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.

Who will be the next FBI director? Michael Wolfe’s has some predictions.

"Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.

The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.

"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."

At Tuesday's White House coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump got into an argument with Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason, when he commanded him to take off his protective face mask.

Mason refused to do so, at which point Trump mocked him, saying "You want to be politically correct."

Trump also repeated a line previously made by his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, asking why former Vice President Joe Biden wore a mask when he was in public but not standing close to anyone, when he wasn't wearing a mask at home with his wife right next to him.
