“Saturday Night Live” addressed the child molestation allegations against Alabama’s GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in its opening skit this weekend.
The former Alabama chief justice was accused this week of initiating a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s.
The skit opens with Vice President Pence offering the embattled candidate some advice, saying “we can’t lose your seat this December.”
“It’s hard to convince people you’re not into young girls when you dress like Woody from Toy Story,” Pence tells Moore during the sketch.
“Alright, if everyone thinks I did it, I’ll marry her,” Moore tells Pence.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon, urges Moore to drop out of the race, saying, “Now Roy, you’ve been doing some controversial stuff,” before listing several of his recent controversies.
“You wave a gun around on stage, tell folks Muslims shouldn’t be allowed in Congress and that 9/11 was God’s punishment for sodomy,” Session says. “I love it. You check a lot of boxes for me, Roy, but it was really bad. I’m usually the creepiest one in the room, but I look at you, and I’m like ‘Oh my God.’ They say you even admitted to being with a couple of 16-year-olds?…I’m Alabama but, you sir, are too Alabama. Get out, get on, leave me to my gerrymandering.”
