SNL Donald Trump Alien Attack


“SNL” mocked Donald Trump fighting an alien attack from a far off planet. Alec Baldwin returned to impersonate the president. Watch the “Saturday Night Live” video below.

The premise was a bit like Independence Day, but the president came off as wholly unprepared to handle an alien attack, and thought two black women in the Army were actually the aliens. He also lost focus and talked about the NBC show “This Is Us,” Trump hotels, and aliens living in America.

This was Baldwin’s first time back as Trump in more than a month. In the last sketch in which he appeared as the president, Trump, accompanied by Steve Bannon dressed as the grim reaper, threatened a number of allies by saying, “Prepare to go to war.” It was reported earlier in the week that Baldwin will probably not portray Trump much longer on “SNL.” It remains to be seen, however, whether or not he’ll finish out the season’s half-dozen or so shows.

Every cold open this year has been politically based. Last week, “SNL” began with Attorney General Jeff Sessions as Forrest Gump, sitting at a bus stop and talking about his involvement with the Russians. After denying to other people at the bus stop that he spoke to the Russians, Sessions slowly but surely acknowledged that he and others in the administration held meetings with the Russian ambassador.

During the weeks that Baldwin hasn’t done his Trump impression, other “SNL” cold opens have begun with Melissa McCarthy impersonating Sean Spicer, for example. For the most part, though, the vast majority of “Saturday Night Live” episodes this season have kicked off with Trump and Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton. Before the election, the cold opens skewered Trump and the leaked audio of him talking offensively about women to Billy Bush, as well as focused on the three debates between him and Clinton. Watch the video below to see “SNL” spoofing Trump being he commander in chief during an aliens attack.
