Alec Baldwin reprised his role as President Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, and he took the opportunity to mock the commander in chief on several fronts, using the events of the past week as fodder.

As part of the show’s cold open, Baldwin’s Trump addressed a rally in “Harrass-burg,” Pennsylvania.
In a nod to rapper Eminem’s real-life freestyle rap last week in which he slammed Trump, Baldwin’s version of the commander in chief said, “Eminem apparently did a freestyle network on the BET network the other day, and he rapped some very nasty things about me, and very soon I’m going to release a response rap on the White Entertainment Network, HGT.”
Baldwin’s Trump also poked fun at Tennessee GOP senator Bob Corker, calling him a “midget.”
Baldwin’s Trump also made comments about “undoing everything Obama did,” like healthcare, as well as “ripping out all of the vegetables in Michelle Obama’s garden and planting McNuggets,” and donating Colts season tickets to lucky fans in Puerto Rico – though noting they’d have to fly themselves to Indiana and book their own hotel rooms because “at a certain point they have to start doing things for themselves.”
Also featuring prominently in the cold open was “SNL” cast member Beck Bennett’s impersonation of Vice President Mike Pence, who attends the wedding of two men but leaves at the urging of Baldwin’s Trump, because it does not align with “Double Corinthians’ view of marriage.”
Baldwin’s Trump also expresses to Bennett’s Pence that he is displeased that Starbucks would print “Happy Holidays” over “Merry Christmas” on its cups.
