We can’t wait to hear Donald Trump‘s take on this!
Considering Baldwin is an outspoken liberal and consistent guest-host of the series (16 times!), it looks like Lorne Michaels made the perfect casting decision! We can’t wait to see the 58-year-old mimic the politician’s ridiculous hand gestures — and now sniffles!
Similar to Larry David‘s stint as Bernie Sanders, the actor will appear as Drumpf for a few episodes throughout the season. While the celeb has taken on a variety of impressions for SNL before (Al Pacino, Bono, Marlon Brando), this will be his first time taking on Trump. Previously former cast member and current announcer Darrell Hammond portrayed him.
Following the exciting news, the show shared a HIGHlarious teaser featuring Donald’s running mate Hillary Clinton AKA Kate McKinnon.
