Alec Baldwin returned to “Saturday Night Live” this week as President Donald Trump at a town hall full of voters who are starting to figure out that Trump’s policies are going to hurt them and their lives, but who still love Trump, no matter what.
One by one, voters talked about programs Trump’s budget would be taking away. One man said that the only reason his wife is able to live at home is because of the federal rehab program.
“Junked!” Trump replied. “We’re gonna get rid of it.”
He consoled the man that now his wife can live wherever she wants.
“You still love me, right?” Trump asked.
“I’m not sure,” the voter replied. “But I voted for you and you’re my president!”
“That’s why I came here, you people stand by me no matter what,” Trump said. “It’s like you found a finger in your chili but you still eat the chili cos you told everyone how much you love chili. It’s tremendous.”
A woman said her child is in an after school program (“Junked!” said Trump) and that she works two jobs for minimum wage (“Minimum wage, gone! Gone!” said Trump.) and she can’t afford a new house because her mortgage is underwater (“We’re getting rid of that, we’re getting rid of that,” he said).
“My mortgage?” she asked.
“No your house,” Trump replied. “Junked!”
But when he asked if she still loves him, the woman said, “You’re my president!”
“You guys are blowing my mind,” Trump said. “Keep eating that finger chili! I think I hear my helicopter right now.”

Disney heiress who went undercover to Disneyland ‘livid’ at conditions and pay
Heiress Abigail Disney went to one of her family's resorts to see conditions for workers herself and was disgusted by what she saw.
In comments to Yahoo News podcast "Through Her Eyes," Disney described how she went to Disneyland in California undercover and found that workers at the resort were treated poorly—and underpaid.
"Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, 'I don't know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people's garbage,'" said Disney.
Ex-Peru president wanted for corruption arrested in the US
Former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo was arrested in the United States Tuesday to face extradition to his home country on corruption charges, authorities in the South American nation said.
The 73-year-old is suspected of involvement in the sprawling Odebrecht scandal in which the construction giant paid hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes throughout the continent to secure huge public works contracts.
The Peruvian attorney general's office announced on Twitter that Toledo "was arrested this morning for extradition, in the United States."
Toledo has been formally charged with receiving a $20 million payment from Odebrecht to grant it the tender to build the Interoceanic Highway that links Peru with Brazil.
Comic-Con mines past for future hits on 50th edition
A smorgasbord of sequels, prequels and reunions from "Terminator" to "Game of Thrones" awaits thousands of misty-eyed comic book geeks and sci-fi nerds descending on San Diego this week for the world's largest celebration of pop culture fandom.
The 50th edition of Comic-Con International will see 135,000 cosplayers, bloggers, movie executives and humble fans pile into a sweaty convention center for glimpses of their heroes, in town to promote the next mega-hit films, TV shows and comic books.
This anniversary edition promises to be more nostalgia-laden than most -- among those expected to appear are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, who will soon reunite on screen for the first time since 1991's "Terminator 2" for Paramount's killer cyborg sequel "Dark Fate."
