‘SNL’ Puts Coal in Trump White House Stocking With Cold Open

Alec Baldwin skewers President Trump again with Christmas-themed sketch.

‘Twas the Saturday Night Live episode before the Christmas break and all through Studio 8H, not a feature was stirring that did not include a shot at the Trump administration.

Saturday’s SNL cold open continued the NBC comedy series ongoing campaign against the president with a “White House Tree Trimming” sketch that returned Alec Baldwin and his scrunched face impression of Trump. He was joined by Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway, Aidy Bryant’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Beck Bennett’s Mike Pence, Scarlett Johansson’s Ivanka Trump… and Leslie Jones’ Omarosa. But did all those cameos add up to a humorous bit? That probably depends on the viewer’s political leanings.
