The Southern Republican Leadership Conference kicked off SNL's cold open this weekend, with a DJ (played by Cecily Strong) attempting to get the crowd hyped up about the "cool" 2016 GOP presidential pack despite these candidates holding some decidedly uncool positions on issues like gay rights.

"Put this guy in prison because he’s gonna steal your vote,” warned DJ Strong as she introduced Ben Carson. “But watch out because if sexuality works out the way he says it does, he’s gonna turn gay.”

Introducing Marco Rubio, DJ Strong teased that the Florida senator "believes marriage should be between one man and one sexy mamacita."

'Empire's Taraji P. Henson Bringing More Than 'Cookie' to This Weekend's SNL: WATCH"

When word broke that Taraji P. Henson would be hosting this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, the internet trembled with the collective gasps of Empire fans. On the one hand of course Henson would be hosting SNL; her name’s Cookie. Ask about her. As much of a runaway hit as Empire’s proven to be for Fox, Henson’s performance consistently stood out and defined the entire season.

For others, though, the significance of Henson’s upcoming guest spot stems from how few black women have ever actually hosted the show. Henson will be the 10th black woman to grace SNL’s stage as a host, following in the footsteps of Janet Jackson, Oprah, and Kerry Washington. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight the Empire actress explained that seeing herself spoofed in a recent SNL sketch hammered home just how much of a cultural phenomenon Empire has become.

 

"It's like a dream come true," Henson said of her hosting gig. "Legends do SNL. I'm a legend."
