Before the big showdown, Baldwin's Trump boasts to VP Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) about dropping the "mother of all bombs" on ISIS, "so big and fat it nearly looks like me in my golf clothes".
Baldwin's Trump then said the victor would be able to continue to advise him and would receive $100,000 courtesy of L'Oreal cosmetics, while the other would "have to join Kellyanne Conway in the basement".
Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, ended up picking Kushner and dumping Bannon, portrayed as the Grim Reaper.
He stands before the two, reality show host-style, holding what appears to be a photo in his hands. "Steve, you may be smart, but I once walked in on you eating a live pig in the Roosevelt Room", Baldwin says as Trump while picking between the two.
Spoiler: It's the more photogenic adviser, Kushner, who gets to stay on, while Bannon gets dragged "back to hell" on the president's orders.
"Jared, you're such an inspiration", Trump says.
The New York Times reported earlier this month that Kushner, who is President Trump's son-in-law, failed to report on his security clearance application that he had meetings with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, and Sergey Gorkov, a prominent Russian banker. "If you do not see your photo, you must immediately leave the Oval Office... and join Kellyanne Conway in the basement".
Baldwin-as-Trump summons both men to the Oval Office, Bannon entering to his trademark doom tuba theme music and outfitted in full Grim Reaper regalia.
"Yes, you all got your wish this week, didn't you, huh? I'd like you to, uh, just fix everything, okay?" Luckily for Ivanka's hubby, he takes much more handsome photos than the Grim Reaper himself, who's immediately sent back to hell-or to the basement to join Kellyanne Conway.
"Spicey finally made a mistake", he said. I know they're not called the Holocaust centers.
The real Spicer has made numerous false claims, starting from his first press conference.
Saturday night's episode of "SNL" marked the first time in the show's 42-year history that it is airing live in all time zones.
