Jessica Chastain asks ‘What even matters anymore?’ in perfect ‘SNL’ game show sketch

In a surreal- yet too real- moment on Saturday Night Live tonight, Jessica Chastain intentionally violated character as a talk display host to lament, what even topics anymore?

Chastain ostensibly plays host Veronica Elders, quizzing contestants played by Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon, and Kenan Thompson on whether newsworthy things President Trump has said or done lately even rate among his base or the media today.
