Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump on SNL in the Wake of P*ssygate Is One for the Ages

Alec Baldwin did not disappoint on SNL cold open Saturday night. Portraying Donald Trump in the wake of the leaked tape of him making vulgar comments about women, Baldwin first lampooned Trump's complete inability to even articulate the word 'apologize.'

"I apple-gize," he said, or something like that.

Much like the candidate himself, Baldwin's Trump explained away his deeply offensive behavior by saying it happened more than ten years ago, when "I was a young childish 59-year-old man."

At the end of the faux interview, Baldwin's Trump made a statement apparently sympathizing with the victims of Hurrican Matthew in Florida, where he has property. The interview was over, but, uh-oh, Mr. Trump's microphone was still on.

"I wish I was that hurricane ripping through all that hot Miami pussy," he said to someone off camera.

Much hilarity, and a little bit of truth.
