Morning Joe SNL


The cold open of “SNL” mocked Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski from “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. In between arguing over different political issues, they got lovey dovey. In real life, of course, they are now engaged. At one point, they received a call from a White House spokesman named “John Miller,” but clearly it was President Trump. Watch the “Saturday Night Live” video below.

This is a slight departure, because as Gossip Cop has noted before, every episode of “Saturday Night Live” this season has opened with a political sketch. Before the election, the cold opens were about Trump and Hillary Clinton, played by Kate McKinnon. Among the best sketches were the presidential debates. “SNL” nailed the third presidential debate between Trump and Clinton, during which the now-president called his opponent a “nasty woman” and noted about border security that “we have some bad hombres here” and he wanted them out. For her part, Clinton changed the subject overtime her emails came up

Another highlight this past season was “SNL” mocking Trump’s first press conference, with its slew of jokes and puns related him having allegedly partaken in “golden showers” with Russian hookers. Of course, the allegation was unproven and Trump called CNN “fake news,” but it still provided for a funny skit with the president promising “golden” opportunities and a “stream” of jobs. At the end of the bit, Baldwin’s Trump tried to enlist the help of the media and asked, “Your in?”
