Watch: SNL Depicts Jeff Sessions as Forrest Gump in Cold Open

During this week’s “Saturday Night Live” cold open, Kate McKinnon played the role of Attorney General Jeff Sessions as Forrest Gump in a parody of the 1994 movie.

In the skit, McKinnon told one character, “Life is like a box of chocolates, sure are a lot of brown ones in there.”

At one point, “Forrest” discussed Russia and said, “I never talk to any Russians ever, and that’s all I got to say about that.”

Later, this week’s host, Octavia Spencer, brought back her role from “The Help.”

Spencer handed McKinnon’s Gump the same type of pie her Minny Jackson role gave an old white lady in the movie.
