Walter White is alive, well, and mocking Donald Trump

Posted December 13, 2016

Out comes Cranston, whose iconic Walter White character on the TV series "Breaking Bad" was a drug kingpin who manufactured meth.

On the contrary, we saw a clever cold open that centered on Donald Trump picking Walter White of Breaking Bad fame to head up the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Seem like a conflict?

Understandably, Walter is also a fan of the idea of a wall separating Mexico from the U.S., though not for the same reason as a lot of Trump's other supporters.

Even if it was for a brief moment, it was definitely a treat to see Bryan back in the famous role once again.

Recently, Trump he chose Scott Pruitt, a climate change denier and fossil fuel advocate, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.

Jake Tapper (Beck Bennett) asked, "You mean jobs?" "It's time to make America cook again".

"He came highly recommended by Steve Bannon", Conway said.

At one point, Tapper/Bennett grills Kellyanne/McKinnon about #Donald Trump's controversial cabinet choices, noting that it's "almost like Trump" appoints certain "bad" people "specifically to undermine" the various agencies they're supposed to run.

Ch-ch-check out Cranston and Kate McKinnon, playing pollster and advisor Kellyanne Conway, talking around THAT one (above)!

Unlike in previous weeks, Trump didn't tweet his criticism of the show. "They are alt-good".

The show went a bit further and made fun of the Pizzagate scandal later on during the Weekend Update sketch, addressing Donald Trump directly since the cast knew he was watching the show. Baldwin didn't appear. And Trump didn't criticise the show.
