Saturday Night Live's Cecily Strong just wants a nice girls' night out, but she can't seem to escape a string of creepy guys who decided faux-feminism is their new pick-up line.

When Strong invites him to sit, he commiserates that the whole "place is filled with skeezy guys" who remind him of President Trump.
