SNL Cold Open: Jeff Sessions as Forrest Gump

This may be the best SNL cold open of the Trump season yet -- Kate McKinnon as Jeff Sessions -Forrest Gump. Mediaite has the video.

"This is my best good friend Kelly Ann, she ain't got no legs....They don't let her talk any more.

On Russia: "My lawyer said, Run Jeff-ey Run. So I ran and ran...."[More...]

And what will likely be the lead quote:

"Would you like a chocolate? I always say, life is like a box of chocolates. There sure are a lot of brown ones in there."

McKinnon plays a much better Jeff Sessions than Ms. Most Unimportant Person in the White House. I hope SNL lets her stick to Sessions.

    poke fun at Kelly Ann having no legs...after all, she lost them in the Bowling Green Massacre.

    Totally agree. I love that one. (none / 0) (#2)

    I woke up real early this morning and saw a link to it on my phone and it had me cracking up at 4 am.

    I think the humor is going to get sharper and more focused as time goes by and there are specific actions to work with.  No need for broad caricature like that Kellyanne sketch a couple of weeks ago that I didn't think was that funny.

    I thought McKinnon was pretty awesome as KAC. I found the skit where she was stalking Jake Tapper hysterical. This one had some pretty good parts too.
