President Trump crashed the Democratic debate and dared the candidates to ‘impeach me ousside’ while Nancy Pelosi delivered him the articles of impeachment as a Christmas gift in Saturday Night Live’s hilarious cold open.
Alec Baldwin made his usual cameo caricaturing the president while the Democratic field of hopefuls battled it out on stage in a spoof of Thursday night’s debate in Los Angeles.
Senator Elizabeth Warren, played by Kate McKinnon, joked that PBS, the network that staged Thursday’s debate, is her ‘safe word.’
McKinnon did double duty for the sketch, appearing toward the end as a demonic Pelosi.

McKinnon also played Senator Elizabeth Warren during the sketch
Senator Bernie Sanders, portrayed by Seinfeld co-creator and former SNL writer Larry David, quipped that he was worried about climate change.
‘Look at me. Are you really surprised that my main concern is the temperature?’ he asked.
‘At my house I have a Sharpie on the thermostat so I know if you move it.’
He added: ‘No matter how hot the Earth gets, I will not wear shorts. I swim in corduroy.’
David’s Sanders began his appearance by declaring: ‘I’m Bernie Sanders. I’m white. Can’t help it.’
The line is a reference to Sanders’ response to a question he received during the debate on Thursday about the lack of diversity among the remaining candidates in the Democratic race.
The sketch took a dig at the dwindling number of minority candidates after the departure from the race of Senator Kamala Harris.
SNL alum Maya Rudolph came back for the cold open to revive her sassy portrayal of Senator Kamala Harris
‘While I’m here, I just want to show you how good you could have had it America… you could have had a bad b***h,’ she said after taking a sip of her cocktail
In real life, Harris dropped out of the Democratic race after her campaign ran out of funding
‘Just like The Bachelor, the further we go, the less diverse it gets,’ remarked the moderator, played by Heidi Gardner.
Speaking of Harris, her doppelganger, Maya Rudolph, also made an uninvited appearance at the debate.
‘While I’m here, I just want to show you how good you could have had it America… you could have had a bad b***h,’ she said after taking a sip of her cocktail.
The line was a reference to a lyric from a song by Lizzo, who was the musical guest in a historic episode hosted by SNL alum Eddie Murphy.
The sketch spoofed the argument during Thursday’s debate between Warren and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
At the debate, the Massachusetts senator hit out at Buttigieg for having a fundraiser at a wine cave in the Napa Valley.
The wine cave is on the grounds of a winery owned by billionaire donors to the Democratic Party.
Another SNL alum, Rachel Dratch, reprised her parody of Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota
‘Tonight, my voice will be as solid as my carefully rehearsed Midwestern mom jokes,’ Dratch’s Klobuchar joked
Dratch poked fun at Klobuchar’s penchant to get laughs with jokes
‘I haven’t been to a wine cave,’ McKinnon’s Warren said during the cold open.
‘I haven’t even been to a Filene’s Basement.’
Buttigieg was portrayed by Colin Jost as a boyish, robotic candidate who gets an allowance from his parents and asks for permission from the others to be in ‘attack mode.’
‘Tonight, I will be in attack mode…so long as that’s okay with everyone else,’ Jost’s Buttigieg said.
When he was attacked by Warren over the wine cave, Jost as Buttigieg said: ‘I would just like to point something out.
‘I am the only person on stage who isn’t a millionaire or a billionaire.
‘I live on my mayor’s salary plus a $20 a week allowance from my parents and that’s only if I do my chores.’
SNL also poked fun at Andrew Yang, the entrepreneur who remains in the race against the odds.
‘My candidacy will be completely ignored by the media, which is why I’ll conduct the rest of the debate in virtual reality,’ Yang, played by cast newcomer Bowen Yang, said.
Rudolph and David wasn’t the only SNL alum to return for the cold open.
Fred Armisen revived his Michael Bloomberg character and crashed the debate even though the billionaire former mayor of New York did not qualify for the debate in real life
Jason Sudeikis reprised his imitation of former Vice President Joe Biden and Fred Armisen revived his Michael Bloomberg character.
Rachel Dratch returned to do her send-up of Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who has been ridiculed for her penchant of making forced jokes.
‘Tonight, my voice will be as solid as my carefully rehearsed Midwestern mom jokes,’ Dratch’s Klobuchar joked.
When asked if she wanted to add something about the wine cave controversy, Klobuchar quipped: ‘The only cave I ever go to is a man cave. I call it the Senate.’
She then invited the audience to check out her stand-up special ‘Land of 10,000 Laughs’ streaming on ‘Costco +.’
Armisen’s Bloomberg crashed the debate, replacing Tom Steyer, the California billionaire who did participate in real life, even though he did not qualify for the event.
‘Oopsy classic billionaire switcheroo,’ Bloomberg said.
He then joked: ‘For $30million, PBS is now owned by viewers like me.’
He added: ‘Look, I even got a tote bag.’
The joke is a reference to Bloomberg’s entry into the presidential race. The billionaire former mayor of New York plans to spend big on ads using his own considerable resources.

