With this Family Feud sketch coming on the heels of SNL's spot-on debate parody (starring Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump), the season premiere hosted by Margot Robbie was strongest in its political sketches. Although the actual Trump and Clinton families have known each other for years (Chelsea and Ivanka were pretty close friends before 2015), this was a match up for their political families. It's absolutely filled with in-jokes for anyone who has been dutifully suffering through the news:

It's also a very strong round of impressions overall, with Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway (the GOP pollster who has to spin Trump's BS every day), Margot Robbie as Ivanka, Bobby Moynihan as Chris Christie, Beck Bennett as Putin, Darrell Hammond as Bill Clinton, new castmember Melissa Villaseñor as Sarah Silverman, Cecily Strong as Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Larry David returning as Bernie Sanders. Hopefully, Miranda liked his impression, because he's hosting next week.
