Saturday Night Live has not backed away from it's politically charged jokes this season. During the SNL cold opening, Alec Baldwin made his return as Donald Trump, visiting the recently indicted Paul Manafort. Somehow they end up in the shower, and it is while they are in the shower that Baldwin connects the crimes of Harvey Weinstein to the president's.


“What an idiot that Harvey Weinstein is, he could have gotten away with all of it if he had gotten himself elected president,” says Baldwin as Trump, referring to the sixteen women who have come forward accusing the president of sexual assault before and after he was elected president of the United States.

Other segments of the show continued to bring up these allegations. Aidy Bryant, as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, dances along to Demi Lovato's song "Confident" in between a White House press briefing. During the sketch, Huckabee Sanders evades a question about from a reporter about the sixteen women's accusations towards President Trump.
