'Saturday Night Live' takes aim at hot mic story

Saturday Night Live mercilessly mocked Donald Trump's sexually aggressive comments caught by a hot mic in a 2005 tape and poked fun at the Republican nominee's half-hearted apology following the release of the video Friday.

The segment opens with a depiction of last week's vice presidential debate between Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.  

In the segment, cast member Beck Bennett's Pence denies that Trump has made derogatory comments about women.

"Donald Trump loves women. He respects women. He's never said a single bad thing about women and I dare you to show me a single shred of evidence that proves otherwise," Bennet's Pence says just before the sketch cuts away to a CNN interview with Trump about his lewd comments.

"Are you not entertained?" Alec Baldwin as Trump asks to open the interview in a reference to Trump's defense of some of his other comments about women being done in the name of entertainment.

Cecily Strong plays CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin you fumbles for the words to describe the comments captured in the tape. "Basically you said you wanted to..."

"Grab them by the p---y," Baldwin says directly into his microphone.

"Why would you say these horrible things in the first place?" Strong asks Baldwin.

"C'mon Brooke, I was trying to look cool. I mean what normal, red-blooded American doesn't want to impress THE Billy Bush?" Baldwin's Trump asks.

"Trump" is then caught with a hot mic.

"I wish that I was that hurricane, tearing through all of that hot Miami p---y," he says about Hurricane Matthew while thinking he is off camera. "I would just destroy it."

The sketch then cut to Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters, where SNL's Kate McKinnon, playing Clinton, is seen dancing and drinking with staff. She calls Trump's comments "disturbing" and says they made her "horribly depressed" while trying to suppress her obvious joy.

The segment closes with Baldwin's Trump getting caught yet again with a hot mic and, of course, making more lewd comments, this time about Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
