Saturday Night Live Takes Aim at Omarosa's Exit From the White House

Saturday Night Live Takes Aim at Omarosa's Exit From the White Houseā€

Alec Baldwin reprised his Trump impression in the cold open of Saturday's SNL, the final episode of 2017, playing the president wishing the country "Merry Christmas" alongside Cecily Strong's Melania Trump.

"Rest in peace", Strong echoed, before guiding "Trump" back to trimming the "tree of shame".

"It's Christmas time. Soon white Santa will be coming from house to house, taking presents from Muslims and illegals and giving them to American children", Baldwin's president said.

Next Baldwin's president asked some White House aides to decorate the tree with Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway offering up one with an image of "disgraced F.B.I. director James Comey".

"I've had an fantastic first year in office, maybe the best in the history of America or the world", Baldwin said.

Then arrived Sarah Huckabee Sanders, played by Aidy Bryant, with ornaments of Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci. Then there was an exchange between Trump and Pence that really got the crowd laughing. It's Omarosa Manigault (Leslie Jones), the former "Apprentice" contestant who made headlines last week after conflicting stories emerged about her White House exit.

Of course, what Trump skit would be complete without Scarlett Johansson's Ivanka Trump?

Regarding Moore, Baldwin's Trump says, "Poor Roy".

"Hey!" she shouted. "Let me in!"

Johansson's Ivanka responded, "As I said, there is a special place in hell and we're all there".

Omarosa makes a second, longer appearance on SNL's Weekend Update segment.

"I want... out", she replied. "And then I threw myself into the bushes". The Secret Service ultimately comes to escort her away. Explaining that Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez tweeted "Black women led us to victory and we can't take that for granted", co-anchor (and newly appointed co-head writer) Michael Che offered a sly, skeptical and perfectly delivered, "Mmmm, but I bet you will". "It's my greatest achievement, so now I can settle down and be super-presidential - that is, until Don Lemon says something mean about me, and I tweet the actual n-word".
