What happens when you combine President Trump with Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol? Ghosts from scandals past.

This is just what Saturday Night Live imagined during Saturday’s episode, which featured a return of Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump.

He was first visited by the president’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pled guilty Friday to lying to the FBI about his communication with Russia.

Flynn (Mikey Day), who was shackled and covered in chains, introduced himself as “the ghost of witness flipped.”

“Mr. President, I came to warn you, it’s time to come clean for the good of the country,” he explained. “There’s a lot of people from your past that could come back to haunt you. Tonight, you will be visited by three of them.”

After being visited by Billy Bush (Alex Moffat) and Vladimir Putin (Beck Bennett), the president was visited by Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton, who came out hidden under a black cloak before revealing herself to a large cheer from the audience.

“You, Donald, have given me the greatest Christmas gift of all – sexual gratification in the form of your slow demise,” she said. “You have no idea how long I’ve wanted to say this – lock him up!”
