Dog injured in al-Baghdadi raid holds press conference on SNL

Saturday Night Live (SNL) took aim at the Trump administration with a sketch centering around the U.S. military dog injured during the raid in northern Syria last week that took down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

In the sketch, SNL cast member Kate McKinnon played White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, and hosted a press conference for the dog.

SNL cast member Cecily Strong played a U.S. Special Forces canine interpreter speaking on behalf of the K-9 Command who has been identified as Conan.

Reporters at the press conference peppered the dog with questions, asking “who’s a good boy?” and “are you a good boy?”

“Seriously, with all due respect,” the interpreter said on behalf of Conan, “I am a trained military assassin and not some basic Labradoodle.”

Another reporter asked if the raid was “scary” for him.

“A little, sure,” the interpreter said. “But it could have been worse — the terrorists have guns and explosives, but at least they don’t have vacuum cleaners.”
