Watch: ‘Saturday Night Live’ opening segment
The star of the opening segment of this week’s “Saturday Night Live” wasn’t a person — it was a shower.
A scene depicting President Trump (Alec Baldwin), Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), former Trump aide Paul Manafort (Alex Moffat), and Attorney General Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon) lathering up kicked off Saturday’s episode.
“I brought you into the shower to make sure you weren’t wearing a wire, Paul,” said the Trump character.
It was part of an episode, hosted by comedian Larry David, that followed the recent trend of leaning hard on politics.
Meanwhile, a dummy Trump was on Air Force One, flying overseas with a pleased Melania (Cecily Strong), who remarked about her husband’s silence.
“For the first time in 10 years, let me tell you about my day,” she said.
