The gloves are off! Alec Baldwin and the Saturday Night Live writers addressed Donald Trump‘s sexist comments in a leaked 2005 video on Saturday, October 8, and they didn’t hold back, portraying the Republican presidential candidate as an arrogant sleaze who can’t admit when he’s wrong.
The NBC comedy institution opened the show with a sketch that began with the snoozy Vice Presidential Debate before it was interrupted by “breaking news” — and Baldwin as Trump appeared on the screen.
Addressing the controversy over the former reality star’s lewd comments about women to Billy Bush, who was then the cohost of Access Hollywood, Trump said that he would like to “deeply apple-a-gize.”
When Cecily Strong asked if he was trying to “apologize,” Trump said, “No, I would never do that. What I am doing is apple-a-gizing to all the people who were deeply offended by my statements, but more importantly, to the people who were turned on by them. I hear it’s really 50-50.”
As Us Weekly previously reported the real estate mogul made those remarks to Bush while not realizing his mic was hot. Trump told George H.W. Bush‘s nephew that he had tried and failed to “f–k” a married woman, who was later identified as former Access Hollywood cohost Nancy O’Dell.
The former Apprentice host, 70, who was just a few months into his marriage to third wife Melania Trump at the time, then talked about his fondness for kissing beautiful women and how being a celebrity enabled him to “grab them by the p–sy.”
In the sketch Trump was asked what he would specifically say to women voters. “I would say, women, if you give me a chance, I promise I can do a whole lot more than just grab it,” he said. “I can also bop it, twist it and pull it.” (Strong’s horrified reaction was pitch-perfect.)
The Democratic presidential candidate was clearly ecstatic over the Trump scandal breaking just ahead of the second presidential debate on Sunday, October 9, and called it her reward for every single thing she’s been through in the last 30 years, including having Mary J. Blige sing into her face for a full hour last week.
“It’s a very sad day for our country, and all women — minus one,” she said with a wink and a shoulder shimmy.
She then addressed all of the women who heard Trump’s comments and are still voting for him. “Mah babies,” she said. “Ya brain broke. I love ya but bitch ya cray.”
