after discarding a copy of “Triggered” by Donald Trump Jr. (which he said was “a little too scary”), Carrey began to read from what he said was a volume by Poe:

Once upon a midnight dreary,

While Trump retweeted QAnon theories

And rifled through his Adderall drawer,

I was writing my acceptance speech

When something stopped me with a screech.

It was a knock upon my chamber door.

It was someone still a little bit sore.

Into the room came Kate McKinnon, playing Hillary Clinton.

Carrey resumed:

It made me scared of four years more

Quoth the Clinton —

“We lost before,” McKinnon said.

Carrey’s Biden said to her: “But this time is different, I can win. The people know I have a plan.”

McKinnon responded, “But your real advantage is you’re not a woman, you’re a man.”

Carrey endured further visits from the pollster Nate Silver (Mikey Day), Mitch McConnell (Beck Bennett) and the rappers Ice Cube (Kenan Thompson) and Lil Wayne (Chris Redd), who have offered their support to President Trump.

Carrey’s last visitor was Maya Rudolph in her recurring role as Kamala Harris. Alternating lines, they delivered a final verse:

So whatever happens America, know that we’ll be OK.

Our nation will endure. We will fight another day.

I’m sure it will be peaceful, no matter who has won,

Though it’s never a good sign when Walmart stops selling guns.

Use your voice and use your vote. Democracy will represent.

This daylight saving time, let’s gain an hour and lose a president.
