Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live as Donald Trump Saturday night, and he started things off at Paul Manafort’s apartment.
“You’re so so screwed it’s a shame you’re going to prison, because I was about to give you a huuuuge tax break,” Baldwin told the fake Manafort (played by Alex Moffat), referring to news earlier this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election resulted in indictments for President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, on felony charges of conspiracy against the United States and other counts, as well as a guilty plea by former adviser George Papadopoulos to interactions between Trump campaign associates and Russian intermediaries during the campaign.
Baldwin, as Trump, joked that Manafort would need a shiv in prison “because of all the things I’ve said about certain ethnic groups.”
The duo proceeded to shower together, which Trump insisted on. “I brought you into the shower to make sure you weren’t wearing a wire Paul, we’re going to do this ‘Gone Girl’ style,” Baldwin joked. “Mr. President, I would never do that,” Manafort said, to which Trump replied, “That’s what she said. Speaking of which, what an idiot that Harvey Weinstein is. He could have gotten away with all of it if he’d gotten himself elected president.”
