SNL's Santa has Al Franken on the naughty list and Roy Moore on a registry

Santa skit on SNL

Saturday Night Live's mall Santa Claus (Kenan Thompson) and his elf sidekick (Kate McKinnon) face some tough questions in the cold open from children who are more interested in benefiting from Santa's ethical omniscience than from his gift-giving capacities.

After a couple present requests, a kid named Tyler cuts right to the point: "What did Al Franken do?" "Well, Tyler," Santa answers after a failed attempt to shove this question over to the elf, "I guess you could say that Al Franken is on Santa's naughty list this year." "And what about Roy Moore? Which list is he on?" Tyler responds. "It's not really a list," McKinnon's elf interjects. "It's more of a registry."
