WATCH: SNL’s Jeff Sessions Gets A Jewish Lesson From Al Franken

These days, there’s an unlikely, one-sided bromance going on between Al Franken and Jeff Sessions. In the world of “Saturday Night Live,” that is.

During the comedy show’s latest “Weekend Update,” Sessions (Kate McKinnon) and Franken (Alex Moffat) paid a brief visit to discuss their budding relationship.

“Al and I are actually great friends,” the attorney general boasted.

“That’s overstating it,” Franken replied.

Sessions then bragged that Franken had been showing him “Jew stuff,” to which Franken deadpanned: “We had lunch at a deli, Jeff.”

Other Jew-y lessons Sessions has learned? How to say the word “schmear” and the joys of matzo ball soup.

Check out the clip below, and stick around long enough for a bit involving Sessions’ fake hand.
