Alec Baldwin paid a visit to Saturday Night Live this week, in a reprisal of his impression of U.S. President Donald Trump.

The show opened with Baldwin as Trump hosting a rally in Pheonix, wearing sunglasses and taking credit for finding out that "you can damage your eyes by looking into the eclipse."

Baldwin continued, joking that "there was a tragic victim that came out of Charlottesville, me," and blaming the media for this week's negative coverage of Trump.

 He then promised that he would pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio, said that he "solved Afghanistan," and brought up the border wall with Mexico, this time adding that U.S. tax payers would be footing the bill.

Finally, he invited Steve Bannon to the stage to give him a "proper goodbye," and was joined on stage by the Grim Reaper. He said that Bannon will be "fighting the good fight" at Breitbart, "against globalist cucks like my son-in-law Jared."

Baldwin is so identified with his Trump impersonation that in February, in an article about American relations with Israel, a newspaper in the Dominican Republic, El Nacional, mistakenly ran a picture of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with Baldwin instead of Trump.
