Alec Baldwin Is Basically Trolling Donald Trump in the 'SNL' Cold Open

Alec Baldwin clearly got the message that Donald Trump thinks he’s unfair to him on SNL because Baldwin is going low with a series of jokes designed to provoke the President-elect: Trump’s propensity for retweeting randos; Steve Bannon depicted as an evil, death-like figure (accurate); Trump’s disdain for unflattering photos; and his complete indifference to security briefings. Oh, and that he’s dumb. Just straight-up dead-hair dumb. They are taunting Trump.

The only downside is that, while I used to appreciate Kate McKinnon depicting Kellyanne Conway as a regretful enabler, it’s not as effective now because Conway regrets nothing.

Update: It worked.
