Alec Baldwin might as well be a Saturday Night Live series regular now, thanks to President Trump. The Oscar and Emmy-nominated star returned to SNL yet again to reprise his frequent role.
In the cold open of March 12th's SNL episode, aliens have attacked Earth. The situation appears dire, and Commander-in-Chief Trump comes to address the troops. But instead of delivering an inspiring speech and saving the human race, Baldwin-as-Trump diverts the conversation... to the coal industry.
"Here's what we're gonna do," Baldwin says, with his traditional, puckered-lip Trump impression. "We're going to bring coal back. We're gonna have so much coal, you're going to say, 'Where did all this call come from? I never knew there could be so much coal.'"
"Sir, what about the aliens?" Kenan Thompson asks. "They just vaporized the entire state of California."
"So then I won the popular vote?" Baldwin responds.
