Alec Baldwin‘s uncharacteristic absence on Saturday Night Live as President Donald Trump did not go unnoticed this past week. But the unparalleled Trump impersonator will advent to SNL on Feb. 11 for an unsurpassed 17th time, setting a new cameo record.

It will be the first time since post-inauguration that Baldwin will take on his second persona, hosting the show with singer Ed Sheeran. 

And though SNL‘s latest episode did not feature a presidential appearance, politics remained the topic of discussion with cast regular Beck Bennett embodying Vladimir Putin. Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari hosted, with his standup monologue addressing post-election issues and racial tension.

With Trump’s presidency just dawning, we’re sure this won’t be the last time Baldwin puts on his Trump wig.
