Yesterday’s Saturday Night Live opening saw Alec Baldwin return to the stage as Donald Trump, along with Kate McKinnon reprising her role as Hillary Clinton. Parodying the Town Hall debate from last week, Cecily Strong playing Martha Raddatz introduces the segment by hailing it the “worst ever presidential debate” as she wearily takes a shot with Alex Moffat as Anderson Cooper to get through the “nightmare” event. The two candidates begin by dramatically dancing around each other and avoiding the cordial handshake. Baldwin reenacts the GOP nominee’s awkward gestures and speech in a spot-on impression, as he creepily tiptoes around McKinnon on stage in a Jaws-like manner. Internet meme sensation Ken Bone also makes an appearance and lightens up the mood with a cheerful dance. Watch the full clip above.
