SNL's yearly satirical political sketches have been a mainstay in American culture since the 80s. In the midst of the wild world of politics, they were always around to deliver a good laugh to the American people. And in this controversy filled 2016 presidential election, we all need a good laugh. Here's five of the funniest SNL political sketches surrounding this year's election.
1. Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton Third Debate Cold Open
With quotables such as "bad hombre" and "nasty woman", this 2016 debate crams a year long campaign into just over 10 minutes. And, does it quite perfectly.
2. George W. Bush Cold Open
One of the greatest talents to come out of SNL, Will Ferrell kills it as George Bush
Melania + Beyonce = Incredible

Family Feud skits are always a personal favorite, so political figures make it all the more hilarious.

Two words: Larry David.
