Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump Hilariously Fails to Lead the Army During an Alien Invasion in 'SNL' Cold Open

Saturday Night Live took on President Donald Trump once again over the weekend, showing what it would like if an alien invasion went down under his leadership. Spoiler alert: It doesn't go well.
Alec Baldwin reprised his impression of the commander-in-chief, who is tasked with the unenviable duty of motivating the last remaining cadre of soldiers following a devastating attack on the United States by extra-terrestrial villains.
Unfortunately for the troops, Baldwin's Trump isn't able to do much more than hit inane talking points while avoiding the real issues facing America -- like the fact that California has been vaporized.
"Everyone in California is dead," Kenan Thompson's army commander tells the president.
Trump only has one concern, however. "Even Arnold?" he asks, referring to his Celebrity Apprentice rival, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Trump also made sure to attack the presence of aliens, just not the evil ones coming from a distant planet. "The aliens are already here," he says. "They've been hiding in this country for hundreds of years."

McKinnon donned her old-man makeup to play Sessions once again during this week's Weekend Update, where the AG got grilled once again by Senator Al Franken (Alex Moffat):
