Mall Santa Answers Kids About Roy Moore, Al Franken And Matt Lauer

'Oh, you mean toy like the one Matt Lauer gave to his coworker?': SNL pokes fun at Santa's 'Naughty List' of alleged

The barb was a nod to those who have pointed out the seeming inequity of consequences for those accused of sexual misconduct. In a Shopping Mall Santa sketch, detailed here, children sat the woes of the modern world on Santa's lap, asking questions and making wishes about Al Franken, Roy Moore, Matt Lauer, kneeling football players and the Middle East.

"Is President Trump on the naughty list?" one little girl asked.

Jessica was shooed off after telling Santa she didn't fear lumps of coal in her stocking, with it being a dying industry and all, but things didn't get any better for him. McKinnon says it's "really more of a registry". After fumbling through a response, Santa chalks it up to the boy as Franken being on Santa's naughty list this year. When Santa says there's a lesson to be learned from all that's happening in the news, Jessica sums it up nicely when she says, "If you admit you did something wrong, you get in trouble". "That would be like you calling me and saying hey Cathy Anne are you planning on smoking crack again?" she said.

You see the Democrats hold themselves to a higher standard than anyone else, ' he said, 'which is why they always lose'.

Then came questions and comments from the kids about the NFL national anthem protests, the Republican tax plan, and on and on.

Another girl told Santa, "I don't want any presents this year".

"Okay, good", Jenny said.

McKinnon tried to reassure another girl that while things seem "truly mind-bendingly insane" everything will be OK "maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not for another 3 years, 42 days and 24 minutes".

McKinnon continued: "But as bad as things might seem, I promise you, it will be okay. Most people in America are good people, and eventually good people will fix our country".

For a little added insurance, though, the kid's putting all her money in Bitcoin.

Elsewhere on the episode, on which James Franco hosted and SZA was the musical guest, sexual harassers apologized to their workplace victims, and Michael Che went undercover as a liberal white woman named Gretchen.

The skit addressed a number of other sexual misconduct allegations that have come to light in recent weeks, including past allegations against Trump and those against Franken.
