Donald Trump got the full-on SNL parody treatment in the 41st season opener, including the cold open featuring Taran Killam, in his debut as the mouthy mogul, and Cecily Strong as latest wife Melania. She blabbered mindlessly about his intelligence and love of women; he indicated his fondness for immigrants by pointing to her. Rare was the sketch in the rest of the show in which Trump didn’t also come up as object of ridicule, amusement or abject fear. Look for the inevitable announcement of his hosting date, coming, no doubt, any minute now.
