Netflix surprise-dropped its new series The OA on Friday, days ahead of its scheduled release.

People have been applauding the show for casting a young trans actor named Ian Alexander to play a trans character.

This series is differently a weird one, which seems to be part of its appeal.

However, some people are just plain confused by the mysterious tone.

This week’s Saturday Night Live featured the return of Alex Baldwin as Trump and a shirtless Beck Bennett as Putin.

Oh, boy. Things are rough out there.

Kate McKinnon kept things political as Hillary Clinton, in a Love Actually-themed sketch begging the Electoral College not to vote for Trump.


And also…

Can we just elect Kate into office?
