In spite of saying he might not play President Trump much longer, Alec Baldwin returned for another biting cold open, this time trolling Trump for spending too much time at Mar-a-Lago, pitting adviser Steve Bannon/The Grim Reaper (Mikey Day) against his son-in-law Jared Kushner (guest host Jimmy Fallon) in a nail-biting, reality-show-style "elimination night."
After recalling his first 100 days with Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), Trump calls in Bannon and "my little Kush-ball." Kushner, wearing the preppy garb (topped off with a combat vest) the real Kushner sports on a recent surprise trip to Iraq, is welcomed in with a snippet of EMF's 1991 hit "Unbelievable."
In a riff on Tyra Banks' "America's Next Top Model" routine, Trump tells the men before him he has only one photo in his hand — no surprise, Kushner, his son-in-law, prevails. "If you are born rich and marry my daughter, you can do anything you want," Trump says before declaring Kushner "a cute little twink."
