Alec Baldwin Visited by Ghosts of Trump's Past in 'SNL' Cold Open

'Saturday Night Love' Cold Opening: Donald Trump Gets Ghostly Visits From Michael Flynn, Billy Bush, Hillary Clinton SNL Skit Imagines A Christmas Carol Starring Trump, Flynn

In the sketch, Baldwin's Trump says he's in "pouty baby mode" over the ongoing investigations by Robert Mueller and fired National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's decision to plead guilty to lying to the FBI as part of a rumored deal to reveal information regarding Mueller's probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In the December 2 cold open, Trump's (Alec Baldwin) first visitor is Michael Flynn (Mikey Day), the ghost of witnesses flipped.

Another Saturday, and another "Saturday Night Live" cold open mocking President Donald Trump, members of his administration, or anything else Trump-related. "I'm here to remind you of that "Access Hollywood" tape, my man", "SNL's" Bush says.

When Trump comforts Bush and tells him he's sure he'll be able to find a job on TV again, Bush replies, "I hope so".

Like Dickens's Ebeneezer Scrooge, Trump is visited by his very own ghosts - personalized for Trump, as only "SNL" can see them.

"I meant someone American", Baldwin explained, referring to Trump's false narrative about former President Barack Obama having a fake birth certificate. Cecily Strong limned Melania Trump, spoofing the first lady's artsy White House holiday decorations that generated much commentary this week. Moffat asked. Baldwin wished him the best and Moffat made a subtle dig at recently fired Today host Matt Lauer: "I'm looking pretty good in the NBC news division right about now".

The ghosts then appeared, first one being Alex Moffat as Billy Bush - the ghost of the past. However, it turns out to be McKinnon's Hillary Clinton.

"You, Donald, have given me the greatest Christmas gift of all -- sexual gratification in the form of your slow demise", McKinnon's Clinton said.

"You have no idea how long I've wanted to say this - lock him up!", McKinnon's Clinton said.
