Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

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.”

The skit is a merciless takedown of Trump supporters.Cecily Strong comes up to the stage with a misspelled T-shirt, babbling about the “deep state lizard conspiracy” that includes “the CIA, the FBI, the M-I-C, the K-E-Y, and the M-O-U-S-E.” Mikey Day is a member of “Bikers For Trump” (a real group), and warns that if Trump is impeached, “we’re gonna RIDE.” And there are a couple of special SNL cameos, too.

Click and chuckle.
