Saturday Night Live Brings Christmas To The White House In Cold Open

President Donald Trump gets his own Christmas Carol in the cold open from Dec. 2's Saoirse Ronan-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live.

The clip kicks off with Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway trying to convince Alec Baldwin's Trump to return to the White House Christmas party. However, he says that he's not in the Christmas spirit, eventually prompting a visit from Mikey Day's Michael Flynn, "the ghost of witness flipped."

Flynn warns that Trump will be visited by three people from his past, kicking off with Alex Moffatt's Billy Bush. The fantasies are interrupted by Cecily Strong's Melania Trump, who tries to get her husband to come see her decorations, which she describes as "a beautiful, festive hallway of dead branches and mysterious shadows, then when you open the elevator, blood comes out."

Once Melania leaves, the ghosts return, starting with Beck Bennett's Vladimir Putin and ending with McKinnon again, playing double duty as Hillary Clinton, taunting Day's Flynn with a "lock him up" chant. The clip ends with Baldwin's Trump kicking off the show with the signature "live from New York" introduction.

Ronan, coming off the critically-acclaimed Lady Bird, was the first Saturday Night Live host of December, performing along with musical guest U2. The Dec. 9 episode will see The Disaster Artist star James Franco taking on hosting duties with musical guest SZA, while Dec. 16 will be hosted by Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle's Kevin Hart with musical guest The Foo Fighters.

Saturday Night Live airs on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
