Alec Baldwin plays both Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly in searing 'SNL' skit


Alec Baldwin played two problematic, white American men on this week’s Saturday Night Live. 

He first appeared as President Donald Trump in the show’s cold open and later pulled double duty, playing both Trump and Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly in a scathing sketch addressing the sexual harassment allegations against the O’Reilly Factor host.

Baldwin’s O’Reilly opened the segment by promising to address “the scandal everyone’s been talking about all week.”

And just like that much-maligned newser, the sketch did not disappoint.

Alec Baldwin braved the inevitable oncoming Trump Twitter tirade to reprise his role as the president-in-waiting, touting Trump’s star-studded inauguration lineup, including “Jackie what’s-her-face” from America’s Got Talent and — hold onto your tits and bits — THREE. DOORS. DOWN.  Read more…
