See Alec Baldwin Return to ‘SNL’ as Overwhelmed Donald Trump

Jason Sudeikis reprises role of Mitt Romney for cold open where President-elect must make good on huge campaign promises

Alec Baldwin, as Donald Trump, returned to Saturday Night Live for a cold open where the overwhelmed President-elect is now left with having to make good on his huge campaign promises.

As his remorseful campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, played by Kate McKinnon, brings military leaders and GOP backers to the Trump-owned Bedminster golf club in New Jersey, “Trump” is now faced with revealing his “secret plan” for defeating ISIS – “Google, what is ISIS?” he types into his laptop – and ensuring “all” the coal workers go back to the mines.

A stressed-out “Trump” repeats his favorite mantra, “Big beautiful boobs in buildings.”

Baldwin isn’t the only actor here reprising his SNL role: Former cast member Jason Sudeikis returns to play Trump’s campaign trail critic-turned-potential advisor Mitt Romney, who Sudeikis portrayed four years ago during the 2012 presidential elections.

“Trump” and “Romney” share a long, awkward handshake before realizing “this isn’t going to work out” and parting ways.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence, played by Beck Bennett, then arrives to tell Trump he got a “free lecture” while attending Hamilton on Broadway. After Trump flip-flops on campaign promises like deporting illegal immigrants, vanquishing Obamacare and prosecuting Hillary Clinton, a frazzled Trump asks Pence, “Mike, you’re gonna do everything, right?”

President-elect Trump’s cabinet will be filled with deplorables. Watch here.
