-->'''Chris Farley''': Uh...remember when you were in Music/TheBeatles? And, um, you did that album Abbey Road, and at the very end of the song, it would...the song goes "and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make"? You...you remember that?

* The May 13th episode's Trump sketches go for the throat even more than before, outright portraying him as a horrible racist who can say any stupid thing he wants (like ''outright confessing'' to having the Russia investigation in mind when he decided to fire FBI Director James Comey), because the rest of the Republican party are his eager lapdogs ready to mindlessly serve his every beck and call. After the show got some criticism for playing up Trump's buffoonish side at the expense of truly hard-hitting material, seeing the crew unmistakably out for blood is well worth the wait.

** The [[http://fortune.com/2017/02/12/saturday-night-live-ratings-alec-baldwin-donald-trump/ ratings for Alec Baldwin's hosting]] for 2/11/17 was ''higher'' than Trump's controversial hosting back in 11/7/15.
* On the 2/11/17 airing, the show (through Kate [=McKinnon=] as Elizabeth Warren on Weekend Update), the show finally acknowledging that letting Trump host was a bad idea.

* Not quite Trump, exactly, but Creator/MelissaMcCarthy's surprise cameo as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, parodying his extremely combative relations with the press and his bordering on InsaneTrollLogic embracing of "alternative facts" in pursuit of the administration's agenda, was widely embraced as a particularly effective satire of the administration. And once again, it apparently got under Trump's skin to the point where for a time, several commentators [[http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/melissa-mccarthy-sean-spicer-234715 openly wondered about the chances of Spicer keeping his job]]. Spicer himself thought it was funny, although he pointed out that they got the amount of gum (and brand) he chews wrong. Cue a follow up sketch where [=McCarthy=] "cuts down" on the Gum and gets the brand right. Spicer is also reported to have gotten the same exact Super-Soaker model [=McCarthy=] used in the first sketch and keeps it in his office (White House staff have noted Spicer doesn't keep many mementos in his office. The only other thing of personal note in there at the time were family pictures. Needless to say, Trump may not have liked the sketch... but Spicer loved the ribbing.

* In just a few days after the infamous Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad, they put together a great-looking spoof of it with costumes that are a perfect match for the real thing. The show was also quickly able to incorporate some late additions during the preceding week, such as Trump's missile launch at Syria and Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment scandal.

* The actual Trump sending was really pissed at the "President Bannon" meme that didn't seem so far-fetched, since it looked like Bannon was really the one pulling the strings in the Trump administration. [[GloryHound Trump]] was pissed that the memes and ''SNL'' in particular portrayed him this way, and it's speculated that the show was eventually a major impetus in Bannon being fired from the National Security Council and losing his position as ''de facto'' president to Jared Kushner. On the show, Trump sends Steve Bannon back to Hell, courtesy of a bigger and scarier GrimReaper.[[note]]It should be noted the real Bannon is still a key advisor to Trump even if Jared's now the one running the show[[/note]]

* The 40th Anniversary special. Just... all of it. The celebrities, the sketches, the fact that the show was able to go on for forty years, the way that it honors the history of the show and how much effort was into it, it's all awesome.

* In the season 42 premiere's "Celebrity Family Feud: Political Edition", Bernie Sanders (Larry David) is leading Team Hillary Clinton after having conceded the race over the summer and insisting his supporters get behind her. He makes a pretty effective analogy to both his most ardent supporters, independent voters, and undecided voters.
-->'''Bernie''': Hillary is the prune juice of this election: she may not seem that appetizing, but if you don't take her now, you're gonna be clogged with crap for a very long time!
