Saturday Night Live once again got after President Donald Trump in the cold open, this time with a black and white parody of “It’s A Wonderful Life” where he sees how much better everyone’s lives would have been if he had never become president.
With Trump (portrayed by Alec Baldwin) being conducted through his alternative life by the angel Clarence, Trump learns that Melania divorced him and lost her accent, his sons were successful without him (and Eric is slightly smarter — but not much) and Mike Pence followed his dream of becoming a DJ.
We also learn that Kellyanne Conway got her soul back from the devil.

Republicans are ‘spooked’ Trump will destroy GOP turnout with ‘intentional voter suppression’: conservative
Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, columnist Jennifer Rubin starts out by pointing out that President Trump recently admitted to "intentional voter suppression," citing a recent Post report on Trump's words.
"There is no nuance, no joke," Rubin writes, referring to Trump's words. "Republicans are firmly opposing free and fair elections — unless they do something about this."
Up until now, Trump and Republicans have been successful in implementing measures that deter voting, but they've usually disguised their efforts as fraud prevention.
"The irony, of course, is that Republicans are now spooked about absentee ballots and thereby risk losing out when their own voters cannot get to the polls (or face long lines) on Election Day," Rubin writes. "That is why many state and local Republican groups are pulling their hair out in response to Trump’s anti-absentee vote rhetoric."
Gov. Greg Abbott says Texas is investigating its high proportion of coronavirus tests coming back positive
The governor also said that testing is down statewide possibly because of the closure of some temporary testing sites created in July that targeted various coronavirus hotspots.
In response to Texas’ recently plummeting coronavirus testing numbers and heightened rate of people testing positive, Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday that state health officials were “investigating” the trend and working to increase the number of Texans being tested for coronavirus.
‘Michael Cohen is releasing the Kraken’: Memoir expected to be ‘October surprise’ for Trump campaign
President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen will publish his tell-all book about his experience working as the "fixer" to the self-described billionaire over decades and what it was like to be thrown under the bus. Slated to be out before Election Day, Cohen's stories are likely to be shocking revelations about the president as absentee ballots are dropping in mailboxes.
It was a piece of news that spread so quickly that it crashed Cohen's website for the book and sent many turning to Twitter for the foreward that he's already posted online.
