SNL Absolutely DESTROYS GOP Candidates In Cold Opening (VIDEO)

There was plenty of crazy material from the Republicans this week and in order to cover as much of their embarrassing antics as possible, NBC’s Saturday Night Live broke with their usual format and jammed four openings on their show last night. The result was a series of hilarious and stinging skits.

It all began with Beck Bennett as Jake Tapper when he hosted the week-in-review montage which highlighted Darrell Hammond as Donald Trump telling the world how great he his with a bewildered looking Chris Christie, played by Bobby Moynihan, staring in the background. Hammond-as-Trump said:

“I really am running the best campaign, aren’t I? The media’s saying they haven’t seen anything like this, not since Germany in the 1930s. I mean, everyone loves me: racists, ugly racists, people who didn’t know they were racist.”

Then it was the hilarious Kate McKinnon playing Hillary Clinton giving a victory speech for her post-Super Tuesday victory:

“Thank you for trusting that I, Hillary Clinton, can bring this country together. Just like I brought these ten black people and one Muslim person together behind me tonight for this speech.”

Then it was Bennett-as-Tapper interviewing Ted Cruz, played by Taran Killam, but not before a warning for the audience that they were about to see Ted Cruz’s “whole face.” Asked about Thursday’s GOP debate, Killam-as-Cruz said:

“The debate was so much fun. I talked policy, I laid out my plan for America, and right at the end I ate a tiny, little white booger off my lip.”

Then finally Mitt Romney, played by Jason Sudeikis, joined Bennet-as-Tapper to discuss Donald Trump:

“For the last nine months, I’ve sat down and watched Donald Trump say something every day that was either racist or sexist. And we in the GOP … we do not say racist and sexist things; we imply them subtly over decades and decades of policy.”
