  • Trivia

    • Ivanka Trump was four months pregnant when this broadcast first aired. As a result, her cameo in the "White House 2018" sketch was awkwardly shot from above the diaphragm to hide her baby bump.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Because of strict FCC "equal time" measures, Donald Trump only appears on-screen for 12 1/2 minutes. (The average for an SNL host since 2014 is closer to 26 minutes.) Even though Trump appeared in the monologue and seven sketches, he only figures prominently in the "White House 2018" sketch.

    • With this episode, Sia becomes the first (and likely only) musical guest in SNL history to appear on the show three times in one calendar year. She was the scheduled musical guest for the Kevin Hart show in Year 40 and also appeared in the 40th anniversary special.
