SNL Brings on the Moms for Mostly Trump-Free Mother’s Day Cold Open


Saturday Night Live took a quasi-break from politics in its latest cold open which featured cast members’ mothers critiquing the show’s political jokes.

“Normally we open this show with a political sketch, which can sometimes be divisive. But since tomorrow is Mother’s Day, we’re going to focus on something we can all agree on: mothers,” Aidy Bryant explained, standing next to her mom.

The open was not completely politics-free, however, with some of the moms giving their take of all the Trump jokes.

Luke Null‘s mom wondered why her son’s show didn’t focus more on “Crooked Hillary.”

“Enough with the Trump jokes,” she scolded.

Chris Redd‘s mom then told her son, “I don’t understand why everyone focuses on Trump when you should be focusing on Jesus.”

Redd replied, “Well, Jesus isn’t President ma.”

“And that’s the problem,” she snapped back.

Colin Jost‘s mom also had some thoughts on the Trump jokes.

“I think Alec Baldwin does a great Trump impression,” she said. “But why does it have to be so mean? Who writes that stuff?”
