It's time to make America cook again -- red, white, and a whole lotta blue!

Bryan Cranston didn't host "Saturday Night Live" on December 10, but he both opened and stole the show in a surprise return to his iconic "Breaking Bad" role. Cranston's Walter White was interviewed by CNN's Jake Tapper (Beck Bennett) in the cold open, which also featured President-Elect Donald Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon).

Apparently Walter White faked his own death and has just been "off the grid for a while." Steve Bannon discovered White "under the comments section at Breitbart" and recommended him to Donald Trump as the new head of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Tapper was confused about the appointment since White was introduced as just "a high school science teacher from New Mexico."

Jake Tapper: "Do you know anything about drug enforcement?"

Walter White: "Trust me, I know the DEA better than anyone, inside and out."

Tapper: "Mr. White, how did you even get considered for the job? Do you know Donald Trump?"

White: "Nope. Nope. But I'm a big fan. I like his style. He acts first, and then asks questions later. I also like that wall he wants to build. Nothing comes in from Mexico, meaning a lot less competition for the rest of us."

Tapper: "You mean jobs?"

White: [smirking] "Sure."

White also drops his classic "I am the one who knocks" line but, sadly, not "I am the danger."
