No, Rosie O'Donnell wasn't on 'SNL' this time, but Kate McKinnon starred as Jeff Sessions


After Melissa McCarthy made headlines with her impression of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, another all-star female comedian got in on the act.

No, it wasn't Rosie O'Donnell, despite her offer to play Steve Bannon. It was Kate McKinnon, most recently famous for her role on the show as Hillary Clinton during the presidential race.  

She played Trump's recently appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And, yes, McCarthy reprised her role as Spicer.

"There are two kinds of crimes: Regular and black," McKinnon said, referencing racist remarks Sessions made in the past.

Here's how McKinnon looked on the show.

For reference, here's what Sessions actually looks like.

McKinnon played a huge number of important political figures, all in one night.

The show has been enjoying record ratings, and this episode was similarly well-received.

McKinnon also got rave reviews for her "Fatal Attraction"-style Kellyanne Conway.
