Putin makes a surprise Christmas visit to Trump on 'SNL'

Dec 19, 2016, 00:29

In its cold-open sketch, the show tore into Trump's reportedly friendly relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his misspelled tweets and his controversial Cabinet picks.

Once Tillerson sees that Putin is in Trump's apartment, he becomes elated to see his old-time friend. Kate McKinnon once again reprised her role as Clinton, to star in a timely "Love Actually" sketch that also took some jabs at Trump. It was both festive and alarming.

"Speaking of black and crude, I know Kanye", Trump says. "It's fun, you just put it right here next to your internet router", he said, placing the gift above Trump's chimney.

The former KGB spy kept up the fawning routine, proclaiming Trump "the best candidate, the smartest candidate, the Manchurian Candidate".

"All I know is I won", Trump says. "This guy is blowing my mind".

"Sure buddy", Tillerson dismisses, turning back to Putin. This has so much energy.

Tillerson, the CEO of ExxonMobil, has a close relationship with Russian Federation and was given the country's Order of Friendship award in 2013, one of the highest honours that Russian Federation bestows on foreigners. The Electoral College doesn't vote until Monday, and anyway, this was SNL's Christmas episode-and in comedy terms at least, the Trump transition is the gift that keeps on giving.

The Russian leader shares a map of drilling sites, appealing to Tillerson to help solve problems. "As soon as the sanctions are lifted, we'll up our intake by 30 percent", Goodman's Tillerson says.

"Don't worry about it", Putin replies.

President-elect Donald Trump really isn't going to like this week's "Saturday Night Live".
