Donald Trump must save the world from aliens on ‘SNL,’ and his response sounds very familiar
On Saturday Night Live’s latest cold open, President Donald Trump doesn’t have to worry about fighting the forces of frustrated Democrats, the allegations that he’s too friendly with Russia, or whatever North Korea is up to. Instead, his concern is fending off humanity from Zorblatt 9 aliens that are coming to attack the world in 2018.
As the U.S. military readies to save the earth in the sketch, Trump—played, of course, by Alec Baldwin—gives a final pep talk to the troops. Predictably, it does not go well.
“We are going to beat these aliens, because we have got the best military,” Trump says before pivoting back to his old-time campaign talk. “But we don’t win anymore. The aliens are laughing at us. They’re killing us and they’re laughing at us.”
And from there, Baldwin shines as Trump as only he can, especially when finds out the aliens have totally destroyed California.
