The co-hosts of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, became fodder for late night political satire on the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live" this weekend.

Alec Baldwin's President Trump called into the show under an alias to boast about his recent "win" in passing a repeal of Obamacare through the U.S. House of Representatives. Longtime "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough, played by Alex Moffat, and Mika Brzezinski, played by Kate McKinnon (who confirmed their engagement last Thursday), explained to the president the long process still ahead for his healthcare bill.

The sketch perfectly skewered Trump's awkward relationship with "Morning Joe," a show that has both been friendly and very critical to Trump, and Trump's awkward boasting after repealing Obamacare.

In a later sketch, SNL asked the question on everyone's mind, "Where in the world is Kellyanne Conway?" The one-time mainstay of cable news seems to have vanished from television after a series of gaffes and reports of diminishing influence in the Trump White House.

The sketch is sure to bring back memories for those who grew up in the 1990s, riffing on the geography-lesson game and television show for kids, "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?"
