Will Heath/NBC(NEW YORK) — Saturday Night Live wasted no time addressing vulgar comments made by Donald Trump in 2005 that came to light on Friday.
Saturday’s show opened with Trump — played by Alec Baldwin — interrupting an encore presentation of the vice presidential debate between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence to address the scandal.
Baldwin opened by asking, “Are you not entertained?”
Baldwin’s Trump apologized to those offended by his remarks, mispronouncing the word “apologize.”
“More importantly,” he continued, “to the people who were turned on by them, I hear it’s really 50/50,” he adds.
When asked why he would say such offensive things, the fake Trump explains he was “trying to look cool…I mean what normal, red-blooded American doesn’t want to impress the Billy Bush?”
“Also,” notes Baldwin’s Trump, “you have to admit it’s kind of funny that the only Bush that matters in this general election is Billy.”
“I was just a childish, 59-year-old man,” he added.
Afterward, Baldwin’s Trump was once again caught saying rude things when he thinks his microphone is turned off.
SNL veterans Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon continued the Trump attacks in a surprise appearance during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment, appearing as female voters from Philadelphia.
After joking that Trump “looks like someone who opened a quesadilla to pick the chicken out,” the two then poked fun at Fallon for messing up the Republican candidate’s hair during his appearance on The Tonight Show. They also suggested Pence is “really Biff from Back to the Future.”
Fey added that she also had problems with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, complaining that when the former first lady’s husband cheated on her she “didn’t finish the job,” suggesting she should have “cut off [Gennifer Flowers’] ponytail.”
