Alec Baldwin dissed The Donald and longtime Trump-supporter Stephen Baldwin (yup, Alec‘s brother) in his latest turn as Donald Trump on SNL.
Tom Hanks, who hosted the show, portrayed debate moderator Chris Wallace, and Kate McKinnon scored again as Hillary Clinton.
“She can brag about her resume, but I’m the one who has got all the heavy hitters supporting me,” Baldwin spoofed. “I’ve got the cream of the crop. I’ve got Sarah Palin. I’ve got Chachi. And get this, I’ve even got the best Baldwin brother … (dramatic pause) … Stephen Baldwin.”
“What do I think about Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of Trump and ‘SNL’ and all they’re doing?” bro Stephen Baldwin seethed to CBS News last week. “I don’t think it’s very funny. I don’t think there’s anything funny about this election.”
On Saturday evening, a few hours before SNL aired, Stephen Baldwin tagged SNL‘s Twitter account when he tweeted “John 15:19 @ncbsnl.”
John 15:19 reads: “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
In their latest skit, McKinnon and Baldwin poked fun at the final debate’s interesting phrases such as “bad hombres” and “nasty woman.” McKinnon’s Clinton reacted to Trump’s “bad hombres” remark by exclaiming she “got a Bingo” while pulling out a board filled with some of Trump’s famous lines.
But when asked by Hanks’ Wallace about her campaign’s hacked emails, McKinnon mocked Clinton’s ability to pivot away from the issue.
“So you’re just never going to answer a question about your email?” Hanks asked.
“No, but it was very cute to watch you try,” McKinnon responded.
In their closing remarks, McKinnon said, “Americans have an important decision to make. Between the two of us, who do you choose to be your president, the Republican, or Donald Trump.”
Baldwin said, “On November 9, make sure to check out Trump TV. You’re going to hate it.”
