Jimmy Fallon Returns to His 'SNL' Roots for Jared Kushner Parody

House Democrats are calling on the feds to revoke Jared Kushner’s security clearance

The sketch opened with the president reminiscing about his first 100 days in the Oval Office and all the he's accomplished in that time, from getting nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court to... not much else. Baldwin, however, corrected him by saying: "Have you seen my tweets about North Korea?"

He went to list all the memories they've had in the Oval Office thus far, before Pence dutifully interjected after each event to remind Trump they actually took place at his Mar-a-Lago resort. Bannon's character, the Grim Reaper, was dragged out the door by another, larger Grim Reaper. Fallon's Kushner did not speak a word through it all.

Baldwin's Trump rises - in turn making a Russian Federation lapel pin visible - and says it's "elimination night", bringing to mind the "firing" of contestants on Trump's reality shows.

Bannon, of course, is the one banished. Word has been that Bannon's nationalism wasn't jiving with the idealogies of others close to Trump, like Kushner. "But don't worry, your journey doesn't end tonight", Trump says, "because you'll get to come back and decide if I go to prison".

The skit plays off the fact that Sean Spicer once really did dress as the Easter Bunny at the White House.

Trump announced that he's holding a photo of the adviser who will be allowed to stay in the White House.

Spicer stated that even Hitler didn't resort to using chemical weapons on his own people - a comment that drew immediate corrections and a storm of criticism for insensitivity and lack of knowledge of the Holocaust. "Spicey finally made a mistake".

He later apologized for the verbal debacle in an interview with CNN.

Spicer also characterized concentration camps as "holocaust centers" and later issued a groveling apology for his statements.

"Jared you're such an inspiration", Baldwin says.

Earlier this week Mr Trump told the New York Post, "Steve is a good guy, but I told them to straighten it out or I will".

Last night was no different as Jimmy Fallon joined Baldwin to mock the current America administration, The Tonight Show host playing Jared Kushner.

Saturday was SNL's first of four shows to be aired live at the same time across the continental United States and Canada.
