Donald Trump Chooses Walter White To Lead DEA In Perfect 'SNL' Skit
It looks like President-elect Trump has one more whiney tweet to send about "Saturday Night Live."
But this time, it won't be about Alec Baldwin. It'll be about Bryan Cranston.
Last night's episode (hosted by John Cena) featured an opening sketch that was a parody of CNN's "The Lead With Jake Tapper."
The segment's guests were none other than Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway and Bryan Cranston, as Walter White of "Breaking Bad."
Yes, the meth-making, kingpin drug dealer came out of hiding in order to serve on Trump's cabinet.
Honestly, this isn't such a huge stretch of the imagination. From giving Putin's friend a position as secretary of state to hiring a man who tweets fake news and is connected to pizzagate as the national security adviser, we'd basically believe anything when it comes to who Trump deems acceptable to bring to the oval office.
At least we can rely on "SNL" to call out Trump's extremely questionable cabinet picks.
Jake Tapper (played by Beck Bennett) had lots of questions about Trump's cabinet picks. He says,
"Kellyanne, it's almost like Mr. Trump appoints these people specifically to undermine the very agencies they head."
But McKinnon assured him that's not the case, saying, "No, Jake, they are not bad. They are alt-good."
Enter Walter White/Bryan Cranston, Trump's new pick to head the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
They talk about his experience as a high school science teacher for a little bit, then they get down to business about why they're excited he's part of the Trump administration.
McKinnon said, "Walter is actually a genius with chemicals and we're so lucky to get him. The top companies in the country had been knocking on his door for years, but he didn't answer."
Cranston responded, "I am the one who knocks." (Hehehe, "Breaking Bad" humor.)
Cranston says he likes Trump's style and is a really big fan of the wall Trump wants to build and charge to Mexico.
He said, "Nothing comes in from Mexico, meaning a lot less competition for the rest of us." "Uhhh... you mean jobs?" Bennett replies.
"Sure," says Cranston.
McKinnon says he came "highly recommended by Steve Bannon" (because that's comforting).
Cranston responded, "Oh yeah, Steve's the best. We've had some times."
Where did the Bannon find the elusive Walter White, you ask? Under the comment section on Breitbart.
When talking about why he's so supportive of President-elect Trump, White said, "Donald Trump and I agree, it's time to make America cook again. We want to fill this nation with red, white and a whole lot of blue."
