Trump Won’t Like That Alec Baldwin’s Parody Of Him Is Getting More Nixonian (And Hilarious)

Alec Baldwin returned this week to troll President Trump by doing his parody of him that America loves and Trump hates. Baldwin found a way this time to probably annoy Trump even more. This week 45 began looking a lot more like 37 — Richard M. Nixon.

The premise of the Saturday Night Live cold open this week was spoofing the big interview NBC’s Lester Holt did with Trump earlier this week.  It began with Holt, played by cast member Michael Che, asking “Trump” about the firing of F.B.I. Director, James Comey. The Donald was more than happy to boast about how he did it because of the Russian investigation into his 2016 campaign. Strangely enough, Baldwin didn’t really don’t go far from Trump’s actual words in the real interview.

After “Trump’s” admission of obstructing justice, Holt asks if “he’s done” now, cause he just got 45 to admit to a crime on camera. His producer, through his earpiece, apparently tells him “no” as “nothing matters.” Again, funny — but maybe too close to real life.

“Trump” then boasts even more. He brags about how nothing can touch him as he has the GOP in the palm of his hand. He then summons Paul Ryan to bring him two scoops of ice cream. Trump then announces that he can’t be anything like Nixon because he gets two scoops in addition to not being a crook.  Baldwin strikes the classic “Nixonian” pose at that point with his arms raised and the “peace sign” signifying “two scoops.”

Again, this skit is hilarious, but it may strike “too close to home.”

Check out the full skit featuring Alec Baldwin and Michael Che below and be sure to laugh, just so you don’t cry … it really is that “spot-on”:

Saturday Night Live can be seen on NBC, Saturday nights at 10 pm eastern time.
