Alec Baldwin returned to “Saturday Night Live” for this weekend’s cold open, reprising his Donald Trump impression for a sketch in which he chats with Vice President-elect Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) about his disastrous trip to Broadway to watch “Hamilton”, noting that Pence is “the reason I’ll never be impeached.”
Then, Trump receives another visitor: one-time Republican candidate Mitt Romney (former cast-member Jason Sudeikis), who lends his support to Trump until they both realize “this isn’t going to work, is it?”
The sketch sees Trump being reminded of his more outlandish campaign promises and then quickly reversing his positions when he realizes how much work they’ll be.
While the studio audience seemed to find the sketch hilarious, one viewer didn’t find anything to laugh at: Donald J. Trump himself, who took to Twitter to slam the show.
“I watched parts of ‘Saturday Night Live’ last night,” wrote the thin-skinned president-elect. “It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?”
Baldwin couldn’t resist responding, and tweeted a reply: “Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time,” writes Baldwin. “Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That’s pretty much it.”
“Saturday Night Live” airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global; you can also watch full episodes online.
