The "Saturday Night Live"-Trump feud will go down in history as the most iconic and fun instance of the media warring with the establishment. As the president-elect, about to ascend to what is perhaps the most symbolically powerful position in the world, he is becoming increasingly obsessed with harmless comedians. Moments after an SNL skit airs on TV, Trump can be found furiously tweeting insults at the team. And by now, you can tell that SNL is doing it for fun.
As has been the case for last several weekends, Alec Baldwin returned in his role as Trump. Kate McKinnon was there, as the troubled Kellyanne Conway. The two talk about the list of people, a staggering number of two, who have agreed to perform at the inauguration. There is the inevitable joke on the "unpresidented" tweet.
And then comes — you might want to sit down for this — a shirtless Putin. This terrible year might be drawing nearer to a tortured end, but it won't go down without a fight. In its last moments, it has decided to scar us forever an impossible standard of masculine beauty.
Putin gets Trump a Christmas present, an innocuous elf-on-the-shelf that Trump has to keep next to his internet router forever. Rex Tillerson, Trump's pick for secretary of state, is also visiting, and he is more than stoked to see his old bud, Putty.
Watch the Christmas drama unfold in the video above.
