Alec Baldwin pulled double duty on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. Not only was he back to play President Trump, but he also debuted a Bill O’Reilly impression — while interviewing himself as Trump.
The result: SNL got to tease two of its favorite foils at the same time — using only one actor.
The (not entirely seamless) sketch focused on O’Reilly’s budding problem of sexual harassment allegations, which Trump this week dismissed by saying, “I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
In the sketch, even Baldwin-as-O’Reilly is incredulous that the president decided to weigh in his defense, at a time when advertisers are quickly fleeing. Asked about how much he actually knows about the case, Baldwin-as-Trump demurs.
“I’m more familiar with this case than, say, health care, but I really didn’t look into it much, no,” he said. “I was busy being super presidential, by bombing a bunch of s—.”
