"Saturday Night Live" wrapped up its final episode of 2017 with a Christmas-themed cold open featuring Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump, returning to wish Americans happy holidays.
SNL spoofed a festive White House as the Trumps decorated the Christmas "tree of shame" with special ornaments of "haters and losers.”
The cold open begins with first lady Melania Trump, played by Cecily Strong, wishing viewers a Merry Christmas. Soon, Baldwin’s Trump intervened, pointing out “you can finally say that because the war on Christmas is over.”
He added “it will soon be replaced by the war on North Korea.”
In the hilarious sketch, he then boasted of his “absolutely amazing first year in office," which was perhaps “the greatest year in the history of America and maybe the entire planet Earth.”
He also bragged about the forthcoming passage of the Republican tax plan, giving Americans the “biggest, fattest tax cut they’ve ever seen.”
“It’s such a big tax cut it might even make me a real billionaire,” Baldwin’s Trump exclaimed. “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.”
Soon a bevy of special guests joined Baldwin. Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway was the first one to make an appearance, saying she has chosen an ornament with “disgraced” former FBI director James Comey on it.
“That’s right,” said Baldwin’s. “Sadly, I had to fire Comey because he was a nut-job and because he knew all my secrets."
And what des Conway want for Christmas?
“I want … out,” McKinnon replied, before leaving the screen.
Next up was White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, played by Aidy Bryant, who arrived with two ornaments.
“For my ornaments, I brought Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci, whose mangled corpses I stepped over to get this job,” she said.
Beck Bennetts as Vice President Mike Pence stepped in next to discourteously admits he doesn’t like the Christmas song “Deck the Halls,” because it includes “gay apparel” in its lyrics.
Scarlett Johansson also made a cameo, reprising her role as first daughter Ivanka Trump.
"Ivanka, you made it, but where's Jared?" Baldwin’s Trump asked Ivanka, referring to her husband Jared Kushner.
"He's packing a go bag before the FBI arrives," she said. “I brought you a brand-new ornament: Roy Moore.”
The former Republican candidate from Alabama, who ran for a U.S. Senate seat, lost last Tuesday to Democrat Doug Jones. Moore had spent several weeks battling accusations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls.
“Poor Roy. I thought for sure he would win. Until he lost. And then I said I thought he would lose,” remarked Baldwin’s Trump. “At least America knows that I finally supported an accused child molester."
Donald Jr. and Eric Trump also made an appearance next to show off their ornaments. The former had a long paper cutout of more than a half-dozen officials who have since left or been fired by the Trump administration and the latter showed up with a homemade craft project.
“I made a macaroni star!” Eric Trump exclaimed.
The Christmas skit also included an appearance from Kate McKinnon's Jeff Sessions, who was dressed as Elf on the Shelf.
"Whether you're Christian or Jewish, or that's it, we all can agree it's going to be a Merry Christmas," McKinnon's Sessions said, before asking for an angel with Mueller’s face on it to be placed on the tree.
“He’s next! We got to cut off the head to kill the snake,” he exclaimed. “Merry Christmas! Everybody is going to get away with everything!”
However, not everyone was allowed in on the special Christmas message, like Leslie Jones' Omarosa Manigault Newman, who left the White House this week.
Omarosa started banging on the window, demanding to be let in, before she was hauled away by the Secret Service.
"Hey! Let me in," Jones' Omarosa yelled. "Nobody kicks Omarosa out of the White House!"
While the skit had several punchlines, Johansson won the night with this iconic line:
"There's a special place in hell and we're all there."
