Saturday Night Live's Kanye West/Donald Trump circus continues.
Just last week, Pete Davidson shared his two cents on Kanye West's unceremonious pro-Trump speech and called it "one of the worst things" he's ever witnessed at Studio 8H. This week, the long-running comedy show stepped it up a notch with renowned Donald Trump impersonator, Alec Baldwin, who spoofed the president's recent meeting with the rapper.
The October 12 episode's cold open sketch recreated the sit-down between West and Trump, along with NFL legend Jim Brown.
“Thank you all for joining us today for this important discussion. This is no way a publicity stunt," Baldwin's Trump said. "This is a serious private conversation between three friends, plus 50 reporters with cameras. I'm proud to welcome Kanye West-Saddam-Yeezus-Yandhi-Yaddam-Yossein, an amazing guy," he said, obviously mocking West's habit of coming up with crazy nicknames for himself.
Actor Chris Redd's West acknowledged the warm welcome and said he flew to the White House "using the power of this hat" — the infamous MAGA cap on his head. He went on to say "lucid remarks," according to Baldwin's Trump, and recited West's controversial declarations (which are well in the realm of fake news, if we're being honest).
"First, let me begin with the idea that time is a myth of infinite amounts of universe, and I'm a prisoner in a different dimension. Have I lost anyone so far?" he said, and everyone in the room except for Trump raised their hands. He went on to say the "13th amendment is a trapped door," and that Chicago's murder rate is going down every year.
"Oh, this guy might be cuckoo," Trump thought to himself.
Then, Kanye exclaimed he was a genius with a "big brain" and "big words," which led to Trump realizing, "oh my god, he’s Black me!"
The skit also made fun of the fact that Kanye's iPhone password is 000000 (this is NOT fake news). "His password is six zeros?" Baldwin’s Trump said in his inner monologue. "Well, at least now I feel a lot better about my password — 80085, aka BOOBS."
Redd's West concluded by giving a summary of his, uh, random ramblings.
"So in conclusion: Thirteenth amendment, Chi-raq, trapdoors lead to the Unabomber, male energy, Trump is my dad, Hillary’s a woman and the media needs to start making this president look good," he said.
"I love you, Kanye. We have a lot more in common than people know," Trump said, arm in arm with his new BFF. "We are both geniuses, we’re both married to beautiful women and we’ve both definitely been recorded saying the 'N-word.'"
Meanwhile, Kenan Thompson's Jim Brown thought what us casual viewers were thinking to ourselves the entire time: "Oh my Lord, what have I gotten myself into? Is God testing me? I might have to tackle both of these fools!"
