Baldwin returns to SNL days after Trump called impression 'agony'

Trump not a fan of ‘Alex’ Baldwin’s ‘terrible’ impersonation

"My mentals are so high, but we have to respect the law", Baldwin-as-Trump-with his signature mastery of the president's facial expressions and lilting tone-said.

Actor Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week, portraying President TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out "subversion" at VA MORE sharing his varying policy ideas on gun control.

In a prepared statement, "Trump" talked gun control in the wake of the Parkland, FL, shooting.

On Friday, the leader of the free world took time away from sparking global trade wars to tweet: 'Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his awful impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. "But maybe we just take everyone's gun away".

Baldwin's Trump also joked about reports that he calls Attorney General Jeff Sessions "Mr. Magoo," the elderly character who bumbles through unsafe situations because of poor eyesight, behind the scenes, with Kate Mckinnon reprising her role as Sessions. "I can only run into so many schools and save everybody".

However, following the actual statements the president has made on the issue lately, Baldwin's Trump quickly changed his mind, too. If I have to make America's schools safe all by myself, I will.

Baldwin's Trump also pointed out that America needs to heal and is now "one of the best" but "could do better", noting he said he was going to run the country like a business and comparing his ruling to that of a "waffle house at 2 a.m." where employees just walk out during their shifts. "They've got flying cars in Wakanda", Baldwin said.

What did you think of SNL's latest Trump-centric cold open? Che said. "You know, that once happened to me". Wakanda is laughing at us.
