Alec Baldwin did it again. He took the Saturday Night Live stage last night and brought the house down. It wasn’t his now legendary impersonation of the President that people are talking about, however – although he did deliver another hilarious turn as Trump. It was his take on a certain Fox News show host that has everyone buzzing.
Halfway into the show, fans were treated to an edition of The O’Reilly Factor, hosted by Baldwin-as-Bill O’Reilly, and the skit has been blowing up social media today.
O’Reilly’s had a terrible week. Over 60 advertisers have pulled their ads from his show in the wake of the bombshell sexual harassment revelations published last weekend in the New York Times.
He has yet to address the matter on his show, but SNL has taken care of that for him:
Well played, Mr. Baldwin.
