There was one person who wasn’t pleased to see Alec Baldwin return to “Saturday Night Live” last night: President Donald Trump.
Trump slams SNL for mocking his national emergency
After a few weeks away, Baldwin appeared as Trump in the show’s cold open mocking the president’s White House Rose Garden speech where he declared a national emergency in order to build his border wall. On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted, “Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!” He also pondered how “networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution?”
In a follow-up tweet, Trump once again called the media “the enemy of the people.”
Baldwin replied on Twitter saying “Trump whines.”
On “SNL,” Baldwin’s nearly seven-minute faux press conference took aim at many of the president’s declarations.
“I’m here to declare a very urgent, important national emergency. This is a big one so I don’t want to waste any time. That’s why first I want to blow my own horn a little bit, OK?” Baldwin began before mocking Trump’s health exam and upcoming summit with North Korea.
“Let’s cut to the chase, folks: We need wall. OK? We have a tremendous amount of drugs flowing into this country from the southern border, or ‘the Brown Line,’ as many people asked me to call it,” Baldwin continued. “That’s why we need wall. Because wall works. Wall makes safe. You don’t have to be smart to understand that; in fact, it’s even easier to understand if you’re not smart. You all see why I need to fake this national emergency, right? I have to because I want to. It’s really simple.”
Trump told reporters Friday “I could do the wall over a longer period of time. I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster.”
Baldwin wrapped up the sketch by taking questions from the press. He poked fun at Trump’s tiff with CNN’s Jim Acosta, played by Kyle Mooney, who said statistics show that undocumented immigrants commit less crime than native-born Americans.
“Oh my God, Jim, those numbers are faker than this emergency,” Baldwin quipped. “In conclusion, this is a total emergency, a five-alarm blaze, which means I have to go to Mar-a-Lago and play some golf.”
