Adam Sandler returned to NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” for the first time in 24 years, paying tribute to friend and former cast-member Chris Farley and taking potshots at politicians.

Reviving his famous “Opera Man” character, Sandler recapped the day’s news.


After addressing a few of the other stories of the day — from “Game of Thrones” to the Kentucky Derby — Opera Man turned to politics.

“Kamala, Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Warren,” he sang. “They have slim chance-o, they no wear pants-o.”

“Cory, Pete and Beto, will have to wait-o … here we go again! 70-year-old men,” he ended with an image showing Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.

He then focused in on Biden and recent complaints about him respecting peoples’ personal space, singing, “gropa, gropa, sniffa, sniffa, young or old-a, makes no diffa.”

The actor and comedian didn’t stop with the Democrats — he did take a few shots at the Trump administration as well. (RELATED: Adam Sandler To Host ‘SNL’ For The First Time)

“Trumpa-dumpa, Trumpa-dumpa, I make-a the wall. I play-a da golf, and they take-a da fall,” Opera Man sang as an image flashed showing indicted former Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort.

Opera Man also suggested that when Attorney General William Barr failed to show up to the House Judiciary Committee hearing that was scheduled earlier in the week, they should have looked for him at Wendy’s.

Sandler also sang a song about that time NBC fired him and delivered an emotional tribute to the late Chris Farley.
