Alec Baldwin returns to 'SNL' as Donald Trump, Scarlett Johansson spoofs Ivanka Trump, Kate McKinnon reprises Jeff Sessions
The actor reprised his role during the show's cold open.
— -- Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend to reprise his role as President Donald Trump, kicking off the show with a cold open inspired by the sci-fi film "Independence Day."
Set at a military base about to be invaded by aliens, Baldwin's Trump is debriefed by an officer, played by cast member Kenan Thompson.

The cold open implies that Trump relies on questionable sources for his facts.
"Actually, I heard the aliens are already here," Baldwin's Trump says. "They've been hiding in this country for hundred of years. It's a fact. They are shape-shifters."
Thompson's character asks, "Where are you getting this information?"
Then, in an attempt to imply that the president mispronounces words, Baldwin's Trump stumbles over the words "hereby" and "demand," saying, "That is why I hair-by demand. Sorry. I here-be be-dammed. Sorry. I Gigi Hadid. Sorry. We launch an investigation into these ... aliens right now."
"A feminist. An advocate. A champion for women," says the voiceover. The camera then pans to a trio of other women, and the voiceover says, "but how?" It's an apparent attempt to question the first daughter's values.
