SNL Cold Open Takes on Trump Jr.’s Secret Communication with WikiLeaks

Saturday Night Live kicked things off tonight with a cold open that knocked Donald Trump Jr. over his recently-revealed correspondence with Wikileaks during the 2016 election.

The show imagined a political drama series called The Mueller Files, and the latest installment depicts Trump Jr. personally meeting with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Eric Trump comes along too, much to Assange’s chagrin, though it’s clear that Trump Jr. is the brains of the operation.

As the meeting gets down to business, Assange hands Trump Jr. a folder containing dirt on Hillary Clinton that was hacked from the DNC. Assange asks Trump Jr. to have his father clear him of all espionage charges from the U.S. government, and Trump Jr. assures the Wikileaks chief that he’ll be rewarded for his help.

“If you help my father, he’ll help you,” Trump said. “He is always loyal to his friends.”
