VIDEO: Donald Trump Gets Surprise Christmas Visit From Vladimir Putin in 'Saturday Night Live' Cold Open

Saturday Night Live kicked off its final episode of 2016 with another topical Donald Trump cold open.

Played by Alec Baldwin with Kate McKinnon as his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, the sketch begins by making fun of the President-elect’s recent spelling mistakes.

After revealing he chose former governor of Texas, Ricky Perry, to be Secretary of Energy, he said, “This guy has so much energy. It’s just ‘unpresidented.’”

Then Vladimir Putin (played by Beck Bennett) came down the chimney shirtless with a gift – an “Elf on the Shelf.”

Vladimir, I’m sorry, but I didn’t know you were coming, so I do not have a gift for you,” Baldwin as Trump said.

The Russian leader said back, “Please, Mr. Trump, you are the gift.”

Watch the Trump Christmas cold open below!

    Ok, enough of making fun of our President elect. It’s too much now.

    Vladimir wanted Clinton, but got Trump :)

    alec baldwin is seriously obsessed with donald trump. can’t he book a real acting job anymore?

  • ola akande

    when the material presents itself daily, its gonna get mocked

  • Koos

    making a point?
    hahahahaha

  • Pimpcessa

    The “material being presented daily” is from anti-Trump liberal celebs that want to embarrass our President for a joke. Try being an American instead of a lib that hates on a President that hasn’t even had a chance to prove himself yet.

  • Pimpcessa

    THANK YOU!

  • ola akande

    so…they should ignore all this russian hacking nonsense as liberals being liberals? lmaooo

    “oh its just liberal propaganda, ignore whatever the CIA is saying”

    SNL simply observes odd behavior & mocks it

  • Visitor

    YOUR president-elect has NEVER apologized to the racist and religious minorities he’s attacked. He’s never apologized to the disabled reporter he ridiculed. He’s never apologized to the women he’s sexually assaulted. Please!

  • Visitor

    Your president elect IS A JOKE. He’s a know-nothing buffoon and a reality show clown.

  • Pimpcessa

    Why would he apologize to “the racist and religious minorities”??? And if he’s not YOUR President Elect, then don’t worry about him, as he’s not YOUR problem.

  • Pimpcessa

    What does HE have to do with what the media is saying Russia did?

  • dalovelee

    SNL’s only audience is elitist liberals. And Liberals are never one to look at themselves critically and admit a 60 year old crooked Granny on the ticket and actually thought she was going to win was the DUMBEST THING EVER..so they make fun of a TRUE winner to deflect from the butt hurt. The wounded ego of liberals is the best part.

  • ola akande

    what? so u don’t know the guy he appointed for Sec of State is a Putin guy?

    I didn’t want Hillary, i was a Bernie guy BUT all the russian hacks that happened the CIA reported that it was to ensure a Trump victory…..i didn’t say this. obama didn’t say this. snl didn’t say this. THE CIA SAID THIS lmaooo

    in what reality do u live in? lol

    idc what party or nominee u support, anyone can see there is a correlation between the Trump-Putin story. SNL isn’t gonna ignore it bc its gonna dominate the news

  • John Dow

    It’s called brainwashing. Clinton, her sponsors and her foundation have well-documented personal and financial ties with Kremlin. To distract people’s attention from the facts, libtards and democRats has decided to create a myth that Trump and Putin are friends, despite the fact that they’ve never even met each other and unlike Clinton, Trump has no personal relationship with Putin.

    Donald Trump is not the first President that SNL mocked, so why should he be any different.

  • Pimpcessa

    You may need to calm down, as the only thing that the Russian hacking even did was expose what the Dems/Hillary were doing in secret. And Trump didn’t win because the people necessarily wanted Trump for President. It was mostly because the people DIDN’T want Hillary….especially after the leaks became public. And the whole lying scandal….over many many years. Why aren’t you more upset by what Clinton did to Bernie?

  • Pimpcessa

    Although I don’t know that Clinton has financial ties to the Kremlin, I do agree they were bent on convincing the people that Trump did have a relationship with Putin.
    I never believed everything the media puts out, but after this election cycle, I believe none anymore. It’s not journalism anymore, it’s just about some reporters OPINION, as they stir the pot of controversy for their own gain.

  • John Dow

    You’re so stupid. CIA couldn’t provide any evidence. because they have none. It’s just yet another lie to affect Electors voting next week.

  • Pimpcessa

    Huh?? Lol.

  • ola akande

    (yawn)

  • John Dow

    If you want to know more about Clinton and her ties with Kremlin: New York Times article «Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation», Wall Street Journal article «The Clinton Foundation, State and Kremlin Connections» for a start ;)

  • ola akande

    i didn’t need the russians hacking her emails to let me know that Hillary is a liar. The thing is Hillary / Trump are 2 sides of the same coin. The difference is one knows policy & isn’t a racist or xenophobe & the other is Donald Trump lmao.

