October 11, 2016
In the opening monologue of this week's Saturday night live begins with a mock Vice Presidential Debate between Pence and Kaine, and cuts to satirical video of Trump apology.
"It looks like Donald Trump finally got his wish: Access to a live microphone!"
Trump explains the Billy Bushgate tape to a blonde anchorwoman. "Come on Brooke, I was trying to look cool in front of Billy Bush. Back when I was just a young childish 59 year old man," says Alec Baldwin as Trump.
Later, Trump is caught again talking off camera, this time calling Ted Cruz a "pussy" for agreeing to endorse him.
The opening monologue also cuts to Clinton HQ, where Hillary says the Access Hollywood videotape is her reward "for all she's been through the last 30 years."
As is Traditional, at the end of the opening monologue, which is embedded on this page, Baldwin says "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!"
The show's "Weekend Update" segment, which has skewered Trump since the beginning of the campaign — even when he was on the show — was equally relentless.
Trump tried to brush his comments off as locker room talk, Colin Jost began. "What locker room? Penn State?"
Co-anchor Michael Che remarked that Trump had "apologized the way your drunk ex would."
"You know this isn't even the worst thing he's said. This is just the worst thing he's said to Billy Bush while miked on an Access Hollywood bus," Jost quipped.
"I don't think the problem women have with sexual assault is bad breath," Che said, referring to Trump's talk of Tic Tacs in the 2005 video. "That's like Bill Cosby using a coaster for his love potions."
