Alec Baldwin Helps SNL Re-Create Trump-Hillary Debate Pretty Much Exactly

Former 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin helped Saturday Night Live kick off its 42nd season by portraying Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in a cold open that satirized this week’s first presidential debate, but along with Kate McKinnon‘s dead-on Hillary Clinton impression, Baldwin and company mostly re-enacted the surreal debate almost exactly as it happened.

Baldwin nailed many of Trump’s mannerisms, including an observant bit on the real estate mogul’s pronunciation of “China,” and McKinnon capably portrayed Clinton’s polished delivery and coolness under Trump’s self-inflicted fire.
With source material like this, a satirist’s job is that much easier.
