Alec Baldwin recently announced that he would not play Donald Trump “much longer,” but fortunately he has not hung up the wig yet. On this week’s Saturday Night Live, Baldwin returned as the president, this time in the not-too-distant future.
The year is 2018 and an alien race has invaded earth. “Now here’s the deal,” Trump says in the sketch. “We are going to beat these aliens because we have got the best military, but we don’t win anymore. And the aliens are laughing at us. They’re killing us and they’re laughing at us.”
Trump has a solution, though. “Bring coal back. We’re going to have so much coal you’re going to say, ‘Where did all this coal come from? I never knew there could be so much coal.’”
The aliens arrive and demand to meet our leader, and to their relief, they discover it’s Trump. “Really? This is going to be so easy!” Watch the clip for more.
