Dressed in a suit and tie, the 58-year-old actor took the stage for the cold opener that mocked the first presidential debate between him and Hillary Clinton. (RELATED: Alec Baldwin To Play Donald Trump On ‘Saturday Night Live’ This Season)
“Good evening, America,” Baldwin’s Trump said. “I am going to be so good tonight. I am going to be so calm and so presidential.”
“I’ve got a very presidential answer for this,” he said when asked a question by Lester Holt.
“Our jobs are fleeing this country. They’re going to Mexico. They’re going to Jina. I would stop that. If Hillary knew how, she would have done it already. Period. End of story. I won the debate, I stayed calm, just like I promised, and it is over. Goodnight Hofstra.”
When the actor playing Holt reminded him that there were 88 minutes still left in the debate, Baldwin’s Trump was stunned.
“My microphone is broken,” he said. “She broke it. With Obama. She and Obama stole my microphone. They took it to Kenya. They took my microphone to Kenya, and they broke it, and now it’s broken.”
“I have the best judgment and the best temperament,” he continued. “She’s the one with the bad temperament. She’s always screaming, she’s constantly lying, her hair is crazy, her face is completely orange except around the eyes where it’s white, and when she stops talking her mouth looks like a tiny little butthole.” (RELATED: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Had A Field Day With Hillary Clinton’s Health Problems)
