He's back!

Bryan Cranston brought back his beloved Breaking Bad character Walter White during Saturday Night Live to poke fun at Donald Trump.

During the cold opening of the show, Cranston's White said he was picked by the president elect to be the new head of the DEA; a move mocking some of Trump's actual picks to fill out his Cabinet.

White was more than happy to bring back the "red, white and a whole lot of blue," explaining that faking his own death, a nod to how AMC's Breaking Bad ended, was no biggie as some of Trump's other picks had done the same.

The White character said he was recommended by Trump strategist Steve Bannon and was found by leaving comments on Breitbart's website.

Cranston nailed the character and had some great one-liners that Breaking Bad fans will love.
