'SNL' mocks Trump, Putin and ties with Exxon CEO

Last night, Vladimir Putin visited Donald Trump-played by Alec Baldwin-at Trump Towers during the opening skit on Saturday Night Live.

Beck Bennett ― playing a shirtless Putin ― then came out of the fireplace to give Trump a special Christmas "Elf on the Shelf" gift, in reference to a Central Intelligence Agency report that Russian Federation interfered with the presidential election. In another sketch during the show, Kate McKinnon appears as Hillary Clinton and does a riff on a scene from Love Actually.

"Please, Mr. Trump, you are the gift", Putin assures him.

When it came time for gifts, Putin instructs them Trumps to keep their gift next to the internet router all year - before it starts emitting a high-pitched electronic sound. "You don't expect Tom Brady to tell the ref, 'Hey, let me try that touchdown pass again".

"Am I being Scrooged?" asks Trump. "This guy is blowing my mind".

The mystery is soon solved when Bennett's shirtless Putin pops out of the fireplace.

"I know, all lies, made up by some very bitter people who need to move on!" He was also awarded Putin's Order of Friendship in 2013.

Goodman, a frequent "SNL" guest host, adopts a thick Texas drawl for his portrayal of Tillerson, who is in for a rough confirmation process given his opposition to sanctions on Russian Federation, his firm's business relationships there and his personal friendship with Putin. This has so much energy.

"Don't worry about it", Putin replies.

Casey Affleck hosted Saturday Night Live's Christmas special, and the Manchester By the Sea star got some help from some veteran SNL hosts and even some former cast-members.

So far, Trump has not tweeted his take on the latest SNL episode as he did two weeks ago.
