'SNL' brings out Fallon's Kushner and McCarthy's Spicer as the Easter Bunny

'SNL' brings out Fallon's Kushner and McCarthy's Spicer as the Easter Bunny

"It's hard to believe I've been President for nearly 100 days", Baldwin's Trump says from the Oval Office before listing off the numerous things he's done there.

Played by Alec Baldwin again, Trump is speaking with Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) about the highlights (or lowlights, depending on who you'd ask) of his presidency so far.

Trump then summons White House advisers Steve Bannon and Kushner for an "Apprentice"-like elimination segment". Bannon returned in his guise as the Grim Reaper and Jimmy Kimmel guested as a non-speaking Jared Kushner - complete with Iraq flack jacket and blue yacht club blazer.

President Donald Trump's antics have been compared to reality TV, so there's no question where Saturday Night Live got its inspiration for this cold open.

"Jared, Steve, standing before me are my two top advisors", Baldwin-as-Trump said.

'But don't worry, your journey doesn't end tonight because you will get to come back when the whole thing is over and decide if I go to prison.

Trump: "I met with the Chinese president". The president lauds Fallon's Kushner, calling him his "little Kushball", for being so ideal at showing how if you're born wealthy and marry into the Trump family, one can really accomplish things in life.

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner watch as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.S. President Donald Trump hold a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., March 17, 2017.

"Have you seen my tweets on North Korea?"

After losing, Bannon, played by his usual Grim Reaper, was then sent to hell while "Kushner" took over the president's desk as "Trump" sat at a much smaller desk to the side.

"Spicey finally made a mistake", he said. "Now, just...fix everything". The real Spicer also called concentration camps, "Holocaust centers".

"I am sensitive to the fact they were sent there on trains but at least they didn't have to fly united". He goes on to brag about taunting North Korea.

"Saturday Night Live" aired at the same time coast to coast Saturday, April 15, a first that allowed every viewer to experience it truly live.
