Michael Flynn, 'Ghost of Witness Flipped,' Haunts Trump on SNL

SNL Skit Imagines A Christmas Carol Starring Trump, Flynn

'Saturday Night Love' Cold Opening: Donald Trump Gets Ghostly Visits From Michael Flynn, Billy Bush, Hillary Clinton

On SNL, Trump's former national security adviser, played by Mikey Day in chains, implored the president (Alec Baldwin) to speak the truth "for the good of the country".

In the December 2 cold open, Trump's (Alec Baldwin) first visitor is Michael Flynn (Mikey Day), the ghost of witnesses flipped.

Alec Baldwin returned to the Oval Office this weekend on Saturday Night Live, where he was greeted by several ghosts of President Donald Trump's past.

First to arrive is Billy Bush, the Access Hollywood host who was sacked after hot mic audio tapes revealed he engaged in a lewd conversation with Trump that involved him bragging about "grabbing" women by their privates and kissing them without warning.

Flynn warns Trump: "Mr. President, there's a lot of people from your past that could come back to haunt you".

Baldwin's Trump refused and instead asked her to put together a duffle bag for him containing $5 million dollars, his passport, a fake moustache and a bucket of chicken. "Tonight you will be visited by three of them".

The parade of spirits is interrupted by a Melania Trump character, who implores her husband to return to the Christmas party and check out her decorations: "It's a handsome, festive hallway of dead branches and mysterious shadows". I've just got to announce the names every week like Powerball numbers.

Referencing the axing of longtime Today host Matt Lauer earlier this week, Bush added: "I'm looking pretty good in the NBC News division right now".

"It is I, Hillary Rodham Clinton", McKinnon said, draped in a black cloak.

The "SNL" sketch then continued with visits from the ghost of Christmas past, former host of NBC's "Today" Billy Bush (Alex Moffat), and Russian President Vladimir Putin (Beck Bennett) as Trump's present ghost.

"You, Donald, have given me the greatest Christmas gift of all - sexual gratification in the form of your slow demise", she said.

Then, the "ghost" of "Vladimir Putin" (Beck Bennett) appears, and finally, the ideal "ghost" comes to say "Lock him up!"
