Oscar-nominated actor Alec Baldwin is back at his new weekend gig: cutting portrayals of Donald Trump on the President's least favorite show, Saturday Night Live.

In the February 4 episode's cold open, Baldwin-as-Trump starts by asking a staffer, "How do you like working at the White House? Are your parents proud?"

"I tell them I work at Applebee's," the staffer responds.

From there, Baldwin and the SNL writers skewer Trump on a handful of his recent greatest hits, including his unexpected phone fight with the Prime Minister of long-time U.S. ally, Australia; his misunderstanding of Frederick Douglass' place in history; his administration's decision to sidestep a mention of the Jewish loss of life in the Holocaust, and more.

With Steve Bannon depicted as the Grim Reaper by his side, Baldwin hit two sore spots at once: Referencing the "Bowling Green Massacre," a non-existent terrorist attack mentioned as fact by Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, he said, "So many people died, but really they're the lucky ones. They don't have to see how bad The Apprentice has gotten."
