Alec Baldwin is taking over the role of Donald Trump on SNL this season, and the very first sketch of the year, a reenactment of Donald's disastrous debate, made it clear why. The sketch also hits it right down the middle of SNL's political strength: confirming what we all thought we saw, but in a way too funny to deny. Donald Trump brought 5 minutes of material to a 90 minute debate, and Clinton just let him fill the rest with unprovoked, unhinged rants.
