In tonight’s SNL cold open, Alec Balwin returns and Michael Che steps out from behind the “Weekend Update” desk to play Lester Holt and basically reproduce their interview from earlier this week. After getting Trump to admit to obstruction of justice, Holt giddily says, “Is it over? Did I do it?” before realizing, “No, I didn’t. Nothing matters. Absolutely nothing matters anymore.” It’s funny because it’s true.

They also nailed Paul Ryan (who serves Trump ice cream and eats dog food) to the wall and went after Trump’s penis size and the way he sits, as though always on a toilet. Wow. SNL goes after Trump hard this week.
