It’s been three weeks since Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, and apparently, the writers spent much of their time since then focusing on how to fire on the president and his administration. On Saturday, SNL fired hard.
The cold open’s first scene focuses on Trump in the Oval Office, and after he determines his daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are not around to keep him out of trouble because they’re celebrating the Jewish Sabbath, Trump declares “when the Jews are away, the Goys will play.”
Then, he summons adviser and ex-Breitbart head Steve Bannon to his office. Shenanigans ensue, especially when Trump has to telephone the U.S.’s biggest allies but can’t stop thinking about the Apprentice’s ratings and Frederick Douglass.
The only thing missing from this sketch? No appearance by Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer.
