Donald Trump and his White House have continued to give Saturday Night Plenty of material for their skits. Alec Baldwin again returned to the NBC show last night to portray the President.
Saturday night’s skit revolved around the President’s penchant for holding political rallies. The spot also mocked Trump supporters who are swayed by wild right wing conspiracy theories.
Baldwin’s Trump began the sketch by saying, “These Democrats – led by Adam Shifty Schiff, he’s a real Schiff-head – it’s a deep state conspiracy and tonight I’d like to bring up some of my loyal followers to explain what’s really happening in the country.”
Trump was then joined by a supporter who told him, “I was a prisoner in Syria until last week when you freed me so I just wanted to say thank you for bringing jobs back… to ISIS. And I promise that I will make ISIS great again.”
Another supporter complained, “This man is under attack. It’s deep state lizard conspiracy, and everyone’s in on it. The CIA, the FBI, the MIC, the KEY, and the MOUSE.”
Baldwin’s Trump also took a shot at the President’s recent geography faux pas. “I came back for a surprise rally because I heard they’re building a wall on the border of Colorado to keep the New Mexicans out,” he said.
The skit also featured appearances from Bill Clinton (portrayed by former cast member Darrell Hammond), Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
