SNL Mocks Trump’s Post-Comey Interview With Lester Holt: ‘Are You Trolling Us?’
Saturday Night Live kicked off tonight’s show by bringing back Alec Baldwin‘s impression of Donald Trump, and he lampooned the president’s interview with Lester Holt after the firing of James Comey.
“Holt” grilled “Trump” on everything from his decision to fire the FBI director, to the shifting stories put forth by the White House staff. “Trump” ends up admitting that he fired Comey over the Russia investigation, which leaves “Holt” wondering if he actually caught Trump’s confession to obstruction of justice.
The answer was no, because as Holt’s producers tell him, “absolutely nothing matters.”
The interview went on to touch Trump’s extensive Time Magazine profile, and the tweet where Trump threatened Comey by warning him of “tapes” from their conversations together. As he went over the president’s negative optics throughout the week, Holt eventually straight up asks Trump “are you trolling us?”
“Can you stop and think about the every single day it’s something nuts. Your presidency is like the craziest show on TV, and it’s on 24 hours a day, and we can’t keep up.”
“Too bad,” said Trump, “because it the shows gonna run for eight years, okay? Even though it should have been canceled months ago, but don’t worry. We have plenty of fun plot twists coming up and favorite characters will be coming back.
