SNL Trump Cold Open


The cold open of “SNL” began by mocking Donald Trump’s Christmas with Melania at the White House. In the kickoff sketch, Alec Baldwin again lampooned the president by having him decorate the Christmas tree with ornaments of losers, including James Comey, Sean Spicer, Anthony Scaramucci, Roy Moore, Mike Flynn, Omarosa and others. Scarlett Johansson also made a cameo as Ivanka. Watch the “Saturday Night Live” video below.

The last three shows have opened with Christmas themes. Last week, little kids visited with Santa and asked for gifts, as well as questions about a variety of subjects in the news. One little boy asked Santa for a couple of toys and also “what did Al Franken do?” Another child told Santa, “I want a football,” and followed that up by wondering whether the NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem do that because “they hate the troops.” Meanwhile, when Santa asked a third child if he wanted a toy, the boy responded, “Oh, a toy like the one Matt Lauer gave to his co-worker?”

And two weeks ago, when Baldwin was last on the sketch comedy show, the cold open of “SNL” was a parody of A Christmas Carol, with the president being visited by the past, present and future. It began with he ghost of Michael Flynn appearing in the Oval Office in chains, warning Trump about the visits. From Trump’s past was Billy Bush. Vladimir Putin was from his present. And the president was haunted from the future by Hillary Clinton, who yelled, “Lock him up!”

As Gossip Cop has noted before, virtually every cold open from the past two season has been focused on politics, with the vast majority of the first sketches being about Trump. While last year’s shows were mostly about the presidential race and Trump’s policies after assuming office, a lot of this season’s programs have been related to the investigation into Russia’s possible involvement in the election. Other topics cover made fun of this season have included Trump’s stance on North Korea and the football players who take a knee during the Star-Spangled banner.
