“Saturday Night Live” returned after weeks away and opened with Alec Baldwin’s President Donald Trump taking time to visit his supporters.
“We all love Trump, don’t we? We do. We do,” Baldwin’s commander-in-chief said. “I just had an amazing week, folks. I met with leaders from China, Egypt, and Jordan. Gorsuch was confirmed, the media is saying nice things and nobody is talking about Russia. Wow, what a difference 59 Tomahawk missiles can make.”
Baldwin’s Trump then began to ask those in the crowd if they liked that he “bombed Syria.”
Most of the supporters were happy about the strike but wanted to talk to the President about issues that impacted them, like jobs.
“I’m going to do everything I can to make sure you all work in coal for the rest of your lives,” Baldwin’s Trump told one miner. “In Trump’s America, men work in two places: Coal mines and Goldman Sachs.”
Others brought up issues like health care.
“We’re going to get rid of it,” Baldwin as Trump said.
“You’re going to get rid of my health care? Like, all of it?” one of his supporters said.
“All of it, gone,” Baldwin responded in his normal Trump wig and long red tie.
The fake Trump then went on to commend the loyalty of his supporters.
“That’s why I came here. You people stand by me no matter what,” he said. “It’s like you found a finger in your chili, but you still eat the chili because you told everyone how much you love chili.”
Baldwin’s Trump continued going over programs he was going to “junk” — programs that his supporters seemingly enjoyed and used — before rushing off to catch his helicopter back to Washington.
“Keep eating that finger chili,” he said. “Remember, I’m one of you, remember I’m one of you. … and live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”
