Alec Baldwin is an Oscar nominee with a miles-long resume in major motion pictures — but it might be time for him to admit his calling: regular cast member on Saturday Night Live. Because Baldwin was back yet again on the Dec. 17 episode to reprise his impression of President-elect Donald Trump.
In the episode’s cold open, Baldwin and Kate McKinnon, as Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, discuss real-world issues, like Trump’s recent pick for Energy Secretary, Rick Perry. “I saw him on Dancing With the Stars. He has so much energy. It’s just unpresidented.”
Watch the clip below.
The skit also touched on Trump’s recent “Thank You” tour )”I felt an obligation to thank all my supporters by standing in front of them while they cheered for me”) and the abbreviated list of celebrities willing to perform at his inauguration (“So many great names here. I love them both”).
Their conversation is interrupted by a shirtless Beck Bennett as Vladimir Putin, who comes to deliver an Elf on the Shelf that is almost certainly a spyware vehicle. Bennett stays to chat with Trump’s choice for Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson — an unexpected cameo by John Goodman, and a sick burn on Tillerson’s suggested ties to Russia.
Live from New York, it’s another sketch that Trump will definitely not enjoy.
