Alec Baldwin returns to Saturday Night Live to mock Trump’s crude comments

Alec Baldwin returned to U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live this weekend (08Oct16) to mock presidential candidate Donald Trump over his latest controversy.
The 30 Rock actor debuted his impression of the Republican nominee on last week’s (01Oct16) episode of the sketch show, which parodied the first U.S. presidential debate between Trump and his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
Baldwin was invited back on Saturday to reprise his role as Trump for the opening segment, in which he pretended to react to the recently-leaked audio recording of the real estate mogul and reality star-turned-politician, who was caught on tape in 2005 discussing a failed attempt to seduce a married woman with TV presenter Billy Bush.
In the old footage, Trump also claimed his celebrity enables him to get away with inappropriate behaviour with women he’s attracted to: “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he boasted, adding, “Grab them by the p**sy, you can do anything.”
Responding to the remarks as Trump on SNL, Baldwin said, “I was trying to look cool. What normal red-blooded American doesn’t want to impress the Billy Bush…”
The actor, still in character, then declared he would “never” apologise, and continued, “Listen, women if you’d just give me a chance, I could prove to you that I could do a whole lot more than just grab it. I can also bop it, twist it and pull it.”
Baldwin’s 30 Rock co-star Tina Fey also made a surprise appearance alongside fellow former SNL regular Jimmy Fallon, with the pair portraying two undecided female voters during the show’s Weekend Update skit.
However, Fey broke character towards the end of the segment to poke fun at The Tonight Show host Fallon for his soft interview with Trump in September (16), when the White House hopeful allowed the presenter to mess up his hair.
“You love Trump,” she told Fallon. “You’re always like, ‘Oh, his hair’s real, ya know.'”
