"I guess you could say that Al Franken is on Santa's naughty list this year", Santa said. Ryan promises "entitlement reform" in 2018 MORE (D-Minn.), Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Trump.

"No", she replies. "And in this climate can you just call me Amy?" she retorts. Franken, the Democratic senator from Minnesota (and former "SNL" cast member) announced last week he would resign from Congress amid numerous allegations he inappropriately touched women.
'Trump basically just made the announcement and then he flipped a cigarette and walked away in slow motion, ' Jost said, to an accompany picture of Trump standing in front of a massive explosion.
He continued: 'Calm down Democrats!
"And what about Roy Moore?". "You're the party of the morality the same way Don Jr.is the handsome Trump brother - nobody actually likes you".
