In the weekly sketch comedy series’ latest First Lady bit, guest host Kumail Nanjiani swoops in as a patient, empathetic call center operator in Pakistan.  When Melania chases away the sadness with mail-ordered Gucci handbags, Nanjiani’s nameless operator to help her with delivery issues… and life issues as well.
