While Emily Blunt hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, the real star was, for the third week in a row, Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump, who dominated the cold open during a send-up of last week's "second and worst ever" presidential debate.
While SNL first started mocking the infamous "Trump Tape" during last week's opening sketch, the Republican presidential nominee's poor debate performance provided plenty of comedy fodder for this week's parody of his show down against Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton, as moderated by Alex Moffat's Anderson Cooper and Cecily Strong's Martha Raddatz.
After Trump and Clinton took to the debate stage -- and immediately began circling each other like gladiators looking to strike a killing blow -- Trump set the tone of the debate in his introduction.
"Tonight I'm going to do three things," he explained. "I'm going to huff, I'm going to puff, and I'm going to blow this whole thing."
Later, when asked if he felt he was a role model for America's kids, Trump explained, "I love kids, okay? I love them so much I marry them."
Trump also addressed his controversial stunt in which he brought several women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment and abuse to the debate forum.
"Listen, what I said is nothing compared to what Bill Clinton has done. Okay? He has abused women," Trump said. "And Martha, Anderson, hold on to your nips and your nuts, because four of these women are here tonight. Four of them."
"Mistresses? Bill, how could you? Oh, how will I go on with this debate? I'll never be able to remember my facts and figures now. Oh, Donald, no!" Clinton said, mocking distress before switching back to her confident smile. "Get real, I'm made of steel. This is nothing. Hi, girls."
"Martha, she is trying to silence these women, but they need to be respected and they need their voices heard," Trump responded.
"And what about the women accusing you of sexual assault?" Raddatz asked.
"They need to shut the hell up," Trump shot back.
This morning Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure with the show and Alec Baldwin's performance: "Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks."

The sketch also allowed SNL to poke fun at the Ken Bone phenomenon. Bone (played perfectly by Bobby Moynihan) introduced himself by singing "Y'all Ready For This?" before admitting that he's later turn out to be "a weird little creep."
After Trump's debate meltdown was thoroughly lambasted, Emily Blunt used her monologue to make the world a slightly happier place, given the depressing week in American politics.
"I'm so excited to be here," Blunt told the audience. "It just means I'm not at home watching the news. Right now, with this election, I just feel like there's dark clouds hanging over all of use and we need a break. So, if it's okay, I just want to see if we can get some fun, positive energy in here."
To combat the "dark clouds," viewers were treated to a musical monologue from the future Mary Poppins star, while those in attendance were treated to cookies and live puppies.
In one of the best sketches of the night, SNL slammed Trump's admitted, documented and alleged treatment of women in an epic parody of Beyonce's music video for "Sorry," off her Lemonade album.
Titled "Melanianade," the music video parody featured all of the women in the 70-year-old businessman's life – including his wife, Melania, his daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, his spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway and even former Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault -- showing him how they really feel (with baseball bats).
