Alec Baldwin finally returned as Donald Trump in a skit for the summer edition of Weekend Update, spoofing the president’s Arizona rally.

I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump!

Recently, Saturday Night Live has been running what they call Weekend Update: Summer Edition. For the finale until the main series comes back this fall, they had a very special guest appear for the cold open. It was none other than Alec Baldwin reprising his Emmy-nominated role as Donald Trump!

The skit spoofs the rally Trump held in Arizona, and it utterly destroys the commander-in-chief. Baldwin’s Trump complains that the media has been treating him unfairly in the wake of Charlottesville. “There was a tragic victim that came out of Charlottesville… me!”

In the video, Baldwin does Trump as he does best, completely destroying the Donald for about five minutes straight. Things culminate with Trump giving Steve Bannon a proper farewell, at which point the Grim Reaper himself steps up to the podium!

All the while, the “one black guy” in the crowd (played by Kenan Thompson) reveals that he was paid to be there, and coordinates with a person off-camera as to when to raise his signs.
