On this week’s SNL cold open, Alec Baldwin returned as a hapless President Donald Trump, taking calls with world leaders and getting so visibly angry that he declares war against them.
This sketch had a lot of important issues to address, and successfully did a good job of proving a point while adding some humor to them. It touched on Mexico paying for the proposed border wall, Kellyanne Conway’s Bowling Green fiasco, the immigration ban, the White House’s statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day, and more.
Steve Bannon made a cameo as the Grim Reaper again, directing orders to President Trump to make some bad phone calls to leaders in Australia, Germany, and Zimbabwe.
Baldwin was also critiquing Trump before SNL aired:
If this is the type of entertainment we’ll be getting from Baldwin, we can’t wait until he hosts on Feb. 11. Watch it above.
