They came back as Anthony Scaramucci and Rex Tillerson, respectively.

In a spoof of Anderson Cooper 360, Saturday Night Live’s cold open on Saturday addressed the firing of former F.B.I. Deputy Director Andrew G. McCabe and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as well as other recent events in the Trump White House. Kate McKinnon reprised her impression of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to talk about the McCabe firing. “Look at me! I’ve still got a job,” McKinnon’s Sessions declared.

It was a star-studded cold open, with John Goodman reprising his impression of Tillerson. “It just wasn’t a good fit. Look, these things happen,” Goodman’s Tillerson said.

The night’s host, Bill Hader, surprised by appearing as Anthony Scaramucci, who the former cast member has played before on the show. He appeared alongside his Documentary Now! co-creator and fellow former SNL cast member Fred Armisen, who played Michael Wolff, the writer of Fire And Fury.

Alex Moffat, playing Anderson Cooper, asked if Trump’s White House was as bad as critics say, and Armisen’s Wolff said, “Trump would line up his staff and use a laser pointer and circle their love handles every day” before promising a sequel to Fire and Fury, with a new tell-all source, who turned out to be Scaramucci.

Hader as Scaramucci said that Jared Kushner would be the next White House player to get booted out. “Jared Kushner’s toast, baby,” he said, repeatedly forgetting that he was on live TV.
