“It’s a new year and we have a new president so some things should work, but do they?,” McKinnon says.
“Our first topic is government and already I have my doubts.”

Greene, portrayed by Cecily Strong, sits down next to McKinnon and immediately offers her a gun.

“She’s this lady I work with,” she added. “Oh, and this is a new one that just came out… I think that the California wildfires were caused by Jewish space lasers.”
