During the St. Patrick’s Day broadcast of “Saturday Night Live,” the cast mocked Attorney General Jeff Sessions regarding his firing of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.
The skit featured SNL’s Anderson Cooper, portrayed by Alex Moffat, asking Kate McKinnon, who played Sessions, why McCabe was dismissed.
“Mr. McCabe was in clear violation because of his lack of candor, I don’t know, I can’t even dance around,” McKinnon replied. “Trump made me do it. McCabe, he saw too much.”
Moffat then asked McKinnon whether Sessions had made the decision.
“I’m always down to clown, but this was sneaky, even for me,” she responded. “I’m just a simple man who wanted to make things bad for immigrants and now, here I am, taking away the pension of a Christian white.”
More from The Hill: “Sessions” was also asked about rumors that he might be the next to go. McKinnon as Sessions said he can’t believe he lasted this long in the administration, joking he is like the “Energizer Bunny.”
The skit comes after Sessions on Friday fired McCabe.
McCabe’s ouster came just days before he was scheduled to retire after more than 20 years at the bureau. McCabe had already stepped down under pressure in January and has been on a leave of absence since. McCabe quickly declared his termination and Trump’s needling against him were an effort to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, in which he could be a potential witness.
