'SNL's' Kate McKinnon took aim at Sessions in a 'Forrest Gump' skit


"Saturday Night Live" took aim at Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Kate McKinnon turning the former Alabama senator into Forrest Gump. 

In an extended parody of the 1994 hit film, McKinnon's Sessions, dressed as Gump, sits on a bus bench next to "SNL" co-star Leslie Jones. 

“My name’s Jeff, Jeff Sessions. I’m the attorney general of the whole United States," McKinnon's Sessions said. 

McKinnon's Sessions was naturally holding Gump's iconic box of chocolates. "I always say life is like a box of chocolates," McKinnon as Sessions said while waiting for the bus. "Sure are a lot of brown ones in there."

McKinnon's Sessions also took the opportunity to tell people sitting on the bench what it's like to serve in the government. Sessions as Gump pulled out a picture of his "best good friend" Kellyanne Conway. "She ain't got no legs," McKinnon as Sessions said as she held up a photo of Conway with her feet on a couch in the Oval Office. 

Jones naturally caught the first bus out of there and was replaced by another cast member. 

"I never talked to any Russians ever," McKinnon as Sessions told someone else sitting at the bench. The line was clearly a jab at Sessions, who during his confirmation hearing, failed to disclose that he'd met with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. 

Later Beck Bennett's shirtless Vladimir Putin sat down and tells McKinnon's Sessions, "This meeting never happened." 

"I wasn’t going to remember it anyway,” McKinnon's Sessions replied. 

Minny Jackson from the movie "The Help" also made a special appearance and delivered homemade pie of sorts to Sessions.
