Bryan Cranston returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to help the show mock President-elect Donald Trump‘s cabinet picks — and he brought along an old friend.

In the show’s cold open, Cranston returned with his iconic Breaking Bad character Walter White, who has apparently been picked by Trump to head up the DEA on the advice of Trump’s real-life chief strategist Steve Bannon.

When CNN host Jake Tapper (played by Beck Bennett) asked White how he knew Bannon, the meth kingpin — sorry, science teacher — laughed and said they’ve “had some times.” (He also revealed that they met “in the comments section of Breitbart,” Bannon’s conservative news site.)

White admitted that he didn’t personally know Trump but was “a big fan.”

“I like his style,” he said. “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 asked, “You mean jobs?”

“Sure,” White replied with a smirk.

White also unveiled a new slogan for Trump’s administration.

“Donald Trump and I agree, it’s time to make America cook again. We want to fill this nation with red, white and a whole lot of blue.”

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 p.m. ET) on NBC
