"Yes, this is real life. This is really happening," Baldwin's Trump said, addressing the crowd from behind a podium.

Saturday Night Live returned from its winter holiday break on Saturday to poke fun at the recent news surrounding President-elect Donald Trump and the recently released, unverified Russian reports that featured such claims as Trump asking prostitutes to perform "golden showers" and his first press conference in nearly half a year.

In SNL's cold open, Alec Baldwin as Trump stood at a podium and addressed the crowd. "Yes, this is real life, this is really happening," he said.

As the press conference continued, he boasted about his upcoming inauguration and the acts performing: "Hold onto your tits and bits because we have got 3 Doors Down and the Rockette with the least amount of money in her savings."

He also took questions from the audience, who wanted to address the "golden shower" claims. "I am not talking about the pee pee," Baldwin's Trump said. "It wasn’t as cool as it sounds."

Despite his protestation, he continued with the urine innuendo. "I am going to bring back a thick stream of jobs. This country will be literally showered in jobs. I am a whiz at jobs," he said. Baldwin’s Trump then pointed to the crowd to see who was “in” for his plan. “You’re in, you’re in, you’re in,” he said, running the words together.

He then introduced Steve Harvey (portrayed by Kenan Thompson), who asked if it “bodes well for our government” for him to be there, eliciting a buzzer and three large X’s, a la a wrong answer on Family Feud.
