Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump was conspicuously absent from last week’s SNL, the show’s first episode since the Celebrity Apprentice host was elected the next President of the United States. Instead, the cold open went to Kate McKinnon-as-Hillary Clinton covering “Hallelujah” by the late Leonard Cohen. Baldwin, who was handpicked by Lorne Michaels to impersonate Trump, has said that his first impulse was to decline the offer, because “you need to have at least some appreciation of the person… for which Trump, I have none.”
Was he done spraining his jaw? Not exactly.
