The discovery of a device that translates what dogs are saying into English on “SNL” revealed that host Scarlett Johansson’s dog was a closet Trump supporter, much to her horror.
Johansson played a scientist named Helen, demonstrating the amazing discovery, but within moments of strapping a helmet on Max the dog that allowed humans to understand him, he proclaimed himself a bigtime Trump fan.
Watch the full sketch in the video above.
“I like park, and leash, and I like Trump. He’s my man,” Max, voiced by Beck Bennett, proclaimed.

“It must be a translation error, some kind of glitch,” Johansson tried to explain.
“There’s no glitch,” Max said. “Donald trump is our president. He carried the electoral college fair and square.”
Johansson wasn’t the only one horrified. Cecily Strong, playing one of the corporate masters holding the purse strings of the research project, was definitely not happy about Max’s political leanings.
“Your dog is a monster,” Strong told Johansson.
“No, he’s not,” Johansson protested. “Just let me talk to him. Max, I’m sorry, but you’re just a dog. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Excuse me, Helen, but yes I do,” Max argued, fighting to get the helmet off his head. “It’s just that condescending attitude that made people want to vote for Trump in the first place.”
Johansson tried to explain to Max why Trump and his policies are bad, and how they might actually affect the dog’s life.
“You just assume that because I’m a trump supporter that I’m a xenophobic racist,” Max accused.
“No, I don’t,” Johansson shot back. “Your best friend at the dog park is a chihuahua That means he’s from Mexico and Trump wants to kick them out of the country.”
“If Aquito was born here,” Max answered, “he has nothing to worry about. This is a nation of laws.”
