Trump returns to SNL to serenade Putin and man the phones for Fox News charity drive in support of Russian invasion of Ukraine as liberal show takes another pot shot at network and the ex-president’s family
- James Austin Johnson’s Donald Trump manned phones for a charity drive for Russian ‘sugar babies’ on the March 5 SNL broadcast
- The former president sang a rendition of ‘My Funny Valentine’ to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and said ‘I love you, Vlad’
- Kate McKinnon, playing Laura Ingraham, and Beck Bennett playing Tucker Carlson hosted a ‘Fox News Russian Invasion Special’
Donald Trump, portrayed by James Austin Johnson, manned the phones for a ‘FOX News Ukrainian Invasion Special’ charity drive in support of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on tonight’s Saturday Night Live, serenading the dictator and saying ‘I love you, Vlad.’
Laura Ingraham, played by Kate McKinnon, and Tucker Carlson, played by Beck Bennett, hosted the charity drive for the ‘babies’ – ‘the sugar babies of Russian oligarchs.’
‘Who will pour vodka in their mouths? So many horny mouths to feed,’ McKinnon said. ‘So many horny mouths to feed.’
The two television personalities, they said, ‘got in trouble’ for the ‘nice things we said about Russia and the mean things we said about Ukraine,’ with McKinnon saying that Ingraham ‘called the president of Ukraine pathetic [when] he stayed and fought with his people in a war, and I called him pathetic from a news desk in Washington.’
‘We did sound really awful in hindsight and foresight,’ McKinnon’s Ingraham said.

Bennett as Carlson, meanwhile, said that he ‘kept saying we should be more worried about our own border getting invaded by Mexico.’
‘In my defense, I’m racist and I thought that was true,’ Bennett’s character said.
‘But tonight, we’re going to make it up to you,’ McKinnon’s Ingraham said. ‘We’re going to raise money for the real victims of this invasion – the oligarchs.’
Those who donated had the option could ‘either send money or take out a reverse mortgage.’
Thus far, $8.3 million roubles – ‘which comes out to almost twelve dollars’ – had been raised.
Trump, meanwhile, manned the phones for the charity drive – those who donated would get a My Pillow, a six month subscription to Life Lock and ten American Flag catheters.
‘Former and current president Donald Trump is manning the phones himself,’ McKinnon’s Ingraham said.
Trump’s son Don Jr., played by Mikey Day, and his wife-to-be Kimberly Guilfoyle, played by Cecily Strong – called ‘the real Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’ – were brought on stage, as was Steven Seagal, played by Bowen Yang.
