Alec Baldwin Returns To ‘Saturday Night Live’ For First Post-Election Appearance As Donald Trump
To the delight of fans, Alec Baldwin made a highly-anticipated comeback to "Saturday Night Live" as Donald Trump. It was the actor's first post-election appearance. This time, he chose to portray the most powerful man in America today. However, the president-elect didn't seem to find the 58-year-old actor's performance amusing at all.
After watching parts of the show, the business mogul-turned-politician tweeted that the "SNL" episode was "totally one-side, biased" and "had nothing funny at all," according to NBC News. In response to the New York billionaire's request for equal time, the "Shadow" actor tweeted back, "Election is over," adding, "There is no more equal time."
Alec Baldwin might have given Mr. Trump enough reason to fret over his post-election performance on 'Saturday Night Live'." In the comedy's show's latest episode, the "Beetlejuice" star portrayed the US president as overly anxious while reciting the mantra "big boobs, big buildings."
Apparently, the real-estate tycoon was having a severe panic attack after finding out via Google what ISIS' mission real was. The "Cooler" actor's Trump impersonation also threw potshots at the president's ability to keep his campaign promises. When told that it would be very difficult to deport 11,000 immigrants, Mr. Trump says, "Scrap it."
And when informed that a lot of Americans actually liked Obamacare, he responded by saying "Just keep it." The New York Times also voiced similar comments regarding Alec Baldwin's post-election performance on "Saturday Night Live."
In particular, the online news portal noted a segment in the political skit wherein the president asks Vice-President elect-Mike Pence's thoughts on a Broadway show the later attended. Mr. Pence responded, "It was good; I got a very good lecture." Incoming President Trump didn't seem to be in a jovial mood, as he took to his Twitter account after the show to blast "Hamilton" before training his guns on "SNL."
"The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior," the president tweeted. Alec Baldwin's post-election appearance on "Saturday Night Live" might have slighted Donald Trump, but followers of the show remain hooked nevertheless.
