Kate McKinnon Plays Jeff Sessions in SNL's 'Forrest Gump' Skit

  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions

On the most surreal day of the Trump presidency so far, "Saturday Night Live" took a subtle approach to its skits.

"Hello, my name's Jeff, Jeff Sessions", McKinnon's Sessions said with that distinctive southern drawl.

In the latest SNL cold open, the incredibly amusing Kate McKinnon plays Sessions, who is hanging out at a bus stop. Kate McKinnon portrays Sessions as Forrest Gump in the classic bus stop scene where he chatted with a passerby. Oscar-nominated actress Octavia Spencer, 46, even showed off her acting chops for the hilarious sketch.

"You know when an airline loses you luggage, and you can't talk to the CEO so you end up screaming at some frazzled lady that's now got to spend her lunch break crying into a lean cuisine?' Che asked". If not, check out the skit below because it was a hit.

We thought "Saturday Night Live" might work Attorney General Jeff Sessions into the mix in its latest episode this week, but tonight's cold open delivered a trifecta of Alabama references.

Joking that she had a plan to profit from the continual mixup with a brand-new movie titled "Hidden Fence Light", Spencer said: "It's the story of three black women who send an introspective black boy to build a fence on the moon".

After a quick meeting with Beck Bennett's Vladimir Putin, McKinnon's Sessions then exchanged pleasantries with host Octavia Spencer, who reprised her role as The Help's Minny Jackson and baked a special pie especially for the Attorney General.

McKinnon's Sessions also goes onto talk with other strangers about the recent revelations about his contact with the Russian ambassador to the US which he denies, then admits and so on.

"I wasn't going to remember it anyway", McKinnon replies, before he departs.

They both "got to meet the president" and shake his hand - though in McKinnon's Session's case it was Trump, not JFK.

"She's the best talker you've ever heard", Sessions adds.

"I never talk to any Russians, ever", Sessions tells one person. I didn't know what to do. McKinnon was ready to crack up when she showed a controversial photo of Conway on a sofa in the Oval Office and said the Trump adviser had no legs. I started running, and running.

Saturday's SNL also included a spoof movie trailer about a Republican lawmaker who stood up to Trump.
