SNL Takes Donald Trump To ‘People’s Court’ To Duke It Out Over Muslim Ban In Funny Sketch

Hosting for an SNL record 17th time last night, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump in a People’s Court sketch that takes aim at Trump’s Muslim ban. Baldwin, who has stepped in and played many political figures over the years, claimed that playing Donald Trump is not all sunshine and roses. Baldwin recently admitted to Extra that “playing him is not a lot of fun. He’s tense, he’s angry, he’s pissed off, and that’s not fun to play.” He continued, “Another thing I find that’s so weird about the stuff we’re doing, we’re just repeating back what he says. Doing this is strange, but what is even more strange is this is real.”

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
