Saturday Night Live is back this Saturday night, and it is better than ever!
This week, the show returned to lampooning Donald Trump, as well as vice president Mike Pence for leaving a Colts game when players from the San Francisco 49er knelt during the National Anthem.
Alec Baldwin’s Trump also made fun of Sen. Bob Corker, Trump’s tax plan and Rex Tillerson possibly calling him a “moron.”
At a rally in “Harrass-burg,” Pennsylvania, Trump addresses his destruction of President Obama’s legacy, from sabotaging Obamacare, to “ripping out all the vegetables in Michelle Obama’s garden.” Then the NFL protests were addressed.
Mike Pence is shown briefly at a Pacers game with “Mother,” then he quickly, at the behest of Trump, leaves when a single player protests.
Trump says Pence’s Colts season tickets are getting donated to Puerto Rico, the winners just have to fly themselves to Indianapolis because at some point, “they need to do something for themselves.”
Soon Trump’s “rally” turns into a stand-up routine playing to his base.
Trump goes down the checklist of every little thing that matters to his followers, like whether a Starbucks cup says “happy holidays” or “Merry Christmas” in October, rather than the systematic oppression of black Americans or the ever-widening inequality gap.
If anything, it seemed like a more believable, somewhat exaggerated version of Trump.
