Comedian Louis C.K. hosted this weekend’s Saturday Night Live with musical guest The Chainsmokers. Watch the highlights!
The episode began with Alec Baldwin pulling double duty as both Donald Trump and Bill O’Reilly as they discuss the latter’s recent string of sexual assault charges:
In “Trump’s People,” the President meets with supporters in Kentucky:
Louis C.K.’s opening monologue featured great new stand-up from the comedian. He just released a stand-up special on Netflix titled 2017 (I watched it the other day and it’s amazing):
In “Thank You, Scott,” a new SNL Digital Short, Louis C.K.’s character is sarcastically applauded for writing political posts on Facebook. We can all learn from this one — maybe we need to do more than write “BLACK LIVES MATTER” and “RESIST” on our profiles.
In this next sketch, Louis C.K. and Kate McKinnon give visitors a tour of their home in 1913. Hilariously, the actors have trouble staying in character.

Finally, here are The Chainsmoker’s pair of performances last night:
“Break Up Every Night”:
Next week’s SNL will star Jimmy Fallon and Harry Styles.
