'SNL': Tina Fey Returns to Mock Sarah Palin for Donald Trump Endorsement

"I wanted to take a break from my full-time career of writing things on Facebook to fly down here and lend my support to the next president, Donald J. Trump."

Tina Fey gave her fans what they were hoping for all week. 

Fey returned to Saturday Night Live to once again play former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on the heels of the political commentator's endorsement of Donald Trump. 

Fey appeared as Palin in the cold open alongside the GOP presidential candidate, played by fellow SNL veteran Darrell Hammond.

"I wanted to take a break from my full-time career of writing things on Facebook to fly down here and lend my support to the next president, Donald J. Trump," Fey's Palin said. "I'm here because we Americans are strugglin', we've lost our jobs at the factory or our reality show about Alaska." 

Hammond's Trump called Palin the "total package — smart, legs and yelling."

Fey's Palin then went into a long, rhyming rant, not unlike the one the actual Palin went on during her endorsement speech. 

"I'm here for all you teachers and teamsters, you farmers and charmers, whether you're a mom and two broke girls or three men and a baby or a rock in roller, Holy Roller pushing stroller, pro bowler with an abscessed molar," she said. 

Following the rant, Hammond's Trump looked dead at the camera: "She's a firecracker. She's a real pistol. She's crazy, isn't she?"

"I hope nobody's allergic to nuts, because we got a big one here," he added. "She sounds like a greeting card from a Chinese dollar store." 

In an aside, the Palin character admitted Trump shouldn't be president: "I'm just here because he promised me a spot in his Cabinet. And I belong in a cabinet because I'm full of spice and I got a great rack."
