Watch ‘SNL’ Open With ‘Impeachment Trial You Wish Had Happened’

Watch ‘SNL’ Open With ‘Impeachment Trial You Wish Had Happened’”

"In this trial, witnesses were known as" because that is the way the damn trial functions", Thompson's Mathis explained.

"The Feb. 1 installment of this late-night sketch comedy series kicked off with" The Trial You Wish Had Happened", a chilly open sketch comprising Kenan Thompson as Judge Mathis (yes, TV's Judge Mathis) taking on the event from Mikey Day as Chief Justice John Roberts.

"This court needs a real judge who has a big brass judge under his skirt", Mathis told the senate.

Next to enter the courtroom is Mitch McConnell, played by Beck Bennett, who reminds the American people 'that all men are innocent after proven guilty'.

The judge asks: 'And why are you only coming out with this now?'

"The things I saw President Trump do and say, made me deeply anxious about the future of democracy", Bolton barked out. Thompson's Mathis requested point-blank. Clinton comments on Sanders' split, "cruel" and "a lie" The Palestinian Authority interrupts security ties with the U.S. and Israel after the Trump peace plan was announced MORE "They Wished". "It's called Harry Potter and the room it happened in".

Another surprise guest - Hunter Biden - takes the witness box next.

"The court is calling Hunter Biden", says Thompson's Mathis, leading Seth Davidson to the process with a vape in hand on a hoverboard.

The sketch pokes fun at allegations Trump made that Joe Biden tried to help Hunter's business interests in Ukraine.

"The president is just kind of pointing at me to distract from his own crimes", adding his current job is on a "Brazilian money-laundering company called Nepotismo". Oh no wait, that is the president's mum.

The appearance was the first of the year for Baldwin's Trump, who arrived shuffling behind a walker in a nod to the ongoing sexual assault trial of Harvey Weinstein.

"It would make sense because Harvey and I overlap in a few areas", Trump said, with a shrug. "How could I withhold aid from the Ukraine, I can barely get around the house", Trump meekly offered.

Later in the sketch, the president has changed into a Phil Spector wig.

"There is no way this man Trump just fulfilled using two Uks", he stated, as in just two Ukranians.

Later, since the imaginary trial ends up being about as partisan as the real trial, Trump made a decision to get some stuff off his chest.

'Ladies and gentlemen of this government place.

"Ladies and gentlemen of this government place, what I've learned from this trial is that clearly, nothing I do or say has any outcome so I'd like to come clean about everything". "The call with the Ukraine wasn't ideal, it was illegal and frankly it was a butt dial". Additionally, I watch CNN all the time and it is great. I hate the following states: Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, and West Virginia - West Carolina, I'm sorry. I cheat all of the time: in golf, taxation, elections, wives, in toilet scales. I'm not 239 pounds, I'm 475 pounds. "What else? Oh, I cut the funding to the CDC so this Wang-Chung virus is really going to be bad".

The sketch comes as the eighth confirmed case of the virus in the USA was announced Friday - and the first suspected case in New York City revealed Saturday. Trump is likely to be released from charges next week after the GOP senators blocked an application for new testimony in the trial of the upper chamber.

Parliament voted after an investigation into its alleged dealings with Ukraine against Trump for abuse of power and congressional obstruction.

Fearing Trump will be found guilty, McConnell, Graham and Bolton belt out "Send in the Clowns".
