Later, as in all the best soap operas, Kyle Mooney’s Gordon Sondland explained that he only reversed his testimony on the quid pro quo because he had amnesia. By the time Pete Davidson showed up as Michael Avenatti and Hamm’s Taylor started making out with “telenovela star” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the sketch had fully gone off the rails.
