SNL's Trump Chooses Kushner Over Bannon in Cold Open

SNL's Trump Chooses Kushner Over Bannon in Cold Open

Jimmy Fallon as Jared Kushner and the Grim Reaper as Steve Bannon on SNL.

A U.S. lawmaker has demanded the revocation of the security clearance for President Donald Trump's son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner for his refusal to disclose numerous contacts with foreign officials.

Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week for a cold open featuring some of the show's strong (white male, as the current White House kind of calls for) impersonation talent.

Bennett's Pence tried to dissuade Trump from angering North Korea any further, as Trump extolled the virtues of his own first 100 days in office. "I'm not joking", Trump said, as ominous music plays in the background.

Baldwin muses about the end of his presidency.

"The biggest fattest bomb they have ever seen".

'It's so big and fat, it nearly looks like me when I'm on my golf clothes'.

Trump then summons White House advisers Steve Bannon and Kushner for an "Apprentice"-like elimination segment". Bannon was, once again, featured as the Grim Reaper. Standing before me are my two top advisers. When I see a photo of you. "But no one has ever heard you speak". The person pictured gets to stay.

"It would be really great if the nitpickers could try to see the big picture, and didn't exclusively focus on every little slur and lie I say", "Spicey" says. "You've shown everybody that if you are born rich and marry my daughter, you can do anything you want".

Trump takes a moment to assess Kushner and Bannon's appearance.

For its first live show coast-to-coast, "Saturday Night Live" brought out Jimmy Fallon as Jared Kushner and Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer as the Easter Bunny.

McCarthy's Spicer delivered a belligerent apology from a podium, but also berated the press for inflating the incident.

"Everybody shut up so I can apologize". You need all the help you can get.

"In a normal administration, I would say if he weren't the President's son-in-law, this wouldn't be tolerated", Nadler said, comparing Kushner to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who misled the Vice President and the Senate Judiciary Committee about their contact with the Russian ambassador, respectively.

'They were like boo-hoo, what about the Holocaust centers? "I clearly meant to say, "concentration clubs, ' ok?"

"We are requesting that Mr. Kushner's interim top-secret security clearance be suspended pending a review of Mr. Kushner's compliance with the laws and regulation governing security clearances".

"I am particularly sorry this happened on Passover, or AKA, Jewish Easter", Spicey continues. Not even Hitler- ' before quickly backtracking and saying: 'You know what, not going to do that. You fool me once, right?
