"Saturday Night Live" this week parodied one of the president's favorite Fox News shows — "Fox & Friends."
Actor Alec Baldwin returned to "SNL" as President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump defends indicted GOP congressman House to vote Thursday on holding Bannon in contempt Youngkin calls for investigation into Loudoun County School Board amid sexual assault allegations MORE calling into the show from the White House to get his "daily intelligence briefing" and to discuss the release of a controversial memo compiled by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee.
“I’m saving the economy, destroying [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] and right now getting my daily intelligence briefing … from you guys,” Baldwin says as Trump.
“Thanks so much. Your show is so great. Yuuuge ratings! Of course, not as big as the ratings for my State of the Union speech, which was watched by 10 billion people, including all of China. Now they say there’s only 7 billion people on Earth, so where do the other 3 billion come from? Illegals? I don’t know.”
Baldwin portrayed Trump in pajamas and still in bed, thanking the "Fox & Friends" hosts for their praise of his administration and tweeting about the show.
"But guys, this memo might be the greatest memo since the Declaration of Independence. I don't know, I haven't read either one of them. And [Rep.] Devin NunesDevin Gerald NunesSunday shows preview: Pelosi announces date for infrastructure vote; administration defends immigration policies LIVE COVERAGE: Ways and Means begins Day 2 on .5T package Biden faces unfinished mission of evacuating Americans MORE [R-Calif.], I love that guy, my sweet little house elf so close to earning his freedom. His memo proves that the FBI is biased and they have a history of this, folks."
The skit comes after Trump and House Intelligence Committee Republicans published a confidential memo that alleges federal law enforcement officials relied heavily on an opposition research dossier in their application for a warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Trump earlier Saturday tweeted that the memo "totally vindicates" him of any wrongdoing in the ongoing special counsel investigation of Russia's election interference.
