    Anyone else notice that other than the opening and Weekend Update, there were very few references to Trump?

    Maybe that was SNL's present to Trump.

    Yeah - but of course the Cold Open and Weekend Update tend to be the longest sketches.

    Foo Fighters were really good last night and dammit I missed 'em in Boise last week! :(

    I think that's the regular pattern isn't it?

    That Sarah Sanders actress needs to learn how to put on a permanent scowl. The real Sanders has never smiled.

    I think a stagehand should pop a rotten onion into her mouth just before she goes onstage. That oughta give the desired effect.

    Like my friend OldLady says - Barron'll work if we can just see the kid smile for once.
    The dang silver spoon kid looks entirely miserable, but hey ...
    Donald Trump is his Dad

    C'mon -- would you be smiling in that position? I'd be planning an escape route.

    Agreed, the perma-scowl is not a particularly good look
    When you think about the plight of both Barron and Sarah Huck, the perma-scowl is kind of understandable.
    If Donald Trump or Mike Huckabee were my father, I'd scowl too! :wink:

    I'd probably tolerate it long enough to know that my trust fund was all set up ..
    Then do the fandango!
