SNL's Donald Trump Teases 2024 Reboot in Judge Jeanine Cold Open

Judge Schroeder also made an appearance to mistakenly refer to Kyle Rittenhouse as ”my client“

The segment then introduced a pair of liberal commentators, played by Chloe Fineman and Chris Redd, who were both outraged by the verdict – although Redd’s Samuel Fields wasn’t surprised. “All we can hope for at this point is that this will be a call to finally change the system,” Fineman’s character said. To which Redd’s character replied, “and that call will go right to voicemail and the mailbox is full.”

And later in the cold open, Donald Trump appeared courtesy of new cast member James Austin Johnson’s uncanny impression. “I know you have a lot of thoughts on the infrastructure bill, so I’m just gonna let you riff while I sit here and get rock hard,” Pirro said as she threw to Trump, with the cold open then taking on the former president’s meandering speech patterns.

Trump teased a 2024 run for president, which he dubbed a reboot “just like iCarly.” He then pivoted from subject to subject, connecting Joe Biden to Obama to the female Ghostbusters to “Gossip Girl.” After shifting back to Pirro, she threw to Trump again who said, “let’s do a word search this time.” At this point a giant word search appeared on the screen, and as Trump’s strange rambling touched on a variety of subjects (Chris Christie, Dua Lipa and Bob the Builder) they were all circled in the word search.

Johnson, who joined “SNL” after going viral with his Trump impression online, made waves when he debuted as Trump on the NBC series in the Nov. 7 episode. He takes over for Alec Baldwin, who played the former president in the run up to the 2020 election.
