Alec Baldwin returns as Trump to talk G-20, Mueller, Putin on SNL

Alec Baldwin reprised his role as President Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” making his first appearance on the sketch comedy show since he was arrested after a dispute over a parking spot, according to authorities in New York City. 

The actor appeared in SNL’s opening sketch, playing Trump standing on a balcony at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Argentina and worrying about the special counsel’s investigation and his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Kate McKinnon appeared as Rudy Giuliani, the president’s attorney in the Russia investigation, and Ben Stiller also returned to the show to play former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

{mosads}”I’m sad you’re going to prison, Michael. You were like a son to me,” Baldwin’s Trump said.

“Then why’d you make me do so much illegal stuff?” Stiller’s Cohen asked.

“Because you were like a son to me,” Baldwin responded.

“I haven’t been this upset since I flipped out over that parking space,” he added, alluding to the actor’s legal troubles.

Cohen reached a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller and pleaded guilty last Thursday to lying to Congress about his knowledge of negotiations for a Trump Tower Moscow.

Trump on SNL then interacted with Putin, played by Beck Bennett, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, played for Fred Armisen. Baldwin portrayed a jealous Trump recalling the other two leaders’ warm embrace at the G-20.

“I’m sorry, it’s just I can’t believe you and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia had that whole handshake yesterday,” Trump said.

Putin and the Saudi crown prince greeted each other with a high five when they met in Argentina for the Group of 20 summit on Friday.
