SNL Skewers Julian Assange And Trump Brothers In Cold Open, And We Can’t Get Enough

“Saturday Night Live” has been at the top of its game as of lately. With President Donald Trump and his staff giving every comedian prime content, SNL has taken the opportunity to completely own every awkward and horrible situation when it comes to politics. From day one of the election, the comedians on SNL have given us some of the best skits we’ve ever seen – and, it doesn’t look like they’re stopping anytime soon. This weekend, Kate McKinnon dressed as Julian Assange in a skit called “The Mueller Files” and it was absolutely hilarious.

The concept behind the skit had to do with Assange having a shady meeting with Donald Trump Jr. (Mikey Day) in the basement of the Ecuadorian embassy in London. It happens to be interrupted by Eric Trump (Alex Moffat) and the entire thing is just straight up hilarious – and, apparently, based off of a true story. The Atlantic reported this week that the meeting may have taken place between Trump Jr. and Assange.

People were obviously obsessed with Kate McKinnon as Julian Assange – because, is there anything this woman can’t do?

I’d personally like to thank Kate McKinnon’s parents for gracing us with her existence.
