SNL Tackles Naughty List Members-Moore, Lauer, Franken In Cold Open

Courtesy of NBC View View 27

The barb was a nod to those who have pointed out the seeming inequity of consequences for those accused of sexual misconduct. Then, when he found out Franken had earned himself a spot on Santa's naughty list, he continued, "And what about Roy Mooore, which list is he on?"

"Is President Trump on the naughty list?" one little girl asked. Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Steve Martin made appearances in the crowd, all claiming to be there for musical guest SZA and made jealous comments about how they weren't hosting.

After asking Keenan Thompson's Santa for a Mega Bloks dinosaur, one of the young boys then follows up with, "What did Al Franken do?".

Another child wants Santa to tell him why "players kneel during the national anthem?".

McKinnon's elf chimed in, "19 accusers". After explaining that Trump might have said or done a few naughty things, McKinnon's elf interjected with a sly grin.

'I'm sure we can all learn a lesson from what's going on in the news, ' Santa told one girl. "I learned that if you admit you did something wrong, you get in trouble", she began. "But, if you deny it, they let you keep your job".

The last little girl, Jenny, said she didn't want any presents, she just wanted everything to be OK.

But "most people in America are good people, and eventually good people will fix our country", McKinnon says.

The topic got a solo spotlight in another early sketch: In "Sexual Harassment Charlie", two corporate employees - a brusk, high-ranking CFO, played by James Franco, and Kenan Thompson's folksy old "front desk guy" Charlie - have been fired and are apologizing to their gathered colleagues (Melissa Villaseñor, Cecily Strong, Leslie Jones) for sexually harassing them. "I never thought I'd say this, but I think our public schools are too good!"

McKinnon tried to reassure another girl that while things seem "truly mind-bendingly insane" everything will be OK "maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not for another 3 years, 42 days and 24 minutes". "I know that things seem particularly insane".

For a little added insurance, though, the kid's putting all her money in Bitcoin.

The skit addressed a number of other sexual misconduct allegations that have come to light in recent weeks, including past allegations against Trump and those against Franken.
