SNL Cold Open Skewers Trump’s Press Conference and His ‘Big Russian Pee-Pee Party’
SNL took on President-elect Donald Trump‘s controversial press conference on this weekend’s episode, featuring the return of Alec Baldwin to play the soon-to-be Commander in Chief.
The President-elect touted his upcoming Inauguration billing as part of the sketch, featuring appearances by “Jackie what’s her name, and the one Rockette with the least money in her savings.”
But when it came time for the journalists in the room to hit Trump with some questions, they weren’t exactly what he had hoped for. “I’d like to ask you about your big Russian pee-pee party,” asked one.
“I’m going to bring back a thick stream of jobs to this country,” he deflected. “It’s a golden opportunity for me as president to make a big splash.”
Even the role of the confusing Sheri Dillon, Trump’s personal lawyer, was played hilariously by Cecily Strong to reveal the stacks of fake papers next to the podium. The cold open managed an additional swipe at Kellyanne Conway. “Everyday it looks like she does the ice bucket challenge with her makeup,” Trump says in the bit.
Saturday’s episode of SNL is hosted by Felicity Jones with musical performances by Sturgill Simpson. Watch above via NBC.
