In Saturday's cold open, CNN's Jake Tapper (played by Beck Bennett) sat down with Trump's top aide, Kellyanne Conway (played by Kate McKinnon) to discuss the 70-year-old business mogul's controversial picks for the head of the EPA and the department of labor.
Recently, Trump chose Scott Pruitt, a climate change denier and fossil fuel advocate, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. Trump later tapped Carl's Jr. CEO Andy Puzder to head the Department of Labor, despite Pudzer's outspoken opposition to the minimum wage and government workplace regulation.
But according to Tapper, Trump's most surprising pick thus far was for the head of the Drug Enforcement Agency: None other than everyone's favorite meth dealer, Walter White
To the surprised delight of the SNL audience, Cranston -- donning his iconic scruffy beard, black porkpie hat and khaki jacket -- reprised his Emmy-winning Breaking Bad role, describing himself as an elementary school teacher.
White explained that while he might not have ever met Trump before and has no real political experience, he is intimately familiar with the DEA "inside and out."
He also said he's also got a lot of respect for Trump and shares a lot of his same views, such as the need for a wall across the southern border.
"Nothing comes in from Mexico, meaning less competition for the rest of us," White explained.
"You mean jobs?" Tapper asked.
"Sure…" White said coyly.
In terms of congress balking at White's nomination to the position given his limited experience, the wildly popular drug lord admitted, "They might get hung up on the fact that I faked my death."
"I'm only the third person in the Trump cabinet to do that," he added.
