Alec Baldwin didn’t disappoint as he hilariously channeled Donald Trump for the “Saturday Night Live” season opener.
The “30 Rock” actor was almost indistinguishable from the GOP nominee as he squared up to Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton for a spoof presidential debate.
With Michael Che playing the part of moderator Lester Holt, the sniffling Baldwin as Trump characteristically blustered his way through the questions.
He lobbed out conspiracy theories, saying, “They took my microphone to Kenya and they broke it and now it’s broken.” Baldwin also boasted about his “calm” and “presidential” style and insulted TV personality Rosie O’Donnell. So it was a fairly accurate portrayal of Monday night’s actual debate after all.
Check it out in the clip above.
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
