This has got to be one of the biggest Saturday Night Live Cold Opens lately! The comedy show came back from hiatus this weekend and it was an episode to remember.
Alec Baldwin, who famously impersonates Donald Trump on SNL was back, as well as actor Ben Stiller, who played the president’s lawyer, Michael Cohen.
In addition to that, even Scarlett Johansson was brought back to reprise her role as Ivanka Trump while none other than Jimmy Fallon, acted as her husband Jared Kushner.
SNL cast member Martin Short played Dr. Harold Bornstein, the Donald’s former doctor and the cast was simply perfect for the political sketch.
However, what was the most surprising is that instead of hiring a comedian to impersonate porn actress Stormy Daniels, SNL producers chose to actually cast Daniels herself! What a great cameo!
The sketch was all about Ben Stiller’s Cohen who was calling the president nervously to make sure they got their stories straight.
As the narrative goes on, the attorney is shown juggling calls from many players involved in the Trump drama.
Viewers are able to see a brand new Rudy Giuliani impression by Kate McKinnon.
McKinnon’s Giuliani is talking to Cohen while also appearing on Fox News at the same time.
He tells Cohen that his plan is to appear on twenty-five talk shows and accidentally reveal incrimination info.
‘I am trying to make it like an advent calendar. I will reveal one new crime on each show,’ he says.
Finally, Trump asks Cohen to settle things with none other than Stormy Daniels and that is when the adult film actress comes into the picture.
At this point, everyone was trying to guess who would play her but pretty much the entire cast had already appeared which is why seeing the real Stormy came as a brilliant twist.
After Stormy and Donald have a pretty vulgar exchange, Baldwin’s President tells his alleged mistress to ‘drop the act.’
‘I work in adult films, we are not really known for our acting,’ she argues.
Trump asks what is going to take for her to drop her accusations and lawsuit and the answer is simple: ‘a resignation.’
The studio audience cheers.
‘Yeah right. Being President is like doing porn – once you do it, it is hard to do anything else,’ he says.
The sketch closes with an epic line from everyone’s favorite adult films actress: ‘I know you do not believe in climate change, but a storm is coming baby!’
