The latest episode of Saturday Night Live was a star-studded event including Ben Stiller as Donald Trump’s incompetent lawyer Michael Cohen, Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump, and Martin Short as doctor Harold Bornstein.

The real draw though was Stormy Daniels in the flesh—playing, of course, herself.

The adult actress, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, appears at the end of the skit when Cohen calls her at Trump’s request. Alec Baldwin reprises his role as the president and asks Daniels what he can do to end the scandal “once and for all.”

Daniels gets the last word.

It’s amazing, watch it here:

 

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
