Alec Baldwin powered back onto “Saturday Night Live’s” cold open, making a triumphant first appearance of the season as the show offered its take on President Donald Trump’s meeting with Kanye West (played by Chris Redd) in the Oval Office.
And there was something so ... familiar about West to Baldwin’s Trump.
As the rapper prattles on about superpowers, the myth of time, an invisible plane and “flying” to the meeting using the power of his MAGA hat, Trump begins to wonder in a voice-over: “This guy might be cuckoo. He doesn’t stop. He doesn’t listen to anybody but himself. Who does he remind me of?”
That’s when West declares himself a “stable genius” with a “big brain” and the “best words.”
“Oh my God! He’s black me!” says Trump.
Watching it all is shell-shocked NFL legend Jim Brown, played by Kenan Thompson, who wonders if someone can be “tri-polar.” And he wants to tell Redd’s West: “Superman didn’t wear a hat, you idiot.”
Trump and the singer finally share the love with a hug.
“I love you, Kanye,” Trump tells West. “We’ve got a lot more in common than people know: We’re both geniuses, we’re both married to beautiful women and we’ve both definitely been recorded saying the n-word.”
