‘SNL’ skewers Alabama Senate candidate and alleged child molester Roy Moore
“Saturday Night Live” took aim at Republican Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore in Saturday’s cold open. Moore, accused of making inappropriate advances and sexual contact by an Alabama woman when she was 14, has been at the center of controversy this week for the allegations which surfaced in a recent Washington Post expose.
Mikey Day, dressed in a cowboy hat and leather vest, appeared as Moore to meet with Beck Bennett’s vice president Mike Pence. “It’s all lies, I’m not that guy,” Day said.
“It’s hard to convince people you’re not into teen girls when you’re dressed like Woody from ‘Toy Story,’” Bennett replied.
Day’s Moore was looking for assistance, however. “Can’t you call the boss?” he asked. “I’m sorry, I’m not going to call Vladimir Putin about this,” said Bennett.
Kate McKinnon, reprising her role as Jeff Sessions, then emerged from a nearby cabinet to offer some advice to Day’s Moore. “I’m usually the creepiest one in the room but I look at you and I’m look, oof,” she told Day.
“You, sir, are too Alabama,” McKinnon told Day. She then dismissed Day and pulled out a stuffed possum from the cabinet.
