- “Saturday Night Live” opened Saturday with a sketch lampooning the recent sexual misconduct allegations facing Alabama senator candidate Roy Moore
- In the sketch, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon, tells Moore that he is “too Alabama” for him
‘Saturday Night Live’ took on the recent sexual misconduct allegations facing Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for Alabama senator, in a sketch Saturday.
The skit, which opened the program, begins with cast member Beck Bennett, as Vice President Mike Pence, telling Mikey Day’s Moore that he needs to drop out of the Senate race. Bennett makes a joke that he is unsure the recent allegations will be enough to sway Alabama voters to not vote for Moore.
Allegations surfaced Thursday after The Washington Post published a bombshell report alleging that Moore pursued sexual encounters with teenage girls, including one 14-year-old, nearly 40 years ago.
Moore asks Bennet’s Pence to call “the Boss,” to which Pence replies that he won’t call Vladimir Putin.
After Bennet leaves the sketch, McKinnon as Attorney General Jeff Sessions enters to tell Moore that he is “used to being the creepiest one in the room,” but that Moore outdoes him. He then tells him that he is “too Alabama” for him.
The sketch also made a reference to the recent sexual misconduct allegations facing comedian Louis C.K., who admitted that the “stories are true” in a recent statement.
