"Saturday Night Live" featured a press conference dedicated to the dog injured in a U.S. raid in Syria in which former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed.

Conan, the K-9 commando, then took questions from reporters, who asked, “Are you a good boy?” and “You were involved in a terrorist raid. Was that scary for you?”

Cast member Cecily Strong then joined the scene as a U.S. Army canine interpreter, who said Conan wasn’t happy with an altered image President Trump tweeted last week that showed him giving the dog a medal.

“Speaking of costumes, what is this janky fake medal the president put on my neck?” Strong, speaking for Conan, asked. “It just has a picture of a paw on it. What the hell is that? You don’t give humans a medal with a foot on it.”

Trump last Monday tweeted a declassified photo of the “wonderful” dog, praising him for his performance during the military operation. He hinted later in the week that the dog will visit the White House.

"Very cute recreation, but the 'live' version of Conan will be leaving the Middle East for the White House sometime next week!" Trump tweeted.
