The Real Donald Trump Is as Flustered as Alec Baldwin’s Over SNL
Don’t say Donald Trump never saved any American jobs, because Alec Baldwin and Jason Sudeikis both returned to Saturday Night Live last night. The show’s cold open found Baldwin as Trump holding court at his golf course, receiving visitors like Mitt Romney (Sudeikis) and Mike Pence (Beck Bennett).
Stressed and out of his depth, SNL’s Trump is ready to throw his campaign promises out the window. He has to Google “ISIS.” But he did manage to ask Pence whether he enjoyed Hamilton. “It was good, I got a free lecture,” Pence replied.
I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?

Of course, most of SNL’s critics complain its producers gave Trump a bonanza of free exposure already when they invited him to host the show back in November 2015. The equal-time rule only applies to candidates—maybe the president-elect should Google the name of the guy who killed the Fairness Doctrine.
