Forget the Trump impeachment hearings "Days of Our Impeachment" is where the real action is.

With President Donald Trump's impeachment hearings well underway and thefuture of NBC's "Days of Our Lives" in question, it only made sense for "Saturday Night Live" to combine the two in a drama-filled opening sketch."The first soap where you can't imagine any of the people in it having sex," one tease of the new "show" read.

The cast of characters included U.S. Rep Adam Schiff (Alex Moffat), U.S. Rep Jim Jordan (Mikey Day) and Ukraine ambassadors Marie Yovanovitch (Cecily Strong) andBill Taylor (surprise guest Jon Hamm). "I don't just kiss and tell," Hamm's Taylor said. "I kiss and tell and I take notes."

Kate McKinnon also made an appearance as Rudy Giuliani:"Mercury's in retrograde, so my powers are at an all-time high."
