McKinnon played Hillary Clinton in previous weeks. “It was good,” said Pence with a straight face. After a general enters the office and says he’s looking forward to hearing about Trump’s secret plan to fight ISIS, Baldwin/Trump returns to his desk, trying not to panic, and Googles: “What is ISIS?” He then tries to get help from the Siri function on his phone. “I heard you went to see Hamilton, how was that?” Baldwin/Trump asks. The host was former SNLer and Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig with musical guests The xx. “I got a free lecture.”

“It is a totally one-sided, biased show — nothing funny at all. “I just want to thank you for all you’ve done, I wouldn’t be president without you,” Baldwin/Trump told McKinnon/Conway. I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live for the first time since the U.S. She didn’t do anything,” Baldwin/Trump says. Trump himself says he caught parts of SNL. The vice-president-elect was booed and the cast directed a statement to him about diversity and equality at the end of the Broadway show. Equal time for us?—
In a last-minute addition to the script, SNL also got in a jab about Mike Pence attending the musical Hamilton Friday. On Sunday he tweeted his dislike for it — again. Hamilton cast’s diversity message to Mike Pence sets off social media storm
