At the top, Michael Che made a rare sketch appearance as moderator Lester Holt, who introduced a coughing Hillary Clinton and “the man to blame for the bottom half of all his kids’ faces,” Donald Trump.
Baldwin got Trump’s podium-clutching and bizarre “China” pronunciations down perfectly. And while the real Trump waited until after the debate to complain about his microphone, he did so during the SNL debate. Beyond just interrupting Clinton with “wrong,” Baldwin’s Trump added “Shut up!,” admitted a make out session with Sean Hannity, and referred to Holt as both “jazzman” and “Coltrane.”
Just like the real Trump, Baldwin described Clinton in a way that sounded oddly familiar. “I have the best judgment, and the best temperament,” he said. “She’s the one with the bad temperament. She’s always screaming. She’s constantly lying. Her hair is weird and her face is completely orange. Except around the eyes where it’s white. Once she stops talking her mouth looks like a tiny little butthole.”
Instead of responding, Clinton yielded her two minutes back to Trump, who went on an unprovoked rant about “the blacks.” Asked by Holt what she thought about Trump’s comments at one moment, Clinton said, “I think I’m going to be president.” After another of his rants, she said she didn’t have a response, “more of a request: can America vote right now?”
I had a great time watching this last night, and absolutely LOVED Kate McKinnon's Willy Wonka inspired entrance. And seriously it seems Alec Baldwin was born to play Donald Trump, just like his former co-star Tina Fey was born to play Sarah Palin.
