SNL opens with devastating takedown of Trump’s firing of McCabe and Tillerson

Published

on

Trump’s wild week made for a great cold opener on Saturday Night Live, which parodied an episode of Anderson Cooper 360 featuring a panel that covered the week’s many notable firings.

“I’m just a simple man who wanted to make things bad for immigrants, and now here I am taking away the pension of a Christian white,” said Sessions.

The spot started with Kate McKinnon’s always great Jeff Sessions and ended with Fred Armisen’s spot-on impression of Fire and Fury author Michael Wolfe.

In the middle, we got John Goodman as Rex Tillerson, explaining how he was fired by tweet.

“It’s just crazy how one day you’re the CEO of Exxon, a $50 million company, and the next day you’re fired by a guy who used to sell steaks in the mail,” he said.

Host Bill Hader did a great version of Trump’s short-lived spokesman, Anthony Scaramucci.

That's three times higher than the percentage of Americans who supported impeaching Richard Nixon during the early stages of the impeachment process.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.
