Children bombard mall Santa with controversial political questions in SNL cold open

Children bombard mall Santa with controversial political questions in SNL cold open

First up, little Tyler wants a Mega Bloks dinosaur.

It began normally enough with a boy named Tyler, asking for a round of laser tag and some toys, but the mood shifted with his last question: "What did Al Franken do?". To which Santa's elf assistant, played by Kate McKinnon said, "It's not really a list, it's more of a registry". "And in this climate, can you just call me Amy?".

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. The young boy asked Santa if Roy Moore was also on the Naughty List. Instead, Thompson was asked questions like, "What did Al Franken do?"

Another child wants Santa to tell him why "players kneel during the national anthem?". There was a question about Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was recently endorsed by the GOP despite multiple reports that he molested young women. She then added that some Alabamians who've told pollsters they're voting for Jones are lying, too afraid of publicly stating something along the lines of, "Yeah, I'm going to support the pedophile who likes slavery".

"Our president may have said or done a few naughty things", Santa tells Jessica.

The audience laughs, and Thompson encourages the girl that lessons can be learned from what's going on in the news.


"Well, you know, Santa tries to stay out of political matters", Thompson said.

Unfortunately, the kids that head up to sit on Santa's lap are starting to understand that as long as you deny any wrongdoing, you can always keep your job in the public sector. Like truly mind-bendingly insane, and we seem to have lost all perspective on what's naughty or nice'.

That's when Amy assured one precocious little girl, "As bad as things seem, things will be okay. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not for another three years, forty two days, and 24 minutes, Jenny, but most people in America are good people. and eventually good people will fix our country".

The skit ended with the elf telling a little girl that 'I know that things seem particularly insane.

"Just in case", says Jenny, "I'm putting all my money in Bitcoin". "And if you ain't got nothing to apologize for, then why the hell are you resigning?".
