Debbie Downer Returns to “SNL” Because Life Is Terrible

"How do you guys feel about Trump?"

Nothing cheers us up quite like Debbie Downer.

Saturday Night Live alum Rachel Dratch returned to Studio 8H last night to reprise one of her most famous characters—and not a moment too soon.


The Hurricane Bianca star has popped up on SNL all season as now-former Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and now the dismal state of affairs in America demanded some Debbie.

Wearing an protective mask and sitting next to host Daniel Craig at a cousin’s wedding reception, she proceeds to kill everyone’s buzz by bringing up COVID-19, Trump, and, yes, feline AIDS.


Debbie also shares a #MeToo story that involves a lunch date giving her a handsy Heimlich maneuver: “#NotBuyingIt,” she says.
