'It is all nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. "Should be tested in courts, can't be legal?" he wrote on Sunday. Matt Damon also made an appearance again as Brett Kavanaugh, who is free to party as much as he likes now that he is not a Supreme Court Justice. Heidi Gardner plays Trump's fictional future wife Hernia. In the sketch, even Trump (Baldwin), appears happier imagining a version of the world where he's not in charge.

In the show's cold open on Saturday, Alec Baldwin returned to portray a Trump who wished he'd never become president. Stiller's Cohen exclaimed. "And I'll see you tomorrow at the opening of Trump Tower Moscow!"

Trump has hosted SNL twice before in 2004 and 2015.


Cohen replied to Trump's Twitter attacks in a speech given during his sentencing.

Clarence says Hillary Clinton won, because "in this reality all she had to do to win was visit Wisconsin once".

To which Kenan Thompson's angel responded, "Those are smiles".


Trump and SNL share a rocky relationship, with the President calling Baldwin's performance an agony for people forced to watch it. In September, Trump took time from his busy day to declare that the show was "no longer amusing", and in the past he even called for the iconic late night show to be cancelled for mocking him.

Now, in all fairness, Trump might have a point claiming that SNL was "one sided", since the show has not covered all of the positive outcomes that the President has inspired.

"You know, high school, in college, I remember having the epiphany of, 'wait a second we live in a country where comedians can mercilessly make fun of our president and I've felt this way for decades".


Trump declined to specifically address the sketch that was broadcast just one day prior, as well as a number of other jabs taken during the same episode - such as a reference to his current investigations completing "impeachment BINGO".
