SNL mocks Trump in Christmas sketch inspired by a Christmas Carol

SNL mocks Trump in Christmas sketch inspired by a Christmas Carol

Soon, he's spooked by a Michael Flynn character, who has just pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

But the cold open is redeemed when McKinnon's Hillary Clinton is revealed to be the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come.

Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" as Donald Trump - along with some unwelcome ghosts from the President's past in the show's own rendition of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". He tells Trump to come clean "for the good of the country", words which Trump finds impossible to say.

Trump lamented that he wished someone had told him not to hire Flynn, but Flynn said that Barack Obama told him exactly that. "Tonight you will be visited by three of them". "Can you believe I got fired just for listening to you?" "Frankly, I'm looking pretty good in the NBC news division", says Bush - a dig at Matt Lauer, the "Today" show host who was sacked this week amid allegations of sexual assault.

The parade of spirits is interrupted by a Melania Trump character, who implores her husband to return to the Christmas party and check out her decorations: "It's a attractive, festive hallway of dead branches and mysterious shadows".

Baldwin's Trump is then visited by the ghosts of Christmas past (Billy Bush, played by "SNL" cast member Alex Moffat), present (Russian president Vladimir Putin, played by "SNL" cast member Beck Bennett) and future (Hillary Clinton, played by "SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon). "I know what I need to do - erase Seasons 1-14 of "The Apprentice" and fire Robert Mueller", he said.

Trump (Alec Baldwin) was visited by Putin (Beck Bennett) in the "SNL" cold open on December 2. "Listen, we put a lot of work into you, a lot of time and money, and you're about to mess it all up", Bennett's Putin said.

Then, the "ghost" of "Vladimir Putin" (Beck Bennett) appears, and finally, the ideal "ghost" comes to say "Lock him up!"
