Saturday Night Live regular Kate McKinnon appeared on the first live episode of the show broadcast in three weeks. Playing the role of Attorney General Jeff Sessions as the Forrest Gump character, McKinnon said "Hello. My name's Jeff. Jeff Sessions. Would you like a chocolate?" 
 
"Being in the government is so fun," McKinnon said. "You meet so many nice people. Like this, this is my best good friend Kellyanne. She ain't got no legs." McKinnon, in character as Jeff Sessions, then showed a now famous photo of Kellyanne Conway kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office while President Trump was meeting a group of presidents of historically black colleges and universities.
 
Sessions then told another stranger on the bench, "Democrats want me to resign. I just gotta prove to everybody that I don't have any ties to the Russians whatsoever." In real life, Attorney General Sessions recused himself this week from investigating claims of Russian interference in the 2016 general election. 
 
In the skit, when a bus comes by, a shirtless Beck Bennett is seen in a reprise of his role as Vladimir Putin."This meeting never happened," Bennett says.
 
"I wasn't going to remember it anyway," McKinnon as Sessions says, as they bump fists.
