Elon Musk Makes History As The First SNL Host With Asperger’s Syndrome

He even brought Grimes on the show!

Elon Musk made history last night on Saturday as the first SNL host with Asperger’s Syndrome and he sure has some potential to be a comedian.

Last night was a big test for the Billionaire CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, as his gig as the SNL host along with Miley Cyrus and The Kid LAROI as the musical guests, was seen by millions on live television around the world.

The opening monologue, the very first impression of him as the SNL host, did contain all the expected jokes about his scandalous Tweets, the pronunciation of the radical name of his and Grimes’ son, how he smoked a joint with Joe Rogan and, of course, boasts about his astronomical feats.

He also dropped in a very empowering fact. Elon Musk stated in his SNL monologue that, “I’m actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger’s to host Saturday Night Live,” Musk revealed and also quipped: “The first to admit it.”

While Elon was being criticized for being the SNL host due to him being a business-minded person, him opening up about his condition was really well received on Twitter, as one user wrote:

“Kudos to @elonmusk for letting everyone know he has Aspergers and just embracing it. Huge step for the Autistic community getting the recognition they deserve.”

Although the wild card for the Saturday night was Elon Musk’s singing partner, Grimes, who made a cameo in one of the skits.

In a skit which was based around a courtroom setting where Elon Musk was all dressed up as the iconic video game antagonist Wario.

While Elon Musk’s Wario was trying to convince the judge that he is misinterpreted as being evil, while he is just a weird guy (a metaphor for his social media presence), the character of the damsel in distress, Princess Peach, was called out as a witness and SNL found the perfect candidate for the role.

Yup, SNL gave the role of Princess Peach to the popular musician and mother to Elon’s son, Grimes, and she looked adorable in the blonde wig and pink dress combo.

The musical guests for the night, Miley Cyrus and The Kid LAROI, also nailed their performance of the song “Without You”.

Both the artists’ vocals were in perfect harmony. Miley Cyrus also sang the titular song of her latest album, “Plastic Hearts”
