Thompson asked one boy if he wants a new toy. McKinnon's character chimed in, adding, "19 accusers". After fumbling through a response, Santa chalks it up to the boy as Franken being on Santa's naughty list this year.

As Santa begins to get flustered by the questions, the next few kids to visit bring questions about the recently-passed tax reform bill, opioids, and the potential for an American embassy to be built in Jerusalem following U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "I never thought I'd say this, but I think our public schools are too good!" "I know that things seem particularly insane. And we seem to have lost all perspective on what's naughty or nice". "But just in case, I'm putting all my money in bitcoin".
