Putin comes down the chimney

“We in Russia, we are so happy that you’re U.S. president. We think you are the best candidate, the smartest candidate — the Manchurian candidate," said SNL cast member Beck Bennett, as the Russian leader.  Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson, played by John Goodman then walked through the door.
