Saturday Night Live once again lampooned Donald Trump in it’s cold open, this time about his insatiable twitter habit. “I do it because my brain is bad,” Alec Baldwin says in his inimitable Trump impersonation, as Kellyanne Conway and a team of advisors struggle to get him to focus on his national security briefing. But the best part is Baldwin’s one-line response to Trump’s pathetic tweet just minutes after the opening aired.
Donald Trump just can’t let the pitch go by.
Half the fun of doing these sketches on SNL must be that Alec Baldwin and the cast know that they’ll get Trump’s panties in a knot. But this one’s was extra special, because they basically begged him to have a twitter tantrum. And Trump delivered, in the most pathetic way possible.
Just tried watching Saturday Night Live – unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad
