James Austin Johnson Brings His Trump To SNL Cold Open

Perhaps it was only a matter of time before James Austin Johnson’s Trump got some airtime Saturday Night Live; the impression, which went viral last year, is what the comedian is most famous for online. Still, it was no less delightful to watch Johnson’s eerily accurate Trump make his debut last night. The cold opening saw Cecily Strong’s ever-welcome Jeanine Pirro bring out a variety of guests, including Pete Davidson as a sickly Aaron Rodgers and Alex Moffat as Glenn Youngkin, elected governor of Virginia, but it was Johnson-as-Trump who ran the show. stable. “It’s great to be here, Judge Judy,” Trump tells Jeanine, “and it’s great to be honest to win again.” Far be it from us to wish for more Trump content SNL, but we wouldn’t mind seeing Johnson’s Trump come back every now and then this season. Watch the full cold opening above.
