America may not be great again, but SNL is getting there.

This past weekend’s Saturday Night Live opened with Kate McKinnon playing Donald Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper. When Tapper — played by Beck Bennett — asks Conway about Trump’s pick to lead the EPA, climate denier Scott Pruitt, she replies:

“Well, yes, actually Scott Pruitt is excited about the job and is ready to protect us all from the environment.”

That may begin to explain Trump’s misconception of the department’s name. Conway then goes into Trump’s next cabinet pick: Walter White for head of the DEA.

It’s good to laugh through the tears.