    Trump won bc he did a great job stirring up racists & working class white ppl 2 vote. Hillary lost bc she didn’t inspire ppl the way Obama did in both elections & the way Bernie did this past election cycle. The media attention on these two candidates was sky high but voter turnout was low bc both of them are pieces of shit lmao

    the only difference is Trump is proving himself to make George W Bush look like Einstein….& he hasn’t even got sworn in yet lmao

    mind u, no one is forcing u to watch SNL

  • Pimpcessa

    Their arrogance, once Hillary was named the nominee, was unbelievable. She looked as if they had it in the bag after the first debate. That didn’t help her at all. Wonder what Katy Perry is going to do with her “Madam President” cape she wore?? Pompousness and arrogance, along with her gratuitous fawning over minorities, that she and her husband helped put in jail, was a little disturbing too. They thought the inner city peeps were stupid, and thought they had it all wrapped up. No wonder Hillary was so upset with the loss. She didn’t have nearly the support that she thought, and her ego was shredded.

  • Pimpcessa

    Thanks, I’ll check it out, but again, I trust very little I get from the media these days. ;)

  • Pimpcessa

    What are your thoughts on a crime bill for mass incarceration?

  • John Dow

    He has no thoughts, he is a brainwashed idiot (who also upvotes his own comments). He «thinks» what media want him to think, he says what media tell him to say, he believes what media want him to believe in etc. He is a perfect modern slave.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    It’s never enough, the man deserves all the ridicule.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    LOL !
    Are you actually being serious here?

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Never underestimate people’s ignorance, hate & fear.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    He’s EVERYONE’S problem and you’ll be seeing evidence of that soon enough.

  • Pimpcessa

    Quit drinking the koolaid. It’s making you quite paranoid…..and a little too angry.

  • Pimpcessa

    You are sounding rather hateful and paranoid yourself. You may want to check out the definition of both of those words, and take a good look in the mirror. Clean it first, so the vision is crystal clear for you to see.

  • Pimpcessa

    Show me proof that he did. Otherwise, zip it. Paranoya self destroya……

  • Roger Dodger

    Hilarious skit! Someone must’ve taken Donald’s phone and stuck it in a drawer. Twitter countdown……………

  • Roger Dodger

    He’s got a full time gig hosting Match Game.
    Is that not good enough?

  • Roger Dodger

    It’s no different than ever but some people have very thin skin just like their savior.

  • Roger Dodger

    It’s never enough because Donald gives all of us daily material to work with ;)

  • Pimpcessa

    Well, at least you edited your post, so it could be understood.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    This is the 3rd time you’ve called me paranoid. I have nothing at all to be paranoid about.
    Calm the fuck down..

  • Pimpcessa

    Awww, don’t take it so personal. You sound pretty angry…..as well as paranoid…

  • ola akande

    lmao arent u the same guy who thought Chris Brown pulled a gun on a girl in his house than threw the gun in his backyard & somehow the police couldn’t find it after searching his property with watch dogs & a full staff for like 48 hours??

    so how’d that turn out for u? lmaooo

    go troll ppl on sum Reddit pages

    & ill up vote that just for u sweetheart ; )

  • ola akande

    its simple.

    Hillary signed that bill 20 something years ago & that would be her demise in the eyes of black ppl.

    if you ever watch the movie “13th” you’ll understand why Hillary shouldn’t have been the nominee. ppl forgive but they don’t forget

    the funny thing about this whole election cycle is, ppl can go on & on about everything that is wrong with Hillary Clinton & most of it is 100% true. the sad part is as bad as Hillary is, she’s still can’t out do Donald in that department lol….hes truly one of a kind

  • ola akande

    ur absolutely right.

    it makes no sense that a guy who wants to govern & bring a nation together should apologize 4 offending/mocking/disrespecting gays, blacks, latinos, women, native americans & physically disabled ppl

    i agree

  • Pimpcessa

    You evidently didn’t read my post. I don’t apologize to racists either. Don’t get confused, Hillary couldn’t care less about minorities, until she’s busy propping them up behind her as she’s running for office.

  • Pimpcessa

    “Hillary” signed that bill 20 years ago???

  • ola akande

    she’s a politician, thats what politicians on both sides do lmao

    the difference is they don’t mock them to their face….thats what Donald does

  • ola akande

    i misspoke, she didn’t sign it but she was the lead proponent of it. everybody remembers her speech….she sealed her fate on that fateful day. in hindsight i see what she was trying to do & in theory it was a good idea BUT u can’t police, the police…many minorities paid a price once that bill came 2 pass.

    black ppl don’t forget

  • Pimpcessa

    Apparently they do. Did you see her conventions loaded with the black community? I found it quite disturbing, and her sneers, of “I got this thing wrapped up” because of the minority support disgusted me.

    And I disagree when you say you “can’t police the police”. It should be done vigorously, to weed out the bad seeds. Additionally, ALL business, and especially all government office’s, should have a system of checks and balances.

    The Clinton Foundation is, and Hillary herself, has had a history of strong ties to Russia. Google this: Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Wall Street Journal article. It’s pretty interesting read. Obviously Clinton got on the wrong side of Putin.
