Kids Have Darnedest Things on Their Santa Wish Lists on SNL

With the Christmas season upon us, what could be more fun for the kids than a visit with Santa Claus - on "Saturday Night Live"?

And finally, the doe-eyed child asks Father Christmas "Can you tell me - what did Al Franken do?". Kate McKinnon stands alongside Thompson, dressed as an elf.

"I guess you could say Al Franken is on Santa's naughty list this year", says SNL's Santa."What about Roy Moore?".

The young boy then asked about Republican National Party candidate from Alabama Roy Moore who is also now facing allegations of sexual harassment. Then came Trump. As McKinnon reminds Santa during the sketch, the president is more than qualified to be on the naughty list - "Nineteen accusers".

Kenan Thompson plays a mall Santa tasked with fielding holiday gift requests from the kids.

After Thompson tells one girl that "we can all learn a lesson" from what's going on in the news, she responds point-blank: "We sure can".

Next customer, a little girl, was quickly hustled away after telling Santa that she wants 'a Barbie, unless the feminazis are going to take that away from me too!'

"And what about Roy Moore?"

That's when Amy, who chose to nix the nickname "Sugar Plum" in light of the "current climate", told him, "It's not so much a list".

"Our president may have said or done a few naughty things", Santa tells Jessica.

"I know", the girl replied. "I learned that if you admit you did something wrong, you get in trouble, but if you deny it, then you get to keep your job!" "And if you ain't got nothing to apologize for, then why the hell are you resigning?".

McKinnon's elf said, "I know that things seem particularly insane". "I've seen Fox News". Al Franken, who used to work on the show.

"Oh, you mean toy like the one Matt Lauer gave to his coworker?" the girl shoots back.

'But as bad as things might seem, I promise you, Jenny, it will be okay. "Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not for another three years, 42 days and 24 minutes", she says, referencing the time remaining in President Trump's current term. 'But just in case I'm putting all my money in Bitcoin'.
