With "Saturday Night Live" on hiatus, Alec Baldwin has been able to enjoy a mostly bronzer-free summer. But on Thursday the actor dutifully pursed his lips and broke out the orange wig to reprise his impression of President Trump on "Weekend Update: Summer Edition."
Baldwin spoofed Tuesday's freewheeling, factually challenged rally in Phoenix, where Trump repeatedly condemned the press and defended his Charlottesville, Va., comments by pretending as if he'd never uttered the phrase "both sides."
"People ask me, why are you doing a rally only eight months in? Folks, it’s never too early to campaign for 2020," said Baldwin-as-Trump. "Mike Pence is already doing it."
