On this week’s SNL, Beck Bennett’s Vladimir Putin dropped in on Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump to give him a Christmas gift. In the cold open of the show, Trump is talking to Kate McKinnon’s Kellyanne Conway about his inauguration when Vlad drops down the chimney with a bag full of gifts. “I got you a gift. This is Elf on the Shelf,” says Putin, revealing a doll with a glowing red eye. “It’s fun. You just put it right here next to internet router.” Kellyanne interrupts them to say Rex Tillerson has arrived, and things get real chummy when John Goodman saunters in as the future Secretary of State.
