SNL takes on the third and final presidential debate, and yes it is awesome.

So many great lines.

Perhaps my favorite bit was when Alec Baldwin, playing Donald Trump,  suggested that Kate McKinnon, playing our next President, had not accomplished anything in the last thirty years, allowing her to launch into a listing of all of her past accomplishments.

There is also a shout out to Sarah Palin, as one of the "heavy hitters" that support Donald Trump, along with the best Baldwin brother, Stephen.

    $arah: "Oooooh, I was mentioned! I'm still relevant!" Ummmmmm no, honey, but you keep thinking so!

    I hope that Alec is nominated for an Emmy. His spot on imitation of Trump is as great as was Fey's of $arah. No disrespect to McKinnon as Hillary. These debate send ups have been brilliant!

    I was really hoping Baldwin would say"I know you are it what am I?" when she called him a puppet.

      I was sorry that Baldwin didn't simply repeat Trump's "Not a puppet. Not a puppet. You're a puppet." It was a line just waiting for SNL.

      It was rather sweet when Tom Hanks did the "father of the year" thing on SNL because he does have that mid-30's kid who has been a problem child and he is estranged from. It was rather bittersweet seeing him doing the "father" thing on tv being that his son "Chet Haze" is lost to him.

    I think Alec Baldwin will be up for an Emmy due to his spot-on portrayal of Trump. Sure will be rooting for him to do so along with you, 11:29 AM!

      If Alec Baldwin wins the Emmy for his portrayal of Trump on SNL, you can be sure the Orange One will claim the Emmys are rigged. And Alec will never let Stephen forget it.

      @ 4:17 More like the orange one will say Alec only got it because of him a la Sarah with Tina Fey.

      the orange one has already said the emmy's are rigged.

      Clinton and the DNC have a huge warchest and with her so far ahead, they can turn their resources down ticket. Nate Silver has the Democrats retaking the Senate at around 65% +. They might even get a 51-49. So, yeah, I think the Republicans are running in panic, trying to put out fires and salvage whatever they can. As Paul Ryan showed, they are sweating the Senate. Democrats are going to make gains in the House too, but it will be a longshot for them to take the House too.

    Trump ghostwriter: Losing makes him a desperate ‘little boy’ with ‘a blend of rage and depression’

    “I’m going say this softly in a soft voice because he doesn’t,” Schwartz said when asked if Trump cares about the voters putting their faith in him. “He isn’t capable of caring about anyone. That’s the heart of the problem. He’s so needy himself that he needs to spend all of his energy on filling himself up, and, Joy, there simply isn’t any left to give.”

    Alex Baldwin has Trump spot on. His second debate parody was funnier with the Jaws music and it hit a raw nerve in Trump cuz he knew he was trying to intimidate Hillary with his bodily ranting. But SNL sure has Hillary down too. They see that in the last thirty years of the Republican's kicking her ass down, that she is as tough as nails. I laughed so hard in the second debate parody about the mistresses. Yeah, there were things that SNL could have done that had actually happened in the last debate but Trump somehow took care of that himself and they knew it. Thank you SNL for the laughs at a real scary hombre.

    Sigh...

    I just hired 2 interns last week and have been training them. One, few issues. The other? Has pretty much never had to work at a job in his life (I get the feeling his previous employment was cushy.)

    Why oh why can't Sarah and Todd raise everyone. Their kids are the hardest workers and most dependable people. They were handed nothing without work behind it.

      I've hired interns before as well, they had to have graduate degrees in our field and agree to work for free for two years. In my field there tend to be no religious believers and it does work as a detriment against them if they profess any sort of religious penchant.

      Basically they all must come from good families that have the means to support a child with a masters or doctorate that can afford to spend two years on an internship with no pay but with a small stipend for daily expenses but with parents that can afford two years of subsidized world travel, whether it be towards our organization or their child's travel specifically.

      I don't think any of this needs to be discussed with children until they actually reach puberty and find that they are queer and like same sex.

      If we discuss this too early on we plant ideas in kids heads that they might not be okay or might not be comfortable in their own bodies.

      If you are gay or trans or whatever you'lll realize that when puberty hits and the hormones kick in, earlier than that is just a kid trying to be different if you tell them that is okay.

      I'm hearing about 7 year old kids feeling they are stuck in "the wrong body" and really, they don't even know for another 4 or 5 years what their "body" or their "sex" really is.

      We are creating a very confusing situation now with all this talk with young ones regarding sex and gender and reproduction.

      maybe too many of you are now raised off farms like in the past decades, but I cereainly knew what "sex" was long before I was old enough for kindergarten. Also, hearing about gay or transgender peoples does not make you "which teams".

    I couldn't remember who it was I'd heard Trump make a similar statement about either suspense or keeping 'em guessing (I couldn't recall the exact wording but it turns out that he did use the idea of "suspense") to during an interview. It turns out it was to Maria Bartiromo on 9/16 and in a morning interview. A while later that day he made his very short statement about Pres Obama being born an American. On the day when Trump knew everyone would be covering him to hear him finally admit this, the day when all he really wanted to do was show off his new D.C. hotel, he would not answer Maria's question because he wanted to make a big deal out of the statement and say it when he thought the press would give him tons of free coverage as he gave a tour of the hotel. But that was the day the press finally had enough. Trump that day was all about playing games. He'd been so hateful and a liar about the birther situation for years, and on 9/16 he was all wrapped up in once more using it to his advantage:

      Yeah, but he took it back with the "your president" and air quotes later.

      Trump will never admit Obama is the legitimate president. I'm sure because he's BLACK.

      Trump's concession will be a 30 minutes informercial of "Am I not the greatest? I ran the best campaign ever.", then spending a lot of time blaming a laundry list of players whose fault it was they didn't win and "Watch Trump TV, coming soon". The last 15 seconds will be "Oh, yeah. Hillary Clinton is President." And then he'll walk off.

    Not surprisingly, Stephen doesn't like Alec's portrayal and doesn't think it's very funny.
