Tina Fey Returns to ‘Saturday Night Live’ as Sarah Palin: Watch

She's back! We'll admit it, when we saw Sarah Palin endorse Donald Trump for U.S. president earlier this week, we couldn't wait for the weekend to see if Tina Fey would be playing the former Alaska governor on Saturday Night Live. 

The SNL alum didn't disappoint in the show's cold opener on Saturday, January 23. Wearing a replica of Palin's beaded bolero, Fey nailed the impression that she first brought to life during the 2008 presidential campaign.

"I'm here because America is struggling," Fey as Palin said. "So many of us have lost our jobs at the factory — or our reality shows about Alaska."

While Darrell Hammond as Trump offered hilarious commentary, Fey channeled Palin's unique patter, saying she was "here for all you teachers and teamsters. You farmers and charmers. Whether you're a mom or two broke girls or three men and a baby, or a rock 'n' roller, holy roller, pushin' stroller."

And after endorsing the GOP front-runner, Fey then told the audience, "I don't really think this guy should be president. I'm just here 'cause he's promised me a spot in his Cabinet. And I belong in a Cabinet cause I'm full of spice and I've got a great rack." Watch the full video below.
