Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Mike Pence, Jeff Sessions, Paul Manafort, Bernie Sanders, and Sarah Sanders all made appearances — or rather their doppelgangers did — on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend.

And news from the past week — including disgraced movie studio head Harvey Weinstein's allegations of sexual misconduct and the charges against Manafort — provided fodder for the show.

Alec Baldwin and Larry David returned to the show to reprise their roles as the president and former Democratic presidential candidate Sanders, respectively, while "SNL" cast members filled the other roles: Kate McKinnon as Attorney General Sessions, Beck Bennett as Vice President Pence, Cecily Strong as the first lady, Alex Moffat as former Trump campaign manager Manafort, and Aidy Bryant as White House press secretary Sanders.

The show's cold open kicked off with Baldwin's Trump meeting Moffat's Manafort at his apartment, where the pair eventually take a shower together so the president can make sure that his former campaign staffer is not wearing a wire. The shirtless pair are then joined in the shower by Bennett's Pence and McKinnon's Session — both of whom proceed to scrub the backs of Baldwin and Bennett.

"What an idiot that Harvey Weinstein is. He could have gotten away with all of it, if only he was elected president," Baldwin's Trump said while in the shower with Moffat's Manafort.

Also in the cold open, Strong's Melania Trump goes to Hawaii — where the first couple yesterday — bringing along an inflatable Trump look-a-like, instead of her husband.

The show's "Weekend Update" included appearances by the president's sons Eric and Donald Jr., played by cast members Moffat and Mikey Day.

"We would like to make it very clear that our father did nothing wrong," Day's Donald Jr. says. "Some people who barely worked for him, did. But Dad knew nothing about it. And the same goes for Eric and myself."
