Alec Baldwin returned to the show with his Trump impersonation, this time starting by popping up on Paul Manafort, played by Alex Moffat, wearing a "casual $10,000 suit" while stuck on house arrest following the charges brought against him by special counsel Robert Mueller. On the record, there's all kinds of evidence that Trump has behaved this way, and he's the president of the United States and that being just one of the things that is horrifying people about Trump, his opinions, his behavior, his methodology and there's nothing you can do about that. "I was about to give you a yuge tax break".

"I simply posited that the settlement of such cases certainly delayed justice, though I am fully aware that those settlements were entered into with the understanding that settlement is wise, intimidated into believing so", Baldwin wrote.

The president assures Manafort that he plans to turn him into a turkey and pardon him on Thanksgiving, but then warns, "There is a small chance that I'll screw that up too".

In the episode of Saturday Night Live that aired immediately after the Harvey Weinstein scandal split Hollywood wide open, the sketch show struggled to grapple with the story, offering for one righteous line in a sketch and a few "Weekend Update" jokes.

"That's what she said".

You can see Baldwin's initial comments on the matter below; as a response to the criticism he announced via Twitter that he is stepping away from social media himself to better assess future situations and to correct some of his wrongs.

Alec Baldwin faced a fierce backlash after he spoke about Harvey Weinstein's alleged rape of Rose McGowan during an interview with PBS Newshour, leading the actor to leave Twitter.

Also in the cold open, Strong's Melania Trump goes to Hawaii - where the first couple yesterday - bringing along an inflatable Trump look-a-like, instead of her husband.

The oblivious fake first lady praises Trump for being so quiet, respectful and even notes that he appears to be bulking up.
