Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" to skewer President-elect Trump over the weekend. Making quick work of recent events, the comedy show satirized the ongoing controversy surrounding the cast of "Hamilton" delivering VP-elect Mike Pence a message at the end of the show.

“I heard you went to see Hamilton,” Baldwin’s Trump said to Beck Bennett’s Pence. “How was it?”
“It was good,” Pence replied. “I got a free lecture.”
Baldwin's Trump appeared without Kate McKinnon playing Hillary Clinton, and he held his own, ripping into the president-elect's perceived lack of understanding on fundamental issues.
“Siri, how do I kill ISIS? Ok, right, here we go. Big plan. Big plan. Google What is ISIS?"
The real President-elect Trump didn't seem to find the sketch funny as he quickly took to Twitter, saying, "It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all." Hours later, Alec Baldwin shot back over Twitter, drawing attention to the absurdity of a president-elect commenting on a comedy show and making some suggestions as to what might better occupy Trump's time.
