Stormy Daniels mocks Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live”
She played herself in the opening sketch, which also featured Alec Baldwin’s Trump imitation, Ben Stiller as Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, and Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump. The seven-minute sketch shows Cohen fielding calls from Trump and various other characters while the FBI listens in. Towards the end of the skit, Trump asks Cohen to “call up Stormy Daniels and fix this once and for all.” And while viewers were likely expecting an SNL cast member to appear on screen, they were shocked to see Stormy herself on the line.
For her part in the sketch, she offers some solid one-liners, like when Trump asks her what she needs for “this to all go away,” and she responds with: “A resignation.” At another point, she references Trump’s climate change denial, saying, “I know you don’t believe in climate change but a storm’s a coming baby.”
Trump has yet to respond to the sketch, but based on social media reactions, it seems as though viewers are anticipating an angry tweetstorm. “Trump’s Twitter tomorrow is gonna be lit,” one SNL fan wrote in response. But mostly, viewers took to social media to praise Stormy’s performance, with comments like “OMG STORMY DANIELS WAS JUST IN THE BEST OPENING SKIT ON SNL EVER!!” Who knows…perhaps we have a brand-new SNL star in the making.
Stormy Daniels on SNL, man Trump’s Twitter tomorrow is gonna be lit
