This week's SNL Cold Open brought us another James Austin Johnson impression of the former guy bringing his pompous act to East Palestine Ohio, the site of the latest train derailment.

"Don't eat the dirt folks. You should be eating the cold McDonald's I brought you."

When mentioning the pallets of water Traitor Trump brought with him, "I just put my sticker on some Dasani."

(That could have been an opening for DeSantis joke, but they missed it.)

"But your train exploded and who do we blame, who do we blame? We blame Buttigieg."

"He was too busy being a nerd and being gay."

"I'm here paying my respects because your train exploded and now all your birds and fish are all dead. That's gotta not be so great. Wake up in the morning and not hear the beautiful chirping of birds instead your trains exploding and derailing all over the place."

Johnson then brought on Georgia foreman of Fulton County grand jury for a cameo visit.
