The latest episode of Saturday Night Live was a star-studded event including Ben Stiller as Donald Trump’s incompetent lawyer Michael Cohen, Scarlett Johansson as Ivanka Trump, and Martin Short as doctor Harold Bornstein.

The real draw though was Stormy Daniels in the flesh—playing, of course, herself.

The adult actress, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, appears at the end of the skit when Cohen calls her at Trump’s request. Alec Baldwin reprises his role as the president and asks Daniels what he can do to end the scandal “once and for all.”

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
