Sitting on a park bench, Session regaled a number of passers-by with the story of how a boy from Alabama ended up in so much hot water.
Everyone's favorite chameleon Kate McKinnon reprised her role as slow-talkin" Attorney General Jeff Sessions - but this time with a Forest Gump twist to skewer the good "ole boy on "Saturday Night Live".
The White House themed jokes just keep coming after McKinnon opens with: "My name's Jeff, Jeff Sessions..."
STATEN ISLAND, NY- In its first live episode in three weeks, Saturday Night Live came back with a bang, thanks to Kate McKinnon's impression of Jeff Sessions.
At one point, he showed the now-famous photo of Kellyanne Conway sitting on an Oval Office couch with her legs tucked under her.
"We're about as close as peas and carrots", Sessions continued about Conway. Conway was the best talker but "they don't let her talk anymore", McKinnon's Sessions said. They say she could sell stink to the skunk. The Senator from up north started asking me all these questions about Russian Federation and if I ever talk to them. "Twice. You know, I talked to a fellow who was Russian on account of he was the Russian ambassador". Soon, Beck Bennett as Vladimir Putin showed up, shirtless as usual, on the bench.
Obviously the best part about the SNL Forrest Gump parody was when Octavia Spencer showed up as her former character from The Help, Minny. "I remember any name with "gay" "kiss" in it". "I got to meet the president and everything".
Minny was quick to recognize Sessions as the subject of Coretta Scott King's letter opposing Sessions' nomination to be a federal judge in 1986.
In her opening monologue, Spencer mocked the trend of confusing her movie "Hidden Figures" with the very different "Fences" and this year's Oscar victor, "Moonlight", just because all three feature predominantly black casts. I miss you Kelly.
So it's no surprise that McKinnon's Sessions had plenty to say on the subject. "Is this what I think it is?" asks McKinnon.
Saturday's SNL also included a spoof movie trailer about a Republican lawmaker who stood up to Trump.
Furthermore, the show cut away from the skits by showing McKinnon as Conway, on her phone, with her feet beneath her.
