'Saturday Night Live' opened their show with a parody of the 1940s classic Christmas movie 'It's a Wonderful Life' that imagined a world where President Trump lost the 2016 election.

In 'It's a Wonderful Trump' Hillary Clinton, Trump's democratic opponent, wins the election by snagging Wisconsin.

"In this reality all she had to do to win was visit Wisconsin -- once," Keenan Thompson joked in the skit.

Clinton did not campaign in Wisconsin during the 2016 general election.

The skit goes on to have Mike Pence as a dj rather than a vice-president, Clinton's emails as nothing more than Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons and Robert Mueller, played by Robert De Niro, gifting Trump with a photo of his grandson.
