SNL” mocked Donald Trump talking to regular people in Kentucky about jobs and their healthcare. Basically, everything they asked about he said he was getting rid of. After nearly a month off, Alec Baldwin returned to play the president. Watch the “Saturday Night Live” video below.

As Gossip Cop has previously noted, virtually every cold open this season has focused on Trump. Before the election, Baldwin skewered Trump debating Hillary Clinton, and having to explain and apologize for the leaked audio of him making offensive remarks about women to Billy Bush. After winning the presidency, other sketches have had Trump being visited by Vladimir Putin before Christmas, as well as the commander-in-chief sitting in the Oval office with Steve Bannon (as the grim reaper) and telling allies, “Prepare to go to war.” The last cold open with Baldwin as Trump spoofed Independence Day, with the president having to do battle with aliens. For the most part, the jokes in which Trump mistook two black servicewomen for aliens fell flat. The president was also poked fun of in that skit for losing focus and talking about his hotels and illegal aliens living in the U.S.

Watch the video below to see “SNL” spoofing Trump for trying to talk to regular people about jobs, healthcare, and other issues important to them.
