Alec Baldwin returned to “Saturday Night Live” last night, seizing a golden opportunity to lampoon Donald Trump’s disastrous press conference from earlier this week. Filled with puns and not-so-subtle references to the contents of the intelligence dossier that once again proved there’s no end to the absurdity of this incoming administration, the cold open was a veritable stream of laughs. Watch below.
As you do, note the Russian flag pin on Baldwin’s lapel and his increasingly ridiculous facial expressions. Somehow, his Trump is actually more receptive to the reporters asking him questions than the real Trump was this week, even when one points out that people could die if the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is repealed: “Listen, sweetheart, I’m about to be president,” he replies. “We’re all gonna die.”
Elsewhere on last night’s “SNL,” Tina Fey made an appearance during “Rogue One” star Felicity Jones’ monologue. Check out the clip below.
