On the heels of Trump’s unhinged Phoenix rally, Alec Baldwin made a triumphant return to SNL’s Weekend Update to discuss all of his most recent controversies (video below).
Baldwin hit Trump on the solar eclipse, the Charlottesville pro-white rally, the government shutdown, the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and his infamous and unpopular wall on the border with Mexico.
“The media has treated me so unfairly by using my exact remarks,” Baldwin said, mocking Trump’s lie by omission when “reciting exactly” his remarks regarding Charlottesville to prove he never equated the neo-Nazis with the counterprotestors. Unsurprisingly enough, Trump left out his most incriminating phrase.
At least Trump can find solace in the fact that a weary nation was able to smile tonight because of him—even if it was at his expense.
