‘SNL’ shows Trump decorating Christmas ‘tree of shame’ with ousted WH staffers

NBC/SNL

Actor Alec Baldwin reprised his role as President Trump on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, during which he decorated his Christmas “tree of shame.”

The tree, which features “losers and haters,” includes ornaments with the faces of fired and ousted White House staffers as well as former FBI Director James Comey. 

Other ornaments included Anthony Scaramucci and Michael Flynn.

Johansson’s Ivanka Trump gave the president a Roy Moore ornament for the Christmas tree as well as a Madball.

“I tried to make a [Stephen] Bannon ornament but his face wouldn’t fit, so I brought you a Madball, instead,” she says.

The skit also included Kate McKinnon as both Kellyanne Conway and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was an Elf on the Shelf displayed in the White House. 

“SNL” also took aim at Omarosa Manigault Newman’s ouster this week, with cast member Leslie Jones portraying the former “Apprentice” star and White House adviser. 

Jones stands outside the White House banging on the windows and demanding to be let in, even knocking out a member of the Secret Service.

“She’s a tough cookie,” Trump says to first lady Melania Trump. “I think we’ll have to move.”

The skit ends with Jones’s Manigault Newman holding up a boombox playing “The Apprentice” theme song, asking to be let back in.

“Take me back, I’ll always love you,” she says, holding the boombox.

Manigault Newman left the White House this week. CBS News reported that she set off White House alarms trying to enter the residence and speak with Trump after her firing.
