In the midst of an alien invasion in the cold open for NBC’s Saturday Night Live, a group of armed service men and women gather on the eve of battle, only to be giving an inspirational speech from Baldwin’s Trump.
“The aliens are laughing at us,” he says. “They’re killing us and laughing at us.”
He goes on to tell them his plan: “Here’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to bring coal back. You won’t believe how much coal we’re going to have. You’ll say, ‘I never knew there could be so much coal!'”
When told that the aliens had just vaporized the entire state of California, he responds, “So I won the popular vote?”
Told everyone in California is dead, Baldwin’s Trump seems to only care about one man: Arnold Schwarzenegger, with whom he had recently been feuding on Twitter.
As the explosions start coming down and the aliens get closer, Baldwin’s Trump insists, “They’ve been coming here for hundreds of years.” He then points at castmember Lesley Jones and says, “There’s one!”
The aliens, green of skin and carrying huge guns, finally arrive, only to have Baldwin’s Trump immediately abdicate command to Kenan Thompson’s general character.
Baldwin was absent on last week’s episode, when Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer served as host. His last appearance on SNL was a Feb. 11 hosting stint.
