Matt Lauer, Roy Moore on Santa's naughty list on 'SNL'

He groused that Al Franken had quit the Senate due to claims of sexual harassment, 'and yet uncle Bad Touch is up four points in Alabama'. Well, Amy the elf reminds us that he has 19 accusers and counting. Franken, who resigned this week over allegations, was a writer for "SNL" in the 70's and 80's.

The girl also asked Santa, "What did Al Franken do?"

Che, meanwhile, complained about Roy Moore's continued strength in opinion polls despite allegations of child sexual abuse.

Santa continues to grow more and more exasperated when children keep coming up to him with controversial topics like National Football League anthem kneelers, Matt Lauer, and whether President Trump is on the naughty list this year.

"It's more of a registry", replied Kate McKinnon's helpful elf, asking Santa to refrain from calling her Sugar Plum "in this climate".

Kids had a lot of questions for Santa in the "Saturday Night Live" cold open this week, including whether President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE is on the naughty list.


Topics broached went beyond the many men accused of sexual misconduct over the past few months, however: As Santa's visitors noted, there's a divisive tax bill on the verge of passing Congress, an opioid epidemic still ravaging parts of the country, and even child labor abuses happening around the world.

Finally, a little girl named Jenny said all she wanted for Christmas was for everything to be OK.

Jessica agrees, saying she's learned that "if you admit you get something wrong, you get in trouble. But if you deny it, you get to keep your job!" Like truly mind-bendingly insane, and we seem to have lost all perspective on what's naughty or nice'.

"Okay, good", Jenny said.

"I know", the girl replied.

"Oh, you mean toy like the one Matt Lauer gave to his coworker?" the girl shoots back. It will be in "three years, 42 days and 24 minutes" or whenever Trump is out of office.
