Alec Baldwin returns to SNL as Trump to proclaim himself the real victim of Charlottesville
Actor Alec Baldwin returned as President Donald Trump to Saturday Night Live’s summer edition of Weekend Update on Thursday night to recreate the president’s bonkers Phoenix rally from earlier in the week.
Wearing sunglasses, Baldwin as Trump declared, “Now, a lot of people don’t know this, but you can damage your eyes when looking at an eclipse.”
He then quickly turned to the tragic violence in Charlottesville, proclaiming to the appreciative Phoenix crowd “There was a tragic victim that came out of Charlottesville — me!”
“I wanted to set the record straight about exactly what I said and I have the transcript right here,” he said as he pulled out a piece of paper and read, “I moved on her like a b*tch, but I couldn’t get there…” before stopping after realizing he was reading a transcript from his infamous Access Hollywood, tape.
He the touted his successes as president, bragging, “I’ve done so much. First off, last night I solved Afghanistan. Solved!”
