'SNL': Alec Baldwin Ends War On Christmas As Omarosa Begs Forgiveness

Leslie Jones

Last week's Christmas cold open didn't really count, and neither did last last week's, so let's ignore them for now to focus on Saturday's special Christmas message from the Saturday Night Live White House, starring Alec Baldwin as everyone's favorite Commander-in-Chief and a surprise appearance by Scarlett Johansson as the ever-complicit first daughter. In the sketch, various members of the Trump administration (played by various SNL cast members) stopped by the White House to bring ornaments for the "shame" Christmas tree representing former employees.

What did you think of the SNL's final Trump-centric cold open of the year?

Cecily Strong reprised her role as First Lady Melania Trump, along with Kate McKinnon, who played double duty as both Kellyanne Conway and Attorney General Jeff Sessions (dressed as the Elf on the Shelf).

"He's packing a go bag before the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrives." she said. "I'll always remember that one time I heard him talk". The gang's all here, from outright enemies like James Comey to friends-turned-enemies like Mike Flynn to recently-minted enemy Omarosa, who doesn't rate an ornament, but shows up in person outside the windows, trying desperately to get back into the sunlight of Trump's love. "You can finally say it again because the War on Christmas is over", said Baldwin's Trump. Ivanka brought him two ornaments: One of Republican Alabama senate candidate Roy More and a "Mad Ball", meant to be a Steve Bannon ornament.

"In the Christmas spirit, I wanted to thank all the wonderful people who work for me, but because I can't help myself, we're also going to remember the haters and losers I destroyed this year".
