Saturday Night Live dug into the politics of Christmas dinner this weekend in the cold open.
The sketch featured three families in different parts of the country discussing the potential impeachment of President Trump and the 2020 election.
“They finally did it! They’re impeaching Trump,” an excited Cecily Strong said at a liberal family’s holiday dinner in San Francisco. “I don’t know what took them so long. Trump is a criminal!” added her husband, played by Kyle Mooney.
The sketch then jumped to a conservative family in Charleston, South Carolina, where a furious Beck Bennett called the impeachment process a “disgrace.”
“Well, they did it. They’re impeaching Trump. It’s a disgrace,” he said. “I’m sorry, what crime did he even commit?”
But in Atlanta, an African American dad was more interested in the upcoming Bad Boys sequel than the impeachment hearings.
“Do y’all think Bad Boys III will be good or not?” Kenan Thompson asked his family. “I mean, it’s got to be good, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back together.
His daughter, played by Ego Nwodim, expressed doubts that the film will be worth the wait. Chris Redd then said he wanted to talk politics, instead of movies.
“Oh, you mean how Trump is definitely getting impeached and then definitely getting reelected? I’m good,” Thompson replied. He then brought up The Masked Singer.
“Who do you think is going to get voted off The Masked Singer next week? I think it’s the Fox,” Thompson said.
“You mean Wayne Brady?” asked Nwodim.
“What? It’s obviously Jamie Foxx,” Thompson responded. “I bet you Jamie Foxx could beat Trump.”
