SNL skewered both Bill O’Reilly and President Donald Trump in a masterful sketch, where both characters were played by a brilliant Alec Baldiwn.
“A scandal no one thought I’d have the guts to address head on about the shocking allegations of abuse of power that have been leveled against … the Obama administration,” Baldwin’s O’Reilly said, absolutely nailing the mannerisms.
He then launches into some trumped up Obama scandal. For more details, O’Reilly then turns to a female Fox News analyst who’s “normally in studio, but is now reporting live via satellite from exactly 500 yards away.”
O’Reilly has lost 60 advertisers so far. On Friday, he was down to just nine advertisers, two of which were for condoms. His days are probably numbered, and this SNL sketch will probably help hasten his involuntary retirement.
Now if only it would work for the occupant of the White House, who then appeared in the sketch, probably thanks to a well-timed tape, and who was also played by Baldwin.
Baldwin’s Trump appeared via satellite to discuss the accusations facing the Fox News host. “I’m more familiar with this case than I am say health care, but I didn’t really look into it much, no. I was too busy being super presidential and bombing a bunch of [bleep], he said.
SNL Trump also brought up National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, “a subject near and dear to my hand,” the he said.
