Alec Baldwin Mocks Donald Trump Video Scandal On ‘SNL’ [VIDEO]
This week’s Saturday Night Live episode took aim at the scandal surrounding the release of Donald Trump‘s lewd video. In addition to Hamilton writer and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, another celebrity took a jab at the candidate, actor Alec Baldwin. Baldwin played the role of Trump as he did last week in a satiric take on a CNN interview.
Baldwin addressed the controversial 2005 video tape where Trump made lewd comments about women. On the tape Trump can be heard telling former Access Hollywood host Billy Bush:
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.Grab ’em by the p–sy.”
In the SNL skit, Baldwin portrays Trump owning his behavior, saying that he made the comments to “look cool” and “impress Billy Bush,” and that the people who criticize him are “losers.” Then, the video switches to Hillary Clinton‘s campaign headquarters where a party is raging in celebration of Trump’s leaked tape.
