In the world of Saturday Night Live, it’s not a happy time for Donald Trump in the White House as Christmas approaches. The Michael Flynn investigation has made him sad, and even as Kellyanne Conway reminds him that the tax bill passed by the Senate is a big achievement, Alec Baldwin’s Trump is simply not in the holiday spirit.

But much like Scrooge from A Christmas Carol, Trump is visited by three ghosts. They are, naturally, Billy Bush, Vladimir Putin, and a mysterious figure that looks like Steve Bannon at first.

Watch the video below to see if Trump can get himself out of his cranky mood by the perspective provided by the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of Christmas present, and the ghost of Christmas future. And the ghost of Christmas flipped.
