On Thursday, for an episode of Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Summer Edition, Alec Baldwin made an epic return as Donald Trump.
During the segment, Baldwin made fun of how Trump handled the solar eclipse, the Charlottesville rally, the biased media, Steve Bannon’s departure as chief strategist, Afghanistan, and the infamous topic of the border wall with Mexico.
The segment started out with Baldwin’s Trump holding a rally at the Phoenix Convention Center.
“How about that eclipse, folks?” Baldwin opened, wearing sunglasses. “A lot of people don’t know this but you can damage your eyes by looking into the eclipse. No one predicted this, they wouldn’t have. I figured it out all by myself. let me take these glasses off and see what you people look like. Wow, everyone’s so white, so white here. It’s fantastic.”
He then went on to talk about the Charlottesville rally. He added, “As we all know, there was a tragic victim that came out of Charlottesville, me. Folks, the media has treated me so unfairly by reporting my entire remarks, even the bad ones.”
“I wanted to set the record straight about exactly what I said and I have the transcript right here,” he said as he pulled out a piece of paper.
Baldwin’s Trump starts to read the paper until he realized he was reading the remarks he made about women in a leaked 2005 Access Hollywood tape.
Baldwin’s Trump continued to talk about the promise to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Then went on to criticize the “dishonest media” for not talking about his accomplishments.
“I’ve done so much. First off, last night I solved Afghanistan. I sat down with our military, we looked at the map and I asked the hard questions, like which one is Afghanistan? And is that blue thing an ocean?”
On the topic of the wall, he talked about how the taxpayers will pay for it.
“If I have to shut down the government to get it built, I will,” Baldwin’s Trump said. “Congress will close. No IRS, military will stay home, there will be no FBI, Latin gangs like MS-13 will roam free chopping up people because we want this wall, right?”
Baldwin’s Trump gave Steve Bannon a “proper goodbye” as well.
