The cold open of Saturday Night Live mocked Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski from Morning Joe on MSNBC. In between arguing over different political issues, they had a public display of affection – they are engaged in actuality. At one point, they received a call from a White House spokesman named John Miller.
Miller is described as a man who spends every day with Donald Trump and calls himself a White House publicist. As soon as he begins talking, it’s apparent that Trump himself calling in under an alias.
At one point “John Miller” tells Joe and Mika,
I’m just celebrating the fantastic success we had in Congress yesterday with the new healthcare law… the disaster that was Obamacare has finally been repealed.
When John Miller is told that it still has to go through the Senate, he suddenly has to get off the phone. Because Trump really does not know how to Congress.
Watch SNL poke fun at Trump’s ignorance here:
