In its latest cold open, "Saturday Night Live" took on the recent string of high-profile sexual-misconduct scandals, featuring a parade of children - each seemingly more precocious and world-weary than the last - visiting a mall Santa, played by Kenan Thompson.
Next customer, a little girl, was quickly hustled away after telling Santa that she wants 'a Barbie, unless the feminazis are going to take that away from me too!'

"Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, maybe not for another three years, 42 days and 24 minutes", she says, referencing the remainder of Trump's term as president. "But just in case, I'm putting all my money in bitcoin".
