It’s been a boffo week for political parody, and the comedic minds at “Saturday Night Live” have benefited from the windfall.

First, we have a dream sequence involving a pair of Hillary Clinton impersonators (Kate McKinnon and visiting “SNL” alumna Amy Poehler) and a scene-stealing cameo from Tina Fey, reviving her Sarah Palin act for the occasion.

“On Christmas Eve 2007, I was cocky, too,” the former incarnation of Clinton tells the 2015 model. “And then someone named Barack Obama stumbled out of a soup kitchen with a basketball and a cigarette and stole my life.” (NBC via YouTube):

And then we have a throwback to just a few days ago, in the form of a sketch spoofing last week’s GOP presidential debate — except in this version, Donald Trump makes unflattering public claims about Jeb Bush’s bathroom habits (which actually isn’t too far off from what the real Trump would say) and Ted Cruz declares, “I have what doctors call ‘a punchable face.” (NBC via YouTube):
