In the sketch, Baldwin’s O’Reilly danced around the sexual harassment allegations against the real O’Reilly, claims which have led to the exodus of nearly 60 sponsorships from The O’Reilly Factor. The allegations against O’Reilly and Trump’s comments came during Sexual Harassment Awareness Month, a bit of irony that SNL exploited on Saturday.