Eddie Murphy made his iconic return to Saturday Night Live after 35 years and had comedic giants Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle tap in to offer their own two hilarious cents.
The 58-year-old legend opened Saturday night’s show by talking about his 10 kids, getting a joke off about Bill Cosby in the process.
‘I actually have 10 kids now,’ he said to applause. ’11 if you count Kevin Hart.’

Murphy continued: ‘I love Kevin Hart so much but my kids are my whole life now.
‘And if you would have told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring stay at home, father of 10 house dad, and Bill Cosby would be in prison, I would have took that bet. “Who is America’s dad now?”‘
The joke is an apparent dig at a bit from Murphy’s 1987 concert film ‘Eddie Murphy Raw’ where the comedian told of a time when Cosby called him and berate him about cussing in his act.
According to Murphy in the bit, Cosby blasted his parenting skills and called him out as being a bad role model to his kids.
The ‘Coming to America’ superstar was announcing his upcoming sequel and recent Netflix film ‘Dolemite is my Name’ when Tracy Morgan came out on stage.
The two joked about a supposed sketch Morgan sent Murphy for the show before the Brooklyn comedian praised the show host.
Murphy was soon joined by Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle
‘Whatever you need, I got your back,’ Morgan told Murphy. ‘If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t be here. Like, like literally. I was conceived on the “Delirious” tour bus.’
‘I don’t know if that math works out,’ Murphy retorted.
Chris Rock came out next and bragged about how he was there because his kids ‘love Lizzo,’ who was performing later on in the evening.
He also joked with Murphy about giving the comedian a ‘”Law and Order: SVU” uti sketch’ for SNL.
‘Instead of Ice T, it’s cranberry juice,’ Rock offered.
Chappelle lit up a cigarette while on the stage, in an apparent jab to Simon Cowell
Kenan Thompson joined the iconic comedians on the stage to close out the monologue
But Murphy clearly wasn’t a fan and declared: ‘That sounds kind of nasty for a Christmas show.’
Dave Chappelle was the last to come out of the legendary group, and he too joked about offering a sketch to Murphy.
He then told the host that he followed his ‘blueprint’ for his career. ‘I became the biggest star I could on television and then I quit,’ Chappelle said to laughter.
When one of the group asks when was the last time they all got together, someone offers that they were last together ‘last Thursday at Sinbad’s house.’
The group continued with their monologue and closed out the scene before Murphy appeared in a hilarious sketch about gentrification and playing off ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’
‘You’re looking at half of Netflix’s budget,’ Chappelle to the group, to which Morgan quickly corrected the masses.
‘Not me, not me,’ he said. ‘I made all my money on the road.’
Murphy said: ‘You mean from touring, right?’
Morgan quickly retorted: ‘No, I got hit by a truck.’
The group continued with their monologue and closed out the scene before Murphy appeared in a hilarious sketch about gentrification and playing off ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.’
The skit paid homage to one Murphy did while with the show as a cast member.
