Saturday Night Live went big with this week’s Donald Trump-skewering cold open.
It’s like a greatest hits showcase for all the “characters” in IRL Trump’s orbit. Scarlett Johansson and Jimmy Fallon do their Ivanka and Jared schtick. Ben Stiller is back as beleaguered lawyer Michael Cohen. Kate McKinnon debuts a new look in Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s latest lamb for the slau— er, lawyer.
But the highlight comes at the end, when Stormy Daniels — no impersonation, it’s really her — shows up to chat with her old pal, Donald. “I know you don’t believe in climate change, but a storm’s a-coming, baby,” she says.
This is a woman who, in the real world, may very well play a key role in bringing down the president of the United States. And here she is on SNL, cracking jokes about that possibility.
