"Girls Trip" star Tiffany Haddish made history Saturday night as the first black female stand-up comic to host "Saturday Night Live." "I grew up in foster care," Haddish said in her opening monologue. "I've lived in a lot of group homes and my favorite show growing up was 'SNL.' You have no idea how difficult it is to get a bunch of black and Hispanic kids to watch 'SNL' over 'In Living Color.'" Haddish also touched on the spate of sexual harassment allegations erupting across Hollywood by offering a sage "Tiff tip." "Listen fellas," she said. "If you've got your thing-thing out, and she got all her clothes on, you're wrong. You're in the wrong." In a meta moment, the show also addressed the controversy last week’s host Larry David faced after joking in his opening monologue about picking up women at a concentration camp. David returned last night in his recurring role as Sen. Bernie Sanders, saying: "We're really going to lace into people if they don't say what's politically correct. Like these comics out there who think it's OK to make jokes about concentration camps. That guy should rot in hell." Host Tiffany Haddish gives men being accused of sexual harassment some advice and explains why she'll never stop repeating her Alexander McQueen dress.
