The season premier of Saturday Night Live wasted no time going after GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, with cast member Taran Killam delivering a noteworthy impression of the bombastic billionaire. However cast mate Cecily Strong stole the scene as Trump’s Slovenian-born wife Melania innocently exposing him as a fraud.
Sitting in their “humble gold house” Killam’s Trump introduces America to his wife Melania, saying “You’re probably looking at this lovely woman here and saying, ‘Whoa. Who’s this? Another bangable daughter?'”
As his talk turned to accusations that he hates women, Trump’s battles with Megan Kelly of Fox News was addressed with Killam explaining it has “all been blown out of proportion.”
“Yes, people are saying he was not nice to her,” Strong’s Melania explained. “He was worried. He said she was bleeding everywhere, she should go to hospital.”
“That’s right. I was actually afraid she was gonna die,” Trump jumped in. “Honestly. I love Megan Kelly. I love her, I think she’s great. She’s talented and beautiful….but she a heifer who is always on her period and I hate her and I hope she dies.”
Other topics covered included Melania Trump coming over from Slovenia after Trump picked her out of a magazine, saying she didn’t need a green card “because those are for poor people.”
The fact that Trump was previously a Democrat supporting abortion rights and gay rights was also addressed with Trump growing uncomfortable with the topic.
With Trump denying he says outrageous things to keep his poll numbers high, his wife tests him by saying his numbers are slipping.
“Mexicans are stealing our children” Trump blurts out.

Lev Parnas’s attorney hilariously trolls Mitch McConnell in bid for witnesses during impeachment trial
The attorney for Lev Parnas trolled Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Saturday in a bid for a "fair" impeachment trial.
Attorney Joseph Bondy posted to Twitter a video mashing together the audio of Trump meeting with Parnas and Igor Fruman along with the music from Rick Astley's 1987 song "Never Gonna Give You Up."
Posting the song as an online prank, known as rickrolling, dates back to at least 2007.
Included with the video was a message to McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Bondy urged the two to "vote with integrity and conscience."
White House lawyers were desperate not to talk about Rudy Giuliani — or Trump’s other conspiracy theories: CNN analyst
On Saturday, CNN analyst Gloria Borger noted a key piece of the timeline that was conveniently missing from the defense presented by President Donald Trump's legal team: The involvement of Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
"The one person that Jay Sekulow didn't mention is Rudy Giuliani, because this is Rudy Giuliani's theory of the game here," said Borger. "They were very careful not to bring up Rudy Giuliani because they know that he is not well regarded in the United States Senate, but if you again look at this summary of the transcript of the president's phone call, the president talks about CrowdStrike, he talks about a lot of things that went on. 'I would like to have the attorney general call you or your people, I would like to have you get to the bottom of it,' this whole nonsense, he talked about Bob Mueller and said a lot of it started with Ukraine."
Pompeo ridiculed by CNN panel for his ‘phony mock outrage’ response after being outed as a foul-mouthed bully
Responding to a statement from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued through the State Department accusing an NPR journalist of being "shameless" for going public with an encounter she had with him in his offices where he cursed at her, a CNN panel all but rolled their eyes at his "phony" outrage.
Speaking with host Anderson Cooper, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin called out the blustery Pompeo as well as many Republicans who took "umbrage" at Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) mentioning a report that the Donald Trump would have their heads on "on a pike" if they crossed him.
