'SNL' sketch asks what would happen if Donald Trump was black

Kenan Thompson took his first on-air stab at a Donald Trump impersonation with an unexpected Saturday Night Live skit. "I'm afraid it might be over".

In a "preview" for the next Them Trumps episode, Darius reunites with his family after being sprung from jail. That's when Kenan Thompson turns in his chair, adorned in a Trump wig and reveals himself as Darius Trump.

The short clip, titled "Them Trumps" opens with a adviser ominously informing President Darius Trump "it might be over" following a week of controversy in which the real president tweeted that he was "totally clear" of wrongdoing.

We'll add video of The Trumps when it become available. In the meantime, scroll down to enjoy the faux Fox drama's poster, then drop a comment with your thoughts on the sketch below.

As they sit together in the Oval Office, Darius Jr tells his father: "Dad, the media has been out for you since day one and you proved them all wrong". "But here you are on top".

Darius gets a confidence boost from this praise and begins to monologue. Maybe I done some dirty things. "And what these feds don't realize is that I'm the President!" They can't like me.

He's suddenly busted in a raid by the Federal Bureau of Investigation - but soon released.

The sketch ends with a fake preview clip from next week's episode in which Darius Trump returns to the Oval Office and begins a speech about how a sitting president can not be charged, to which he is quickly informed that he's being impeached.

This alternate universe take on the 45th USA president imagines a different Trump presidency, one in which the entire First Family is black.
