Kristen Stewart shows she’s not too cool for SNL with a little help from Melissa McCarthy
Over the past few years, Kristen Stewart has gone from just being That Girl From The Twilight Movies to starring in a few well-acclaimed works by Olivier Assayas, as well as becoming the face of Chanel and Balenciaga. All of this intro-in is mostly me padding for time since I’m not actually sure what she’s hosting SNL to promote. There is the fact that the president is obsessed with her relationship with Robert Pattinson – maybe it’s a middle finger if he’s watching? I’d be all for that if it meant episodes like the one we got tonight.

Kate McKinnon’s Angela Merkel continues to be my favorite of her impersonations.
That is…an outfit. And also, this is an excellent callback to the weird obsession Donald Trump has with Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart

Leslie as Samuel L. Jackson is inspired, and Kate’s Justin Bieber is always welcome.
