Alec Baldwin Plays Both Donald Trump And Bill O’Reilly On ‘SNL’ [VIDEO]
Alec Baldwin appeared on Saturday Night Live as both Donald Trump and Bill O’Reilly last night.
The show returned after a three-week break with host Louis C.K. Baldwin appeared first in the show’s cold open and then in another sketch as both the president and O’Reilly.
The cold open featured Baldwin’s Trump speaking to supporters from Kentucky.
“As president, I promise I’m going to do everything I can to make sure you people work in coal for the rest of your lives, and your kids will work in coal, and your grandkids,” he told one cast member. “It’s going to be incredible.”
He added, “In Trump’s America, men work in two places – coal mines and Goldman Sachs.”
The next sketch opened with Baldwin’s O’Reilly asking an apprehensive reporter (Cecily Strong) how Susan Rice, national security adviser to former President Barack Obama, responded to allegations of misconduct.
“So you asked her, point blank, and she said …?” Baldwin asked.
“No,” Strong replied.
“OK, but when she said no, what was her vibe?” he asked, later adding, “Yeah, like when she said no, did her eyes say yes? Sometimes they’ll do that.”
Baldwin played both O’Reilly and Trump in one sketch, talking about the President’s praise of TV personality.
“Thank you for coming to my defense last week even though no one asked you to,” Baldwin-as-O’Reilly said, referring to Trump’s real-life comments defending O’Reilly. “And you even went as far as saying, quote, ‘Bill O’Reilly did nothing wrong.'”
“That’s correct,” Baldwin’s Trump replied.
“That’s based upon …?” “O’Reilly” asked.
“A hunch, just a loose hunch,” “Trump” said.
