Take an SNL Break and Laugh With Our Chaos President

Culture

Alec Baldwin, fresh from his Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for impersonating President Trump, returned to Saturday Night Live for the 43rd season opener. SNL comes off a banner year, also winning Outstanding Guest Actor in Comedy Series for Dave Chappelle, Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Melissa McCarthy's viral portrayal of Sean Spicer, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, again, for Kate McKinnon, and for the first time since 1993, Outstanding Variety, Musical or Comedy Series for SNL. 


The "Chaos President" sketch featured Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant): "people listen to me because I'm no nonsense, but I'm all nonsense," Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz (Melissa Villaseñor) of San Juan wondering whether President Trump realizes Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon) pleading "Don't tweet me" and Senator Chuck Schumer (Alex Moffat) stopping by for a slice.

Take a break from hurricanes, the threat of nuclear war and national embarrassment, and have a laugh on SNL.
