Ed Sheeran upstages Alec Baldwin with 'terrific' Donald Trump impression
Alec Baldwin might be the most famous President Donald Trump impersonator on the planet, but that doesn't intimidate Ed Sheeran.
"You do a really good Trump impression," says SNL cast member Cecily Strong, who joins the guys for the promo.
"Thanks so much," says a smiling Baldwin, who is clearly accustomed to similar praise.
"Oh no, I'm sorry — I was talking to Ed," says Strong, correcting a surprised Baldwin. "He was cracking everybody up. Ed, do it."
Without skipping a beat, the "Shape of You" crooner busts out his take on POTUS: "Terrific!" says Sheeran, lowering his voice while acing Trump's signature hand moves.

"So good!" says Strong, laughing. Baldwin, meanwhile, doesn't look so impressed.
