Jeff Sessions impugned in SNL skit

“Saturday Night Live” opened last night’s show with a skit mocking Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a way it never ridiculed former Democratic attorneys general Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch, who served in the Obama administration.

The skit began with Sessions, portrayed by actress Kate McKinnon, sitting on a park bench reminiscent of a scene in the movie “Forest Gump.”

“I’m the attorney general of the whole United States. I got to meet the president and everything,” McKinnon’s Sessions character told actress Leslie Jones while eating chocolates from a box.

“I always say, life is like a box of chocolates,” Sessions continued, repeating a famous quote from the movie.

“Sure are a whole lot of brown ones in there,” he continued, with a thinly veiled implication of racism.

The scene also derided White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

While holding the widely-disseminated picture of Conway on her knees on a couch in the Oval Office, Sessions said, “This is my best, good friend Kellyanne — she ain’t got no legs. We’re about as close as peas and carrots. She’s the best talker you ever heard. They say she could sell stink to a skunk, but they don’t let her talk anymore.”

The skit continued with Sessions speaking to several other characters and openly admitting that he wrongly engaged with a Russian ambassador. Sessions subsequently bragged about being on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, only to find it was a story about himself allegedly committing perjury.

“Yeah, I had a bad week,” Sessions said.

Later in the scene, Russian president Vladimir Putin — portrayed by actor Beck Bennett — arrived and gave Sessions a fist bump.

“This meeting never happened,” Bennett’s Putin character said.

“I wasn’t gonna remember it, anyway,” Sessions replied.

The skit ended with actress Octavia Spencer, who famously played Minny in the 2011 movie, “The Help,” arriving on the scene carrying a pie.

“Are you Jeff Sessions, the one Coretta Scott King wrote that letter about?” the Minny character asked.

“Oh, wow, that was 40 years ago,” Sessions replied. “You still remember that?”

“Oh, a lot of people in Alabama remember that, sir,” Minny retorted.

“And I have a pie I made especially for you,” she added, implying that it was the famous pie she made out of human feces and served in “The Help.”

“That is a mighty kind gesture,” Sessions said to her. “Hey, is this what I think it is?”

“It is,” Minny said with a smirk.

“Mmm, my favorite!” Session replied, taking a hearty bite of the pie.
