Following this past week’s final Presidential debate, Alec Baldwin returned as Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” for one last parody debate with Kate McKinnon‘s Hillary Clinton. Baldwin’s performance sent Trump into a raging tweet storm about his depiction on “SNL” earlier this week, so the duo’s final “debate” had quite a lot to live up to.
Host Tom Hanks took on the role of FOX News anchor Chris Wallace, musing over the trilogy of debates. “Tonight is gonna be like the third ‘Lord of the Rings’ movie. You don’t want to watch, but hey, you’ve gotten this far.”
If you do want to watch this parody, though, you can do so above.
Baldwin went in on Trump’s worst comments about women and not meeting with the Mexican President. He continued going after Trump’s countless sniffles, and his confusion over foreign policy, going on a tangent about Iraq and Iran. “Iran should write us a letter of thank you because Iran is taking Iraq and we’re going to Mosul and Iran’s going to write us a letter of, listen. Aleppo is a disaster and Iran is Iraq — sniff –and ISIS –“
Hanks’ Wallace interjected, stopping Baldwin’s Trump, who said: “I don’t know if you can tell, but I was really spinning out of control.”
McKinnon’s Clinton was played with her usual over-the-top stoic meets bubbly attitude, cracking delightfully on Baldwin’s Trump as someone whose face looked like birth control. McKinnon’s Clinton also avoided e-mails, calling Hanks’ Wallace “cute” for trying to ask.
To Trump’s comments on having respect for women, the camera panned out to entire planet laughing in unison. “Settle down, settle down, entire planet, settle down,” said Hanks’ Wallace. Baldwin took a sharp shot at his own brother after Stephen Baldwin expressed disappointment over Alec Baldwin‘s performance.
The skit closed out with Baldwin’s Trump blaming the media for portraying him dishonestly, and Hillary Clinton asking America: “Who do you want in the White House? A Republican, or Donald Trump?
