The Lead with Jake Tapper Cold Open – SNL

[ APPLAUSE] >>> WELCOME TO THE LEAD. I’M JAKE TAPPER. YOU’RE WATCHING CNN. BE CAREFUL ON THE ELYPTICAL. HERE TO HELP MAKE SENSE OF THE APPOINTMENTS. TRUMP’S SENIOR ADVISOR KELLY ANN CONWAY. >> KELLYANNE TRUMP HAS NOMINATED SCOTT PRUITT TO HEAD THE EPA EVEN THOUGH HE IS A FOSSIL FUEL ADVOCATE THAT DOESN’T BELIEVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE. >> YES, ACTUALLY, HE IS READY TO PROTECT US ALL FROM THE ENVIRONMENT. >> I’M NOT SURE THAT’S HOW IT WORKS. THIS PICK IS NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS PEOPLE SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS. THERE’S ALSO THE DECISION TO NAME THE CEO OF CARL’S JR. AND HARDEE’S ANDY PUZDER EVEN THOUGH HE DOESN’T SUPPORT THE MINIMUM WAGE. IT SEEMS LIKE HE IS PICKING THESE PEOPLE TO UNDERMINE THE AGENCIES THEY ARE GOING TO HEAD. ARE THESE BAD PICKS? >> NO, THEY ARE ALT-GOOD.

>> WASN’T HE SUPPOSED TO DRAIN THE SWAMP. >> HE IS DRAINING THE SWAMP, AS HE SAID HE WOULD, AND THE FROGS AND THE TOADS AND THE NEWTS. THEY’RE NOW HIS CABINET PETS. >> AS You are familiar with, WE HAVE Smashed NEWS. PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP HAS MADE HIS CHOICE FOR THE FEDERAL DEA, AND IT’S A HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE TEACHER FROM IN AM NORMAL NAMED WALTER WRIGHT. >> HELLO, JAKE. >> WALTER IS AMAZING. HE CAME HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY STEVE BANNON. >> OH, YEAH. STEVE IS THE BEST. WE’VE HAD SOME TIMES. >> WHERE DID MR. BANNON FIND YOU? >> UNDER THE COMMENT SECTION AT BREITBART. I’M REALLY SURPRISED HE TRACKED ME DOWN BECAUSE I’VE KIND OF BEEN OFF THE GRID FOR A WHILE. >> AND YOU’RE A HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE TEACHER? >> YEAH. >> DO You are familiar with ANYTHING ABOUT DRUG ENFORCEMENT? >> OH, TRUST ME, I KNOW THE DEA BETTER THAN ANYONE. INSIDE AND OUT. >> MR. WHITE, HOW DID YOU EVEN GET CONSIDERED FOR THIS JOB? DO You are familiar with DONALD TRUMP? >> NO.

NOPE. BUT I’M A BIG FAN. I LIKE HIS STYLE. HE ACTS FIRST AND THEN ASKS QUESTIONS LATER. I ALSO LIKE THAT WALL HE WANTS TO BUILD. Good-for-nothing COMES IN FROM MEXICO, MEANING A LOT LESS COMPETITION FOR THE REST OF US. >> YOU MEAN JOBS? >> SURE. >> WALTER IS ACTUALLY A GENIUS WITH CHEMICALS, AND WE’RE SO LUCKY TO GET HIM. THE TOP COMPANIES IN THE COUNTRY HAD BEEN KNOCKING ON HIS DOOR FOR YEARS, BUT HE NEVER ANSWERED. >> I AM THE ONE WHO KNOCKS. >> AND MR. WHITE, DO YOU FORESEE ANY PROBLEMS WITH CONGRESS CONSIDERING YOUR LIMITED EXPERIENCE? >> WELL, THEY MIGHT GET HUNG UP ON THE FACT THAT I FAKED MY OWN DEATH. I’M ONLY THE THIRD PERSON IN THE TRUMP CABINET TO DO THAT. >> MR. WHITE IS ACTUALLY SUCH A GREAT FIT FOR THIS ADMINISTRATION. HE IS FIRST AND FOREMOST IN SUPPORT OF SMALL BUSINESS. >> OH, ABSOLUTELY. DONALD TRUMP AND I AGREE.

IT’S TIME TO MAKE AMERICA COOK AGAIN. WE WANT TO FILL THIS NATION WITH RED, WHITE, AND A WHOLE LOT OF BLUE. LET ME TELL YOU ONE MORE THING, JAKE. LIVE FROM NEW YORK, IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT!.
