SNL: Walter White Makes Surprising Return As He’s Named DEA Chief In Trump’s Cabinet
It’s been over three years since we’ve seen Walter White in the finale of Breaking Bad, but everybody’s favorite drug kingpin made a triumphant return as he was named as the DEA Chief in President-elect Donald Trump’s Cabinet.
The exciting news was made during the cold open of Saturday Night Live where Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon) introduced Trump’s latest selection to CNN’s Jake Tapper (Beck Bennett).
Despite being a high school chemistry teacher from New Mexico with no political experience, White boasts that he knows the Drug Enforcement Agency “better than anyone, inside and out.”
Bryan Cranston said it’s time to “to make America cook again.”
White is also excited over the prospect of Trump’s proposed wall on the Mexican border because “nothing comes in from Mexico, meaning a lot less competition for the rest of us.”
“It’s time to fill this nation with red, white and a whole lot of blue,” the meth drug lord enthusiastically declared.
White noted that his only flaw is that Congress “might get hung up on the fact that I faked my own death.” He added, “I’m only the third person in the Trump Cabinet to do that.”
This skit is based on the past week where Trump’s latest cabinet picks were scrutinized by many. The President-elect tapped Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who has advocated for fossil fuels in the past and is a climate change skeptic, to run the Environmental Protection Agency. Trump also picked Carl’s Jr. CEO Andrew Puzder, who has called for rational increases in the minimum wage, as his Labor Secretary.
