Kate McKinnon just reprised her Jeff Sessions on SNL and it was BRUTAL (VIDEO)

Joseph McCormick March 5, 2017

Kate McKinnon has taken on embattled US Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Saturday Night Live, and quite a few shots were fired.

Cast member McKinnon reprised her impression Sessions in a Forrest Gump style skit, which featured… well lots.

Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions has declined to participate in an FBI investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Sessions has removed himself from the investigation as Democrats call for him to step down as Attorney General.

The calls come as it is revealed that Sessions met the Russian envoy during the US election campaign.

Sat on a park bench, McKinnon’s Sessions, is joined by various other cast members including Leslie Jones as his story about having met, or not met any Russians changes as various busses pull in and people get on and off.

The White House themed jokes just keep coming after McKinnon opens with: “My name’s Jeff, Jeff Sessions… I’m the attorney general of the whole United States.”

“I always say life is like a box of chocolates,” McKinnon adds, continuing: “Sure are a lot of brown ones in there,” prompting Jones to leave.

She goes on to say: “I never talked to any Russians ever,” but as a new passenger alights, she adds: “I talked to the Russians.”

McKinnon mentions Session’s meeting with Russia’s ambassador to the US, Sergei Kislyak, saying: “I met with a fellow who turned out to be Russian on account of he’s the Russian ambassador…”

She later adds: “HIs name was Sergei Kislyak. Now I remember any name with the words ‘gay kiss’ in it.”

Beck Bennett then appears as his shirtless Vladimir Putin, simply saying: “This meeting never happened.”

“I wasn’t going to remember it anyway,” McKinnon replies, before he departs.

Nobody is safe in the SNL opener, which also takes aim at Kellyanne Conway, as McKinnon pulls out a now infamous photo of Conway kneeling on an Oval Office couch, laughing a little, before she says: “But they don’t let her talk anymore. I miss you, Kelly!”

Finally McKinnon is joined by Octavia Spencer, who, saying she is “from a different movie”, proceeds to feed him a shit pie, in reference to Spencer’s role in ‘The Help’.

Check out the segment below:

Kristen Stewart last month took aim at Trump, saying he’s “obsessed” with her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson, and that she’s “so gay dude”.

Melissa McCarthy also took to SNL as Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

It is the latest in a string of harmful scandals, fuelling stories about Russian influence in Trump’s White House.

Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was previously forced to resign over secret communications with Russia, while last year Trump was forced to ditch campaign chief Paul Manafort after his ties to Russia became the subject of a CIA probe.
