Donald Trump's hot mic scandal gave 'Saturday Night Live' plenty of material to work with


Since last week's vice presidential debate wasn't all that thrilling, Donald Trump's hot mic scandal really gave the folks on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" plenty of material to work with this weekend. 

The show began with a spoof of the vice presidential debate and was quickly interrupted by a CNN breaking news update. 

"Looks like Donald Trump finally got what he wanted -- a working microphone," said "SNL" cast member Cecily Strong, who played CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin. 

That jab referred to both Trump's complaints that his microphone at the first presidential debate wasn't working properly and the newly leaked audio that captures Trump making lewd comments about women in 2005. 

"I wish I was that hurricane tearing through hot Miami p---y," said Alec Baldwin, who will be playing Trump during election season.  "I would just destroy it."

The sketch then quickly pivoted to "SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon, who plays Hillary Clinton.

McKinnon's Clinton is seen dancing and popping champagne at her campaign headquarters. 

From there the fictional Clinton addresses women who are still planning to vote for Trump despite his lewd comments. 

"My babies," she said. "Ya brain broke. I love ya, but bish ya cray." 

The second presidential debate will air  Oct. 9, at 9 p.m. E.T. on CNN.
