Alec Baldwin Returns To ‘SNL’ To Reprise His Role As Donald Trump
After Kanye West’s meeting with Donald Trump, it was only a matter of time before the writers of Saturday Night Live threw out whatever script they had planned in order to spoof the sitdown seen ’round the world.

Alec Baldwin returned to SNL (Oct. 13) to reprise his role as 45 with Chris Redd portraying the Yandhi artist and Keenan Thompson sitting quietly as Jim Brown.
