Donald Trump really isn’t going to like this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”

In its cold open sketch, the show tore into the president-elect’s reported friendly relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his misspelled tweets and his controversial cabinet picks.

Actor John Goodman even made an appearance by playing Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson.

The skit began with Alec Baldwin as Trump explaining to Kate McKinnon as his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway just why he went on his “thank you” tour and his reasons behind picking former Texas governor Rick Perry as energy secretary.

“Wasn’t that a great choice? I saw him on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’” said Baldwin as Trump. “This guy has so much energy, Unpresidented,” he added, in reference to a misspelled tweet Trump posted Saturday.

SNL then poked fun at the reportedly tough time Trump is having finding music stars to perform at his inauguration, before Beck Bennett as a shirtless Putin comes out of the fireplace to give Trump a special Christmas “Elf on the Shelf” gift, in reference to a CIA report that Russia interfered with the presidential election.

When Baldwin as Trump says he feels bad at not getting him anything, Bennett as Putin replies: “Please Mr. Trump, you are the gift.”

Goodman as Tillerson, who is friendly with Putin in real life, then arrives on the scene — and the reunited duo proceed to do a special dance before discussing business, while all Trump can do is talk about his meeting with Kanye West.

Check it out in the clip above.
