The actors of "Saturday Night Live" mocked Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the weekend as Forrest Gump in their "cold open" skit, ridiculing him in a way they'd never do to a Democratic attorney general like Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch, who both served under former President Barack Obama.

Sessions was portrayed by "SNL" actress Kate McKinnon.

The skit begins with Sessions sitting on a park bench at a bus stop in a scene very familiar to that in the hit 1990's movie "Forrest Gump."

"I'm the attorney general of the whole United States. I got to meet the president and everything," Sessions tells actress Leslie Jones on the park bench, eating from a box of chocolates.

"I always say life is like a box of chocolates," Sessions said, quoting a famous like from the movie. Then, they implied that the real-life Sessions in a racist.

"Sure are a whole lot of brown ones in there," he continued.

The actors didn't leave the scene without getting a dig at White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Holding up the now infamous picture of Conway on her knees on a couch in the Oval Office, "Sessions" said: "This is my best good friend Kellyanne — she ain't got no legs. We're about as close as peas and carrots. She's the best talker you ever heard. They say she could sell stink to a skunk, but they don't let her talk anymore."

As the skit rolls on, Sessions speaks to several other people on the bench at the bus stop, where he openly admits wrongdoing in talking to the Russians.

At one point, Sessions tells another man that he was on the front page Wall Street Journal, except it was a story about Sessions allegedly committing perjury.

"Yeah, I had a bad week," Sessions said.

Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin shows up — portrayed by Beck Bennett — and fist bumps Sessions.

"This meeting never happened," Putin says.

"I wasn't gonna remember it anyway," Sessions replied.

At the end of the skit, actress Octavia Spencer, who famously played "Minny" in the hit 2011 movie "The Help," arrives at the bus stop holding what appears to be a pie.

"Are you Jeff Sessions, the one Coretta Scott King wrote that letter about?" Minny asks.

"Oh, wow, that was 40 years ago. You still remember that?" Sessions replied.

"Ohhhhh, a lot of people in Alabama remember that, sir," Minny follows up.

"And I have a pie I made especially for you," she adds, implying that it is the famous pie she served up in "The Help," which she made from human feces.

"That is a mighty kind gesture," Sessions tells Minny. "Hey, is this what I think it is?"

"It is," Minny replies with a sly smirk.

"Mmmm, my favorite!" Session says, taking a big bite of the pie.
