'SNL' imagined what life will be like forJustice Ruth Bader Ginsburg under Trump


After an emotional cold open performance on "Saturday Night Live," Kate McKinnon changed gears and took on the task of playing 83-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

During her portrayal of Ginsburg, she told "Weekend Update" host Colin Jost that she was going to stay healthy. 

McKinnon's Ginsburg explained that she had planned to retire to the Dominican Republic, but plans had changed because Donald Trump was elected. 

"Woo-woo-woo! I’m the queen of the house, baby! I’m never going to step down now. You can’t get rid of me," McKinnon's Ginsburg said.

From there she downed a giant bag of Emergen-C and the ridiculousness ensued. 

“The bench is now my porch. I’m going to sit on it all day and scream, ‘No! Get out of my yard,’” McKinnon's Ginsburg later said. “I’m eating an apple a day to keep Ben Carson away.”

She then threw in a Harry Potter reference, saying she's hidden horcruxes  all around the D.C.-metro area. 

The cast of "Saturday Night Live" clearly wants Ginsburg to stay alive and well during Trump's presidency, and based on what the real Supreme Court justice was doing Saturday night, she's doing pretty well. 

Ginsburg joined the cast of "The Daughter of the Regiment" at the Washington National Opera, playing the Duchess of Krakenthorp. 

Ginsburg is a well-known opera fan and this was her first time taking the stage.
