Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump Meets Jason Sudeikis’ Mitt Romney in SNL Skit
Alec Baldwin finally returned as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, appearing in an opening skit about the president-elect figuring out his new responsibilities.
The actor recently hinted that he wasn’t sure he would come back as Trump on SNL, so his appearance was definitely a surprise on Saturday night. In addition to Baldwin, Jason Sudeikis also stopped by the show to reprise his role of former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
It was a timely nod to the former Massachusetts governor, who met with the president-elect in New Jersey on Saturday, presumeably to mend any lingering wounds following their high-profile war of words. SNL‘s version of the event, however, envisioned a less amicable meeting between Trump and Romney.
“This isn’t going to work, is it?” Sudeikis says as Romeny following a long, awkward handshake.
“I don’t think so,” Baldwin’s Trump replies.
The real president-elect wasn’t exactly happy about the skit and took to Twitter to blast the show for being biased.
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?

Baldwin responded to Trump in a tweet, saying he should try to be president now that the election is over.
Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That's pretty much it.

Considering that Trump did host an episode of SNL last November, he may want to rethink calling out the series for not giving him a fair shot.
