Alec Baldwin, Kate McKinnon re-create presidential debate for ‘Saturday Night Live’

NEW YORK, Oct. 2 (UPI) — Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon channeled presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in this weekend’s Season 42 premiere of Saturday Night Live.

“I think I’m going to be president. I mean, this man is clearly unfit to be commander-in-chief,” McKinnon’s gleeful Clinton boasted.

“Wrong!” Baldwin’s dour Trump shot back.

“He’s a bully…” Clinton went on.

“Shut up,” Trump interjected.

“He started the birther movement,” she added.

“You did,” he clarified.

“He says climate change is a hoax invented by China,” Clinton continued.

“It’s pronounced ‘Gina,'” Trump corrected.

“He hasn’t released his tax returns, which means he’s either not that rich…”


“… not that charitable…”


“… or he’s never paid taxes in his life.”


The faux debate — which featured Michael Che as exasperated moderator Lester Holt — also poked fun of Clinton’s eye-rolling, forced smiles and unrelenting ambition.

“Listen, America. I get it. You hate me. You hate my voice and you hate my face. Well, here’s a tip: If you never want to see my face again, elect me president and I swear to God I will lock myself in the Oval Office and not come out for four years. But if you don’t elect me, I will continue to run for president until the day I die. And I will never die,” she vowed.
