'SNL' Shows You the Absolute Worst Way to Flirt

"This place is filled with skeezy guys."

The universal refrain has taken on new meaning, one Cecily Strong encountered on this week's Saturday Night Live. In the "Girl at a Bar" short above, the actress endures Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, Mikey Day, and Alex Moffat as they try to turn their 2017 political allegiance into sexual favors. When Strong declines, the dudes launch into their best impressions of fake feminist sociopaths getting curved on Tinder.

"Guys like that are why we need a woman in the White House -- enough of us men, right?" Day says. "Hey, can I ask you a question since we both love Hillary? Would you want to look at my balls?" S.O.S.

SNL is all in on Trump-era politics -- can you remember the last time they skewered an Attorney General? -- with its dating parodies even finding ways to analyze sociopolitical maneuvers. The decision seems to be paying off; the sketch show's drawing its biggest ratings in 22 years.
