"Alec Baldwin also told me, "I hope you choke to death" when I was on assignment, staking out his house", Palmeri said.

After taking its first hiatus of the 44th season, "Saturday Night Live" certainly had a stockpile of material it could have used for the first cold open back in three weeks.

McKinnon's Ingraham said that the liberal media was trying to label President Trump as a racist, but that "except for his words and actions throughout his life" that Trump isn't racist.

"All of a sudden, the term nationalist is bad", McKinnon's character said. "When I think of white nationalist I just think of a fun Fourth of July barbecue, the kind you don't have to call the cops on".

With Kate McKinnon taking on the role of Fox News host Laura Ingraham and Cecily Strong adding her manic comic energy to an wonderful impression of conservative pundit Jeanine Pirro, SNL didn't pull any punches when it came to slamming the right-leaning news organization.

"I haven't just heard about it, I have seen it with my own eyes", Pirro said, rolling footage of Americans fighting for holiday doorbusters.


The caravan was represented as a group of frenzied shoppers on Black Friday, a horde of zombies from 2013's "World War Z" and a mass of crabs scuttling along a beach. "Take a look at this footage of the caravan from earlier today..."

Strong also alluded to Trump's unsubstantiated comments about Middle Easterners possibly populating the marchers, saying the caravan has "hella Alladins".

Jeanine also claimed that the caravan was comprised of "everyone you've ever seen in your nightmares", including ISIS, the Menendez brothers, Thanos and several Papa Duke's.

"Basically, yeah", responded Thompson's Clarke.

"What is?" asked McKinnon's Ingraham.

The segment ended with tips for voting for blacks and Hispanics, advising to "never vote on Tuesdays". "And get this. The babies are pregnant".
