This week’s Saturday Night Live opened with a special news alert from President Donald Trump’s favorite news network.
“Outnumbered is the title of the show, and also how I feel here at Fox News,” Leslie Jones, as host Harris Faulkner, said at the top of the sketch before tossing to Alec Baldwin’s Trump, who was holding his press conference with Baltic leaders.
“Let’s make it quick, because I have a trade war to escalate,” the president began. He then read a prepared statement just to prove that he could.
“First up, a big congratulations to Vladimir Putin,” Trump said. “He won a great, great, very transparent victory in the Russian election. Fantastic job, Putin. Even though no one has ever been tougher on Russia than I am, including Hitler.”
When one of his fellow world leaders began to speak, we got a glimpse inside Trump’s head. “Oh my god, I am already so bored,” we heard his inner monologue say. “I wish I was watching Roseanne, how great is that show? Roseanne loves me. She is like a good Rosie O’Donnell.”
Ultimately, SNL’s Trump took more questions than the actual president did at his real press conference this week, at one point mistaking the “caravan” of immigrants heading towards the U.S. for the plot of Max Max: Fury Road.
“Here is the thing that no one else is saying and I’m the only one who’s willing to actually say this,” Baldwin’s Trump concluded. “I don’t care about America, OK? This whole presidency is a four-year cash grab and admitting that will probably get me four more years, but I do not care about any of you.”
