Alec Baldwin's Trump Gives Bannon a Proper Goodbye on Weekend Update

Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump in Saturday Night Live

"Well that's what the ad said you was looking for", he responds, referring to the Craigslist ads that Trump's campaign sends out to get folks to come to the rally in exchange for cash. He declared himself the true and only "tragic victim" of Charlottesville, complained "the media has treated me so unfairly by using my exact remarks", then read a small portion of them, of course not including his "both sides" comments.

Kenan Thompson played Maurice Symonette, the man who caught the public's attention by holding a "Blacks For Trump" sign behind the president at the Phoenix rally. He blames the media for reporting on everything he says, "even the bad ones".

"I asked the hard questions like, 'Which one is Afghanistan?'" he said.

Mr Baldwin's version of Trump didn't dwell on his media musings for almost as long, however. "They couldn't have. I figured it out myself".

"I moved on her like a b-tch, but I couldn't get there".

He also ribbed President Trump over Afghanistan saying: "They won't tell you about my accomplishments, but I've done so much".

Though Trump's Tuesday event could provide hours of satirical material, Weekend Update Summer Edition managed to find a little time to give Grim Reaper Steve Bannon a proper sendoff.

"Steve is going on to Breitbart. He'll be fighting the good fight against globalist cucks like my son-in-law, Jared", he said, to titters from the audience.

And to top it all off, Thursday brought some more great news: NBC has set a premiere date for its venerated sketch show, September 30, when Ryan Gosling will host and Jay-Z will serve as a musical guest.
