SNL's Hillary Returns: 'Lock Him Up!'

Donald Trump faces the ghosts of Michael Flynn and Hillary Clinton in SNL's 'Christmas Story' cold open SNL's Hillary Returns: 'Lock Him Up!'

The first ghost to pay a visit to Trump is former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty last week to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But Saturday Night Live has become adept at dealing with these end-of-week news dumps, so SNL's cold open for this week was not only prepared for the Flynn news, but it waxed poetic about the proffer made by the former National Security Adviser, too.

At least, he was on the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, which spoofed A Christmas Carol to skewer President Donald Trump and the ongoing Russian Federation investigation in its cold open. Bush asked Trump, a reference to the 2005 Access Hollywood video that led to Bush's sacking from Today in October 2016. Tied in chains and handcuffs, he tried to explain to Trump how important it is to come out clean now. I've just got to announce the names every week like Powerball numbers. Second up was the ghost of Vladimir Putin, who told Trump, "We put a lot of work into you, a lot of time and money, and you're about to mess it all up". "I mean someone who's American".

The ghosts then appeared, first one being Alex Moffat as Billy Bush - the ghost of the past.

And then the ghost of the future appears in a black hood completely hiding the face.

"I'm looking pretty good in the NBC News division right about now", Moffatt said, referring to the sexual misconduct allegations against Lauer, who was sacked by NBC News on Wednesday. However, it turns out to be McKinnon's Hillary Clinton. At first, though, Trump think Steve Bannon is under the cloak.

McKinnon's Clinton tells Trump she's overjoyed over his "slow demise".

Then, the "ghost" of "Vladimir Putin" (Beck Bennett) appears, and finally, the ideal "ghost" comes to say "Lock him up!"

Coming to Trump as Melania in the sketch, Cecily Strong describes her choice of décor to the president.
