It has been a while, but Alec Baldwin returned to SNL once more as Donald Trump this week. This time Trump was up against alien foes, while Scarlett Johansson hosted along with musical guest Lorde.
Cold Open with Donald Trump
Ever wonder what Donald Trump would do as President if he was faced with an intergalactic attack by an alien race? Would we find out that he has business ties on other planets in other dimensions? This week’s cold open pretty much sums it all up for us.
Scarlett Johansson opening monologue
Scarlett Johansson took some time to talk about her record fifth time hosting SNL. She was joined by cast member Kate McKinnon with whom she recently appeared in a movie. Check out the opening monologue below.
‘Fire Island’/’Cherry Grove’
This week, SNL skillfully played into some gay stereotypes when spoofing the recent trailer for Logo’s new series, Fire Island. Check out the alternate version of Fire Island called “Cherry Grove,” which is an actual area of the real Fire Island known for its lesbian culture.
Shud the mermaid
Kate McKinnon reprieved one of her funnier but lesser-known characters this week as Shud the mermaid: A mermaid who isn’t quite like the other mermaids.
This week Lorde returned to the music scene performing the songs “Green Light” and “Liability.” Check out her new music below.
Coming up on ‘SNL’
SNL takes some time off before returning on April 8 with host Louis C.K. and musical guest The Chainsmokers.
