In this Saturday Night Live skit Kenan Thompson is Al Sharpton, the host of Politics Nation. The running gag is that Sharpton runs words together, making for some very funny misunderstandings. He interviews a spokesperson for J.P. Morgan, which he refers to "JiP Morgan."

Mick Jagger is the spokesperson for the bank who explains the $3 billion trading loss. Al just wants to know where the whale is. Fred Armisen is New York City's Mayor Bloomberg who is on the show to explain how to find a great job in New York. Jason Sudeikis discusses jobs available at Sockeye Seafood Cannery in Alaska.
