NBC's "Saturday Night Live" parodied the first week of public hearings on the House's impeachment process by presenting it as a soap opera based on Days of Our Lives.
In an apparent shock to observers attending the hearings to President Trump Donald John TrumpGOP cleaved about the strategy of impeachment trial that Bolton had a one-on-one interview with Trump over the help of the governor of Louisiana in Ukraine wins re-election MORE Negotiations with Ukraine were "boring" and lacked "pizzazz". "Saturday Night Live" opened the door with the launch of "Days of Our Impeachment," a show that focused on the "only thing" is democracy.

" Oh yes, "replies Strong's Yovanovitch. "I love the glamor and the limelight, so I spent my career in Ukraine and Somalia."
The interaction gives way to Moffat's ship, which announces that the president has sent a tweet that points to tweets that Trump sent to Yovanovitch during Friday's hearing.
"The president has just sent a tweet," says Moffat's ship, triggering dramatic background music. In response, Heidi Gardner, who plays an audience, gasps for air before fainting.
After Moffat's ship declares that Trump is intimidating a witness, Day's Jordan dismisses the charge and says he would shoot you in the middle of Fifth Avenue if the "President wanted to intimidate you."
Asked by Strong's Yovanovitch if he would charge Trump if that happened, Day's Jordan replies, "I'd have to look at the facts, but no."
Then Hamm's Taylor appears at the hearing, stating that he would enter. "Unlike other people in the Trump administration, I turn up."

Hamm's Taylor and Villaseñors Ocasio-Cortez play a romantic interaction after the fictitious New York lawmaker comes to the hearing.
"Alexandria, I did not expect to see you here," says Hamm Taylor, as the wind blows Villaseñor's hair.
"And I did not expect you to be such a reserved father," answers Villasenors Ocasio-Cortez. "Well, here is a Red New Deal, these are my lips."
The almost eight-minute segment followed a week in which Parliament's impeachment investigation of Trump entered the public phase. The House Intelligence Committee heard public statements from Taylor, Yovanovitch, and George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.
