Alec Baldwin Returns as Trump on 'SNL' to Pick Top Advisor in 'America's Next Top Model'-Style Elimination Ceremony
Host Jimmy Fallon appeared as Ivanka Trump's husband Jared Kushner competing against a hooded, skeletal Steve Bannon.
Alec Baldwin returned as President Donald Trump on this week's installment of Saturday Night Live.
The episode made history as the first in the long-running sketch comedy series to broadcast live on both coasts.
Baldwin reprised his role as Trump, while Beck Bennett appeared beside him in the oval office as Vice President Mike Pence. Baldwin’s Trump ruminated on his first 100 days in office and his list of accomplishments. “Hard to keep track of it all,” he said.
“Nominated Neil Gorsuch,” Bennett posited dryly.
Baldwin's Trump then called for his advisors to enter: Steve Bannon, in the form of the Grim Reaper, and his "little kush ball,” Jared Kushner, played by host Jimmy Fallon in sunglasses and a bulletproof vest.
In a spoof of America's Nest Top Model as well as Trump's former NBC reality show The Apprentice, Baldwin kicked one of his advisors out of the oval office to “join Kellyanne Conway in the basement.”
He then presented a glamour shot of Fallon's Kushner, announcing him as winner, while Bannon’s skeletal form was taken “back to hell.”
Fallon's Kushner then took his place behind the Oval Office desk as Baldwin's Trump made his way to “his desk," a much smaller version with an expandable, colorful toy ball.
