(Newser) – If you thought Saturday Night Live would politely ignore President Trump's impeachment inquiry in the premiere of its 45th season, well ... you'd be out of your ever-loving mind, sparky.

Or how we tried to cover up those side dealings. Or how we tried to cover up the cover up." Trump romps through several other cast members and one unexpected cameo on his way to opening the show.

Woody Harrelson was guest host and Billie Eilish was musical guest. (Read more Saturday Night Live stories.)
