The SNL cast's moms are tired of their kids' Trump jokes

Saturday Night Live gave its normal political cold open a pass this week to celebrate Mother's Day, instead bringing on the cast's moms for sick burns on their children's comedy careers.

The moms took some personal swipes — 15-year cast member Kenan Thompson's mother literally can't remember when he wasn't on SNL but they also wanted to weigh in on the show's jokes about the Trump administration.

Mikey Day's mom kicked it off by comparing his high school production of The Crucible to "the witch hunt against President Trump," and after he rushed her off the stage, Luke Null's mother stepped up to ask why SNL doesn't "ever talk about Crooked Hillary." "Mom, I am so new here," he begs. "Please do not do this to me." Bonnie Kristian
