For this week’s Saturday Night Live cold open, Alec Baldwin returns as Donald Trump — headlining a MAGA rally in “Albacore,” meaning Albuquerque, with a stunning roster of SNL regulars and veterans. “New Mexicans,” he tells the cheering zombie-like supporters, “are my favorite Mexicans.”

Click and chuckle.
