Alec Baldwin reprised his parody of President Donald Trump in a sketch depicting Trump’s raucous Phoenix, Arizona, rally. Baldwin’s Trump opened the sketch lamenting about the fallout surrounding the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“As we all know, there was a tragic victim that came out of Charlottesville – me,” Baldwin quipped. “Folks, the media has treated me so unfairly by reporting my entire remarks, even the bad ones.”
Baldwin’s caricature of Trump then tore into “the dishonest media” that reported on his scripted speech of the US’s future strategy for Afghanistan.
“They won’t tell you about my accomplishments, but I’ve done so much. First off, last night, I solved Afghanistan.”
“I sat down with our military, we looked at the map, and I asked the hard questions like: which one is Afghanistan,” Baldwin said. “Is that blue thing an ocean?”
Baldwin also reenacted one of Trump’s notorious chants:
“What do we want,” Baldwin asked.
“The wall,” the mock crowd chanted.
“Who’s going to pay for it,” Baldwin asked again.
“Mexico,” the mock crowd chanted back.
“That’s right, you are, the American taxpayer,” Baldwin said.
