Saturday Night Live brought back their impression of Rev. Al Sharpton on his MSNBC show, portraying the "Politics Nation" host as a bumbling fool having serious trouble reading from a teleprompter -- and understanding the news at all.

"I'm Al Sharpton Lettuce -- excuse me, let us talk about what's going on on Wall Street," Sharpton, played by Keenan Thompson, opened the sketch.

Moving to his first interview, he introduced an executive at JPMorgan Chase, a firm he called "Jip Morgan."

"Good evening Reverend, it's just actually J-P Morgan," the executive, played by guest host Mick Jagger, corrected.

"OK then, you can call me A-L Sharpton," Sharpton replied. "Now, it's being reported that your company lost all this money because of some risky trades made by a trader named the London Whale. Where is this whale?"

"Well it's not an actual whale. He's here in England," Jagger said.

"Oh so he's on land. He's beached! Well that's a shame," Sharpton sympathized.

"No the London Whale is a nickname for an employee here who made some unfortunate decisions and lost a lot of money," Jagger explained.

"Well $3 billion. That's a lot of plankton," Sharpton said.
