Saturday Night Live kicked off their show tonight with John Goodman doing an impersonation of Rex Tillerson, who was clearly broken up about being fired as Secretary of State this week.
Alex Moffat brought back his impression of CNN’s Anderson Cooper in order to ask Kate McKinnon‘s Jeff Sessions to explain the Department of Justice’s decision to fire Andrew McCabe last night. Sessions tried to sidestep the issue, but he did say at one point “Trump made me do it,” and Robert Mueller would be toast if he gets fired too.
From there, Cooper turned to “Tillerson,” who was obviously not okay as he talked about all the humiliating details surrounding his dismissal. He continued to stew throughout the panel interview, though at one point, the former secretary more or less confirmed the old rumors by shouting “Trump is a moron!”
“Feels nice to say what I want,” said Tillerson. “Call Jurassic Park, because the Rexy is loose!”
Tonight’s guest host and SNL alumnus Bill Hader was also on as Anthony Scaramucci, who kept frustrating himself by making on-the-record comments right next to Fred Armisen‘s Michael Wolff.
