Adjust Comment Print

"Saturday Night Live's" attempt to get in the Christmas spirit was quickly stifled when kids asked Santa some hard-hitting, uncomfortable questions.

Al Franken did, Thompson hurriedly replied, "I guess you could say that Al Franken is on Santa's naughty list this year". After some stammering, Santa tried pushing the question off to an elf (Kate McKinnon), who didn't appreciate being called Sugar Plum. Thompson ultimately tells Tyler that Franken is on Santa's naughty list this year.

Franken, who faced mounting pressure to leave his position as U.S. Senator after being accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women, formally resigned on Thursday in a speech that took aim at such Republicans as President Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, both of whom have faced similar allegations but outright deny them.

Other children ask about other President Donald Trump's accusers, former "Today" host Matt Lauer's sex toys, kneeling National Football League players, tax reform benefits, feminazis, opioid abuse, the Tel Aviv embassy move, Fox News coverage and bitcoin investing.

The Santa, played by Kenan Thompson, struggled to do his job as a string of adorable moppets asked awkward questions about topical issues.

Another girl told Santa, "I don't want any presents this year". But it's not over... the kid follows up by asking what list Roy Moore would be on.

"I learned that if you admit you did something wrong, you get in trouble", she said.

"It's not really a list, it's more of a registry", McKinnson explains.

"We sure can!" the girl replies cheerfully. Like truly mind-bendingly insane, and we seem to have lost all perspective on what's naughty or nice'.

When that joke drew disapproving oohs and moans, Che added, "I said, worst thing". "I've seen Fox News".

McKinnon'S elf continued, "But as bad as things might seem, I promise you, Jenny, it will be okay".

"Just in case", says Jenny, "I'm putting all my money in Bitcoin". Al Franken, who used to work on the show.

Upon being asked by Thompson whether he wants a toy for Christmas, one boy says, "Like the one Matt Lauer gave to his co-worker?"
