The Best SNL Sketches Of The Trump Administration

Arguably one of the best things about Donald Trump's presidency is the amazing material SNL writers get to work with every week. They have managed to cast amazing actors to take on the roles we hear about on the news every day, and write sketches that can sometimes hit too close to home. So, to celebrate the past couple years of amazing SNL moments, here are some of my favorite SNL sketches of this administration (in no particular order.)

1. Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer

The first time I saw this sketch, I laughed untill I couldn't breathe. Everything about Melissa McCarthy's performance was on point and the writing was absolutely brilliant.

2. Morning Joe

As someone who watches cable news all the dang time, this sketch was particularly hilarious to me. Also, the impersonations are scary-accurate.

3. Kanye West in the Oval Office

After the bizarre press conference between Kanye West and President Trump in the Oval Office, I knew SNL would be fervently taking notes for their upcoming episode. Sure enough, they did not disappoint.

4. Steve Bannon in the Oval Office

The way SNL decided to play Steve Bannon during this scene was hilarious, not to mention Alec Baldwin's signature Trump impersonation.

5. Kavanaugh Hearing Cold Open

One of the amazing casting choices for SNL was casting Matt Damon as Brett Kavanaugh. This cold open was hilarious and alarmingly similar to the real thing.

6. Robert Mueller and Michael Cohen

For any fans of the "Meet the Parents" movie, this sketch is definitely for you!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
