Tiffany Haddish Pokes Fun at Taylor Swift's Reputation in Their SNL Promos

Tiffany Haddish Pokes Fun at Taylor Swift's Reputation in Their SNL Promos

Saturday's cold open, which lately is nearly always a sketch starring Alec Baldwin as Trump, opted instead to feature Beck Bennett as Vice-President Mike Pence confronting politician Roy Moore (played by Mikey Day) after reports of Moore's alleged sexual harassment and assault to minors. She mentioned the blockbuster summer hit, Girls Trip, while wondering where her cut of the profit was.

The third question quizzed Jost (and anyone who still supports Roy Moore for Alabama Senate) on when it's appropriate to have a relationship with a 14 year-old; he aced it by responding, "never".

Haddish, wearing a flowing all-white Alexander Wang dress that she vows to wear repeatedly until she gets her money's worth, talked about wide range of topics including the recent sexual harassment allegations that have surfaced in Hollywood. Her panic is understandable when you realize she's playing an HR rep trying desperately to stay ahead of the wave (after wave, after wave) of sexual harassment and assault cases crowding the news.

"I'm gonna say 'C, '" Jost replies.

"Who is doing Donald Trump's wigs?"

Her most memorable character probably was Boo Boo Jeffries, a fighter in a Mortal Kombat-type game who's all fierce bluster but no fists.

"Why can't it be both? Just like because how my little cousin has a crack problem, my aunt now has a missing silverware situation".

Cecily Strong also showed up as Claire, an exasperated human resources worker, tasked with interviewing Jost to see if he understands what constitutes acceptable workplace behavior.

In another promo for the show from earlier this week, Haddish walks through the studio with "SNL" cast member Aidy Bryant.

Beck and Kyle - The romance between Kyle Mooney and Leslie Jones continues to create hilarious comedy. In fact, the number of viewers dipped from last weekend's Larry David episode, despite the presence of Taylor Swift.

In adults 18-49, possibly boosted by the appearance of pop star Tyler Swift who performed songs from her new album, SNL posted a 1.9 rating in the markets with local people meters, up a tenth from last week.
