Saturday Night Live is cranking up the holiday spirit by making Kenan Thompson a mall Santa Clause and Kate McKinnon his helper elf, but with so much going on in the world, it's hard to focus on the simple, material things in life.
Another child wants Santa to tell him why "players kneel during the national anthem?".
Jessica wants to follow-up on Tyler's question.
Santa replied that Franken was on the naughty list, which led to a question about whether Moore was also on that list.
The skit shows children asking about the names on Santa's naughty list this year and whether it includes men accused of sexual harassment, specifically Sen. Well, Amy the elf reminds us that he has 19 accusers and counting.
'Trump basically just made the announcement and then he flipped a cigarette and walked away in slow motion, ' Jost said, to an accompany picture of Trump standing in front of a massive explosion.
The lesson learned by one of the children? The young boy asked Santa if Roy Moore was also on the Naughty List. "If you admit you did something wrong, you get in trouble". "But if you deny it, they let you keep your job!"
As Santa begins to get flustered by the questions, the next few kids to visit bring questions about the recently-passed tax reform bill, opioids, and the potential for an American embassy to be built in Jerusalem following U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
"Oh my goodness, OK, Jenny, Jenny, listen to me", she says. "And we seem to have lost all perspective on what's naughty or nice", McKinnon told her. "I know that things seem particularly insane".
McKinnon'S elf continued, "But as bad as things might seem, I promise you, Jenny, it will be okay". "Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not for another three years, 42 days and 24 minutes", she says, referencing the time remaining in President Trump's current term. As she responded to McKinnon, "Just in case: I'm putting all my money in Bitcoin".
