SNL Hits the Nerve of How Casually the Mar-a-Lago President Takes His Job
Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week for a cold open featuring some of the show's strongest impersonation talent.
First off is a creepy Mike Pence (played by Beck Bennett) listing off Trump's accomplishments (it's a very short list) and calling his wife "mother."
Baldwin's Trump says, "I know I'm bad with women, but that sounds even worse." Trump, basking in the glow of his meager accomplishments (and gaffes), is reminded that nearly all of them took place not in the Oval Office, but in Mar-a-Lago. He goes on to brag about taunting North Korea.
Pence replies, "Sir, I love when you joke so casually about North Korea."
Jimmy Fallon plays Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in a silent manner that seems inspired by Kate McKinnon's perfect Justin Bieber impression.
Baldwin/Trump tells Kushner, "You're such an inspiration. You showed everybody that if you're born rich and marry my daughter, you can do anything you want."
Trump handles the Bannon-Kushner feud the best way he knows: like an elimination night on a reality TV show.
The loser has to "immediately leave the Oval Office and join Kellyanne Conway in the basement."
Who will win "The Adviser" and take on the job of fixing the mess Trump has made? Watch:
