Alec Baldwin's Trump Turns Into Jaws In SNL Debate Sketch

Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. "Time to retire the boring and unfunny show".

Last night's Saturday Night Live not only managed to catch the attention of Donald Trump - who tweeted that he wasn't impressed with Alec Baldwin's impression of him - but a solid showing of viewers as well. It is opening the season with four straight live episodes, will take a break October 29, and will be back on the Saturdays immediately before and after the election.

Trump then went on to write two more tweets about how the media was helping the Hillary Clinton campaign "by putting stories that never happened into news!"

Saturday's opening sketch skewered Trump's onstage pacing during the second presidential debateĀ and portrayed him as both a racist and hypocrite.

Actor Alec Baldwin and SNL-comic Kate McKinnon frequently appear on Saturday Night Live with Baldwin as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and McKinnon as Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "I'm going to blow this whole thing".

Many more cracked jokes about Trump's response to the segment, questioning why the presidential candidate would fire back in response to satire.

"Martha, she is trying to silence these women but they need to be respected", Baldwin, as Trump, tells debate moderator Martha Raddatz, played by Cecily Strong.

On Twitter, Mr. Trump described the show as a "hit job".

However, there were also parts of the sketch that poked fun at Clinton in particular her often-criticised inability to look relateable, and relaxed.
