Saturday Night Live’s” cold open segment featured “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” and guest Kellyanne Conway, played by SNL regular Kate McKinnon, explaining President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet choices, which some have described as unconventional.

One of those picks turns out to be Bryan Cranston, reprising his role as Walter White in “Breaking Bad.” He was introduced at about the 1:30 mark as Trump’s choice to head up the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Conway said that White was recommended by senior advisor Steve Bannon.

“Oh yes,” White said. “Steve’s the best. We’ve had some times.”

Tapper asked him about his experience with the agency.

“Trust me,” he said. “I know the DEA better than anyone — inside and out.”

White admits that he’d never met the president-elect, “But I like his style,” adding that he likes the idea of Trump’s promised wall at the southern border.

“Nothing comes in from Mexico meaning, a lot less competition for the rest of us,” he explained.
