The actors of "Saturday Night Live" found a way to brutally mock Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and President Donald Trump in the same sketch over the weekend, taking the duo to task for the sexual assault allegations waged against them.

O'Reilly, portrayed by actor Alec Baldwin, began the skit just like O'Reilly, with his "talking points memo."

"The subject of tonight's 'talking points memo' is the scandal everyone’s been talking about all week, a scandal no one thought I’d have the guts to address head on, about the shocking allegations of gross misconduct and abuse of power that have been leveled against the Obama administration," Baldwin as O'Reilly teased.

Next, O'Reilly talked to a Fox News female correspondent who wouldn't sit with O'Reilly in studio and would only do her report 500 yards away. When O'Reilly began to make her uncomfortable with sexual assault hints, the reporter had her voice distorted and face blurred out.

Afterward, O'Reilly went to commercial break, but acknowledged that "more than 60" advertisers had pulled their ads from his show after recent allegations of sexual assault were leveled against him. That left products like "dog cocaine" — "because you can teach a dog new tricks" and "Eliquis" — "it's Cialis for horses" — to sponsor O'Reilly's show.

Then he finally addressed the allegations on the show.

"This week, several women have come forward and accused me of offering them exciting opportunities here at Fox News," Baldwin, as O'Reilly, said.

That's when O'Reilly brought on the one guy who is "unimpeachable on all female issues" to come to his defense: none other than Trump, also portrayed by Baldwin.

"Thank you Mr. President, and thank you for coming to my defense last week even though no one asked you to. You even went as far as saying ‘Bill O’Reilly did nothing wrong,'" Baldwin's O'Reilly told Baldwin's Trump. "That's based upon?"

"A hunch, just a loose hunch," Baldwin’s Trump responds. "I’m more familiar with this case than, say, health care, but I really didn’t look into it much, no. I was busy being super presidential, by bombing a bunch of sh*t."

Afterward, O'Reilly thanks Trump for promoting sexual assault awareness.

"That’s right Bill, it’s a subject near and dear to my hand," Baldwin's Trump quips.

The entire segment makes light of recent allegations leveled against the real Bill O'Reilly. News broke earlier this month that O'Reilly has settled with five women who have accused of him of sexual harassment. O'Reilly has vehemently denied the allegations.

Of course, the segment also pokes at Trump, who was accused of sexual assault last October when an "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced of Trump bragging about grabbing women by the genitals.
