Baldwin's Back as Trump... Serving Chili with a Finger in It
Alec Baldwin brought his Trump back to "SNL" in a skit that skewered the President's loyal supporters who are sticking with him even as he proposes budget cuts that will do direct damage to their well-being.
In an issues-oriented cold open, residents of Union, Kentucky (Mikey Day, Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney and Aidy Bryant), asked Baldwin's Trump about the minimum wage, afterschool programs, Obamacare, rehab assistance, regulations dealing with water quality, and other items he told them would be "junked." Even as their president glibly tells them he's cutting off the very things allowing them to make ends meet, each questioner declares continued support for the POTUS.
"It's like you found a finger in your chili," Trump declares, "but you still eat the chili because you told everyone how much you love chili — it's tremendous!"
