Saturday Night Live returned from a brief hiatus this week. Of course, the opening sketch featured Alec Baldwin’s Trump parody. This time, “Trump” found himself in Union, Kentucky, where he spoke to a crowd of adoring rural voters. Was it funny? You betcha …
Trump took his first question from a local Kentucky coal miner who got laid off. Trump assured him that he “loves coal” and promised to make sure him, his children, and his children’s children would work in coal. When the man suggested that they just needed good jobs, and they need not be in coal, Trump “reassuringly” promised him it WOULD be in coal. Furthermore, Trump promised to eliminate ALL regulations. The voter didn’t understand but was sure Trump must be right, cause he’s the President.
The next question concerned Obamacare. When the voter lamented about having to drive 90 miles to a doctor, Trump promised him he wouldn’t have to worry about that drive anymore. Trump promised to get rid of all his healthcare. The man thanked him and said that he trusts that “there must be some reason he’s a billionaire.” Trump agreed and said he often said that to himself.
After that, another man ad a wife addicted to painkillers. Trump promised him he would get rid of all the rehab programs. Now she could live wherever she wanted to, Trump explained. Ater the man thanked him, Trump remarked that he loved them cause they support him no matter what — like eating chili after one finds a finger in it.
When the next woman told Trump her worries about her mortgage, Trump promised to take her house. She, of course, like the others — thanked him. He also promised to get rid of the minimum wage. There was one thing he promised to keep — the lead in their water.
Baldwin then assured them he was “one of them” and then launched into the famous “Live, from New York …” tagline.
