Bill Hader and John Goodman Play Ousted Trump Administration Officials in Saturday Night Live Cold Open
From TIME - March 18, 2018

Bill Hader, John Goodman and Fred Armisen came together to mock the revolving door of Trump administration departures in the cold open of this weeks Saturday Night Live.

The actors portrayed ousted White House officials and insiders commenting on a week that saw high-profile dismissals from the Trump administration, while appearing on CNNs Anderson Cooper 360, with Cooper played by SNL cast member Alex Moffat. The sketch also included an appearance from Kate McKinnon as she portrayed Attorney General Jefferson Sessions, still excited from his firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

In a surprise guest appearance on the show, Goodman played former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was ousted this week after President Donald Trump tweeted his firing.

Its just crazy how one day youre the CEO of Exxon, a $50 billion company, and the next day you get fired by a man who used to sell steaks in the mail, Goodman, playing an agitated Tillerson, said, shattering a glass of water in his hand.

Hader, the former SNL cast member who hosted Saturdays episode, reprised his impression of Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director who was fired just 10 days into his role last summer.

Appearing in the first suit made by the Olive Garden, Hader as The Mooch answered Moffats question of what he has been up to lately.
