During SNL's cold open sketch about the presidential town hall debate, Alec Baldwin-as-Trump is asked about whether he likes kids and says, "I love the kids, okay? I love them so much I marry them."
After it's pointed out that Trump has said Bill Clinton's accusers should be believed, Baldwin-as-Trump says of his own accusers: "They need to shut the hell up."
And after stalking Clinton repeatedly during last week's town hall debate — something Trump denies he actually did — Baldwin-as-Trump is asked by a black man whether he can be a "devoted president to all the people." He responds by calling the man "Denzel" and launches into an answer about violence in the inner cities.
Then he uses it as a segue to call for putting Hillary Clinton in jail: "She's committed so many crimes, she's basically a black."
That was a great show last night. I especially loved Trump as the shark from "Jaws."
Now typically I would wait and make this my last post of the day, kind of like a palate cleanser for all of the unsavory news we have to absorb.
However what made this a more newsworthy item was that Trump was so irritated by the bit that they took to Twitter to respond.
Yeah that Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks so bad it is quite likely to earn him an Emmy, just like the one that Tina Fey earned for her "stinky" impression of a certain politician back in 2008.Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me.Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016
The show is great and you know the fact that it is getting under Trump's skin like this only reinforces that simple truth.
