'SNL' has Christmas message from Baldwin's Trump

"It will soon be replaced by the war with North Korea".

The two then turned to trimming the tree, with Baldwin's Mr Trump saying: "In the Christmas spirit I wanted to thank all the fantastic people who work for me, but because I can't help myself I also want to remember all the haters and losers I destroyed this year".

"That's right", Baldwin's Trump muses. "And you better throw me into the Christmas tree". "But because I can't help myself, we're gonna also remember all the haters and losers I destroyed this year and we're going to hang ornaments with their faces on it we're calling the tree of shame", he says.

First up is Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway, saying she has chosen an ornament with "disgraced" former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey on it.

A parade of familiar White House characters comes through to help them do this - and just happens to reflect special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's deepening investigation into whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Replied Pence: "Oh I don't like that song because it mentions gay apparel". "Because he lied to us, Mr. President, and he acted alone, without our knowledge".

As Omarosa Manigault Newman exits her job at the White House, a freakish video showing her less, er, stateswomanly side has emerged.

"For my ornaments, I brought Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci, whose mangled corpses I stepped over to get this job", she says.

"Too late, I see you in there, Donald. Nobody kicks Omarosa out the White House".

Jones' Omarosa made another appearance on the show during the Weekend Update segment in which she insisted that she was not fired.

The festivities are interrupted when Leslie Jones' Omarosa tries to enter the White House through a window, and soon after she is taken away by Secret Service, the president's next ornament arrives: Scarlett Johansson's Ivanka Trump. Scarlett Johansson made a return appearance as Ivanka - minus Jared, who was "packing a go-bag before the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrives".

Next Baldwin's president asked some White House aides to decorate the tree with Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway offering up one with an image of "disgraced F.B.I. director James Comey".

"You've got to cut the head off the snake", he added.
