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."
