Porn star and presidential irritant Stormy Daniels popped up during the cold open on Saturday Night Live last night. Stormy is POTUS’ current least favorite person and SNL knows that there’s nothing in the world more funzies than pissing off our humorless egomaniac of a president. So they had her pop up during a Trump sketch amidst a cavalcade of guest stars including Ben Stiller as Trump’s praying-for-death attorney Michael Cohen, Martin Short as Trump’s ethically challenged (and crazy as hell) physician Dr. Harold Bornstein, Scarlett Johansson reprising her Ivanka Trump, and Jimmy Fallon as Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner. SNL’s MVP Kate McKinnon also debuted a startlingly accurate impression of gabby Trump hanger-on Rudy Guiliani, who continues to deplete all of the goodwill he inspired during 9/11.
While Alec Baldwin as Trump made cracks implying that hers is a pussy that he would like to re-grab, Stormy gamely shot off sassy lines (via Deadline).
After Trump says some salacious words to Daniels he orders her to stop this “act.”
“I work in adult films, we’re not really known for our acting,” Daniels fires back.
“What do you need for all this to go away?” Trump asks.
“A resignation,” she says.
“Yeah right,” Trump laughs. “Being President is like doing porn — once you do it, it’s hard to do anything else.”
It wrapped up with Stormy giving him a warning.
After a “polls being up” crack, Daniels says, “I know you don’t believe in climate change, but a storm is a-coming baby!”
Stormy delivered that line with all the pizzaz of your insurance carrier’s “Press 1 for…” voice recording, but hey, she’ll continue to make Trump’s wig crisp with fury and that’s a public service right there, so she gets a pass.
