Kristen Wiig made her return to Saturday Night Live last night (November 19) for her second time as a host. Wiig, like many returning SNL cast members, brought back several of her recurring characters from her time on the show, including Mindy Elise Grayson and Sue the Surprise Lady, and brought along several surprise guests, including Steve Martin, Jason Sudeikis, and Will Forte. However, one person was not a fan of last night’s episode:
Unclear as to whether President-elect Trump was upset about … read more
â Alec Baldwin made his return as the president-elect on Saturday Night Live—a week after his conspicuous absence in a muted Cold Open—and it is again safe to assume that his performance did not go over well with the future occupant of the Oval Office, reports the AP. After a general praises Trump’s ”secret plan” to take out ISIS, Baldwin’s Donald Trump scurries over to his desk to frantically Google “What is ISIS?” Bowled over by the results, he proceeds to ask his BlackBerry, “Siri, … read more
It’s been a busy first few days, to say the least. Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live as President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday, November 19, and had a steady stream of visitors at his beck and call.
Kate McKinnon, who famously played Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign season, traded in one blonde wig for another to portray Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway. “Kellyanne, can I just say something?” Baldwin-as-Trump said at the start of the skit. “I just want to … read more
Using their freedom of speech. Celebrities including Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to fire back at Donald Trump after he tweeted on Saturday, November 19, that cast members of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton were being rude to Vice President-elect Mike Pence, and demanded that they apologize to his second-in-command. “Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing,” the 70-year-old real estate mogul tweeted. “This should … read more
Alec Baldwin channeled an out of his depth Donald Trump on his post-election return to “Saturday Night Live.”
The actor as the President-elect met with Kate McKinnon playing his bewildered campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, a military chief and an unemployed coal worker excited about Trump’s promises of getting his job back for the skit.
But each time they asked the future POTUS a question, he really didn’t know how to respond. There was a surprise appearance from former “SNL” cast member … read more

â Saturday Night Live called on host Dave Chappelle’s wit and Kate McKinnon’s “Hallelujah” for a thoughtful coda to a divisive election, reports the AP. Chappelle, claiming to be rusty after a decade out of the TV spotlight, proved eager to offer his take on Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, including protests that followed. “I haven’t seen white people this mad since the OJ (Simpson) verdict,” he said drolly, suggesting he would take a knee like Colin Kaepernick and let white people … read more
Reclusive comedian Dave Chappelle hosted Saturday Night Live last night (November 12) in the first episode of the show following the election of Donald Trump. Trump, who has been the main target of SNL’s ire for nearly a year (following a widely-panned episode where he hosted and danced to Drake’s “Hotline Bling”), was at the forefront of many of the sketches and musical performances of the evening, though Alec Baldwin was not in attendance.
Chappelle, who hosted (and famously quit) the legendary … read more

“I’m trying to shed the Donald Trump cloak,” the two-time Emmy winner, 58, said during an appearance on WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show, according to Inside Edition.
Baldwin added: “I’m not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy and they ask you to do that, most of the time, there’s some degree of appreciation, I think, involving … read more
I was actually happy when Saturday Night Live cast Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump at the beginning of the current season. While I have issues with Baldwin as a person, the truth is that I love him as an actor, and he’s one of America’s great impressionists. His Trump was dead-on, a total buffoon. There were a few problems though. One, Baldwin’s buffoonish impression was actually funny, and therefore somewhat likeable, which was bad news. And the biggest problem is that Baldwin only agreed to … read more

On Tuesday, the 30 Rock alum opened up about portraying the Celebrity Apprentice star during his appearance on WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show.

In regards to how he perfected his impression of the Trumpster, Baldwin revealed that his process included watching a lot of footage … read more
