Saturday Night Live: Alec Baldwin prepares to play Donald Trump

Posted on

Alec Baldwin is ready to make Saturday Night Live great again.

The 30 Rock star dons bushy eyebrows, a comb-over wig, and a purse-lipped expression to play Donald Trump in a new promo for the show’s season 42 premiere.

Set to air Oct. 1 on NBC, the episode will feature Baldwin-as-Trump facing off against Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton.

While cast member McKinnon has been playing Clinton for a while on SNL — she even got Emmy congratulations from the Democratic presidential nominee earlier this month — Baldwin’s Trump is new to the show. Previous Trump impersonators include Darrell Hammond and Taran Killam. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Baldwin will play Trump all season long.
