Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump Takes His Grievances To 'The People's Court' On 'SNL'
Huffington Post - 10 days
After a federal appeals court on Thursday dealt a major blow to President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban, the commander in chief tweeted that he would “SEE YOU IN COURT.”
And on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” he was portrayed as doing exactly that.
Host Alec Baldwin’s version of Trump took the three 9th Circuit Court judges who ruled against his executive order to a different judicial venue: “The People’s Court.”
“Mr. Trump, you understand this is a TV court, right?” asks the judge, played by Cecily Strong.
“That’s OK,” Baldwin’s Trump replies. “I’m a TV president.”
In the sketch, the president demands that his travel ban be reinstated ― and in true TV court style, he asks for $725 in compensation from the judges who wronged him. He even brings in a star character witness: “Someone who’s known me for years, he’s family, he’s an incredible person with impeccable credentials: Mr. Vladimir Putin.”
