Donald Trump Scared and Horny Over Stormy Daniels in SNL Cold Open (See!)

Donald Trump finally met Stormy Daniels and confided that he was scared and horny at the same time. At least that’s how it played out on “Saturday Night Live’s” cold open last night. Stormy, aka Stephanie Clifford, played herself while an all-star cast filled in for Trump’s inner circle. Kate McKinnon deserves special mention for her chameleon-like performance as Trump’s new lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, the “greatest legal mind” since “My Cousin Vinny,” Trump proclaims....

Dua Lipa Sets UK on Fire; Get Ready for New British Invasion (Photos, Video)

Dua Lipa is about to lead a new British music invasion that’s likely to race ahead of such UK stars as Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding. Lipa exudes the exotic sensuality of Ora and the power pop vocals of Goulding with a steely determination to get to the top. “For a female artist, it takes a lot more to be taken seriously if you’re not sat down at a piano or with a guitar, you know? For a male artist, people instantly assume they write their own music, but for women, they assume it’s all manufactured,” she told British GQ in an new interview....

Rex Tillerson Spills to Anderson Cooper on Trump Firing (See the Video)

Rex Tillerson, the big stoic Texan who served as Secretary of State–until he got Trump dumped over Twitter– unloaded to CNN’s Anderson Cooper. He can’t believe the former CEO of $50 billion Exxon-Mobil could be fired by a “man who used to sell steaks in the mail.” But, hey, this is “Saturday Nigh Live.” Fred Armisten returned as Trump tell-all author Michael Wolff and Bill Hader reprised his role as the bombastic Anthony Scaramucci. Kate McKinnon led off the spot as U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions....

Robert Mueller Can’t Get It Up for Collusion on ‘Saturday Night Live’ (See!)

Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong re-enact “The Bachelor” with a twist on “Saturday Night Live.” McKinnon is Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is just about to jilt his love interest in the worst possible way. He can’t get it up for collusion. The Mueller investigation has been hanging over Donald Trump’s presidency since he took office. Four top aides have been indicted or pleaded guilty along with 13 Russian hackers, who disrupted the 2016 election with fake news....

Donald Trump Has Answer to Gun Crisis, Then He Doesn’t on SNL (Watch!)

Donald Trump did his best to show action on the gun crisis, while following the National Rifle Association agenda–do nothing. Actually it was Alec Baldwin reprising his role as The Donald on “Saturday Night Live.” But who can tell the difference these days? Baldwin was in fighting form lampooning the president’s buffoonery as a policymaker. In fact, we know he’s so good because Trump thinks he’s so bad....

Steve Bannon Death Character Revealed on ‘SNL;’ And It’s…. (Watch!)

Steve Bannon has always been portrayed as Death incarnate in “Saturday Night Live” cold opens, and this week the actor under the cloak was finally unmasked to gasps from the audience. Who was it? Alec Baldwin, of course, is classic as Trump. Kate McKinnon has been stellar playing Kellyann Conway and Melissa McCarthy was hilarious playing former White House spokesman Sean Spicer....

It’s a Donald Trump Christmas on SNL, Complete With Tree of Shame (watch!)

Donald Trump and family gather for the traditional decorating of the White House Christmas tree (maybe for the last time) in a hilarious “Saturday Night Live” skit that brings back all our favorite characters, including a raving mad Omarosa.

Kids Have Darnedest Things on Their Santa Wish Lists on SNL (Watch!)

Kate McKinnon plays elf Sugarplum, but in this climate just call her Amy. ...

Jason Aldean Vegas Shooting Tribute Ignores Elephant in Room (watch!)

Jason Aldean, who was performing when the Las Vegas shooter opened fire, gave a moving tribute to the victims on “Saturday Night Live,” but he never mentioned the nation’s failure to protect its citizens with reasonable gun controls. The National Rifle Association issued a statement in the wake of the shooting saying preventing “law abiding” citizens from owning guns is not the answer. But every gun owner is law abiding until he, or she, pulls the trigger. The Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, had no criminal record or history of violence or mental illness. ...

Gal Gadot Makes Every Lesbian’s Nightmare Come True on SNL (Watch!)

Gal Gadot spoofed her Wonder Woman character in “Saturday Night Live” skit that poked fun at lesbian’s worst nightmare. That would be landing on the mythical island of Themyscira and discovering none of the Amazonian women were gay. Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon play Drea and Megan, lesbians who think they’ve hit the jackpot when they wash up on shore in a row boat....

Haim Starts Sexy Dance Party in New ‘Little of Your Love’ Video (Watch!)

Este, Danielle and Alana Haim, better known as the eponymous all-girl trio “Haim,” turn a bar into a dance party in a new video for their catchy tune “Little of Your Love.” The party, in what looks like a country-western honky-tonk, even has some line dancing. But the music is pure pop. "Little of Your Love” is the fourth track they’ve released as a video. Noted Director Paul Thomas Anderson has collaborated on the album. ...
