The eight-minute sketch began with an embellishment of Trump and Clinton’s refusal to shake hands. It also satirized the Republican candidate’s habit of hovering behind Clinton whenever it was her turn to speak.
Of course, a recreation of the debate wouldn’t have been complete without an appearance by undecided voter-turned-Internet phenomenon Ken Bone, who was played by none other than Bobby Moynihan. The cold open also alluded to the more recent string of sexual assault allegations made against Trump, with Trump saying that all of his accusers needed to “shut the hell up.”
