Alec Baldwin revisited his impersonation of President-elect Donald Trump in a nearly eight-minute cold open on "Saturday Night Live," just days after it was confirmed he would only return after Trump's inauguration.

Skewering Trump's recent chaotic press conference, "Trump" started by stating, "Yes, this is real life, this is really happening. On January 20th, I — Donald J. Trump — will become the 45th president of the United States. And then two months later, Mike Pence will become the 46th."

Beck Bennett as Vladimir Putin wondered if Trump was "really, really sure" Russia hacked the election.
