Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie made her Saturday Night Live debut as host of the Season 42 premiere on Oct. 1, where she poked fun at herself, the presidential debate’s recent fact-checking conversation and Donald Trump‘s daughter, Ivanka. The Harley Quinn actress even fact-checked her own monologue.
The actress was in two sketches where the central joke was simply “Wow, Margot Robbie is really hot.”
In the first live sketch, Robbie played a very attractive woman married to a Croc-wearing, unassertive man, and no one can understand why she’s with him. The second sketch features Robbie playing a sexy librarian.
The show opened Saturday with a skit parodying the first presidential debate, with Alec Baldwin impersonating Donald Trump‘s orange tan. The fake Trump verbally sparred with Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton.
The Celebrity Family Feud sketch was the Trump camp vs. the Clinton camp, with family members and supporters of the candidates playing against each other. (You can watch the full skit in the video, above.)
The skit featured Robbie wearing a thick blonde wig for the role of Ivanka Trump, with her teammates Vladimir Putin (Beck Bennett), Kellyanne Conway (McKinnon) and Chris Christie (Bobby Moynihan) against Team Clinton, with Bill Clinton (Darrell Hammond), Sarah Silverman (Melissa Villaseñor) Lin-Manuel Miranda (Cecily Strong) and Bernie Sanders (Larry David).
Robbie’s Ivanka needed some help from her brothers, who suddenly appeared from behind the podium — in reference to the Trump campaign ad that appeared on Twitter a month ago — to help answer Steve Harvey’s (Kenan Thompson) questions, before he called them “Children of the Corn.”
“This is fun. I love fun. Every day I schedule 20 minutes of fun,” Robbie said, mocking the Republican presidential nominee’s oldest daughter.
Later, she somehow found her way over to the Clinton side so she could be closer to the former president. “We’re just getting acquainted,” Bill Clinton said, creepily.
David also found an opportunity to give Hillary Clinton a Sanders-style endorsement.
“Look, Senator Clinton is the prune juice of this election,” he said, “She might not seem that appetizing, but if you don’t take her now, you’re gonna be clogged with crap for a very long time.”
SNL has made changes coming into this season, adding new cast members after the departures of Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah. This season’s additions include Alex Moffat, Villaseñor and writer-turned-performer Mikey Day, and two new head writers: Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider.
