Following a notable absence last week, Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live as President Trump, just in time to offer some inspiring words to troops facing an attack from extraterrestrials.
“Who here loves Trump?” Baldwin’s commander-in-chief, decked out in an Air Force jacket, asks the surprised troops before pronouncing, “We’re going to bring coal back.”
Growing frustrated for a legitimate plan to combat the threat, a general played by cast member Kenan Thompson presses Baldwin’s Trump on a plan to combat the aliens, who just vaporized California.
“So I won the popular vote?” Baldwin’s Trump asks.
“Sir, everyone in California is dead!” the exasperated general presses.
“Even Arnold?” Baldwin’s Trump shoots back.
Parodying the president’s current problems over his administration’s ties with Russia, Baldwin’s Trump doesn’t think we should jump to any conclusions about the aliens, who have already overrun nearly the entire United States.
"We don't know that they're from Zorblat-9. I've heard it's a fantastic place," Baldwin’s Trump said to the general.
"Oh my god, does he have business ties on Zorblat-9?" a shocked soldier reacts.
Later in the show, host Scarlett Johansson appears as Ivanka Trump in a commercial parody for the first daughter’s own brand of perfume, Complicit.
“She’s a woman who knows what she wants and knows what she’s doing,” a narrator says. “A feminist. An advocate. A champion for women… but, like… how?”
We see Johansson’s Ivanka looking in a mirror putting on lipstick, while a reflection of Baldwin’s Trump looks back at her doing the same exact thing.
“She doesn’t crave the spotlight. But we see her. “Oh, how we see her,” the narrator continues. “Complicit - the fragrance for the woman who could stop all this, but won’t.”
After criticizing SNL often on Twitter, lately Trump has had little to say on social media about the comedy show. But following last week’s program, the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., joked on Instragram about his portrayal on the show.
“If you ever need a Don Jr fill in I'm available and I do a much better job with the hair than Mikey,” Trump Jr. wrote, referring to cast member Mikey Day, who plays him on the show.
Dear @nbcsnl I stole somebody's snack today (hint it may be Eric). Don't tell him. #heshungry #snl #weekendupdate. PS if you ever need a Don Jr fill in I'm available and I do a much better job with the hair than Mikey��
