Saturday Night Live covered a lot of ground in its most recent episode, from President Trump and Paul Manafort naked together in the shower to Larry David making ill-received concentration camp jokes. Alec Baldwin kicked off the show as Trump talking to Manafort in the wake of his disastrous week, heading to the shower as a way to ensure that Manafort isn't wearing a wire, notes Mashable. Joining them are Kate McKinnon as Jeff Sessions ("I’m wearing a bathing costume that I got from my favorite place—the 1890s," she drawls. "Plus I thought we should get all used to wearing stripes.") and Beck Bennett as VP Mike Pence. Meanwhile, at the SNL version of the White House, Aidy Bryant brought back her impersonation of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Slate says "singlehandedly saved the day."

But guest-host David is taking some heat over his monologue, notes People, in which he cracked that “I’ve always been obsessed with women, and I’ve often wondered: If I’d grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I still be checking out women in the camp?" he wondered before musing about flirting. "The problem is, there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp." (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
