(Skit opens on the stage of the third Clinton-Trump presidential debate, in the middle of the debate)
TRUMP: Look, Putin...from everything I see, has no respect for this person.
CLINTON: Well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president of the United States.
TRUMP: No puppet. No puppet.
CLINTON: And it's pretty clear...
TRUMP: You're the puppet!
CLINTON: Trump is unfit, and he proves it every time he talks.
TRUMP: No, you are the one that's unfit.
CLINTON: (hesitantly) Donald is a tall, orange-faced man-gasbag who cheats his workers and assaults his wife?
TRUMP: No, you are the tall, orange-faced man-gasbag who cheats his workers and assaults his wife!
CLINTON: (to audience) Well, the next five minutes are going to be interesting.
It's interesting that other than mugging for the camera, a SNL skit could mostly use the actual debate dialog, like the vast majority of what's written above.
More from Kevin Drum, who called out the debate excerpts.
In other news, I did my civic duty last weekend in Reno, going door-to-door for the Democrats. Keeping the Nevada Senate seat is crucial too. People were pretty friendly for the most part, so I recommend it as a good weekend activity.
