Alec Baldwin of the Glenn Garry Glenn Ross movie 'speech' fame took to center stage on "Saturday Night Live" as the Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Kate Mckinnon of SNL fame reprised her role of the Republican Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. This Saturday's episode was taken directly from the Presidential Debate with references to talk show hosts Sean Hannity, Rosie O'Donnell and and Bill Clinton's infamous mistress Monica Lewinsky.

The fake Lester Holt started the show by reminding Trump supporters of "no shirt, no shoes and no service." After welcoming the audience "Mr Holt" introduced "Hillary Clinton" by saying,m "First she has been battling pneumonia and we hope she's felling better tonight.

It's Secretary Hillary Clinton."

Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton

With that introduction a frail looking "Hillary Clinton" in the shape of Kate Mckinnon, wearing a red dress as the real Presidential candidate, walked in coughing onto the stage. But "Mrs. Clinton" surprised the audience by doing a somersault and saying "I've feel better than ever. Let's do this." The audience cheered and "Mr. Holt" introduced the next Presidential candidate by saying, "And finally he's the man to blame for the bottom half of all his kids' faces."

Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump 

Alec Baldwin's "Donald Trump" walked in with his trademark hair and look (though Baldwin could've done better if he had chosen a red tie over a blue one). He looked around before informing the audience that "he'll be good tonight." Mr Trump said "Good evening America! I'm going to be so good tonight.

I'm going to be so calm and so Presidential"

On jobs and economy

"Mr Holt" hit the show off by questioning the candidates about "jobs and economy." He asked  the fake Mrs. Clinton, "Secretary Clinton, let's begin withyou. Why are you a better choice than your opponent to create jobs and put money into the pockets of American workers?" Hillary Clinton summed up her answer by saying, "Trumped-up trickle-down economics." She said, "My opponents tax plan benefits the top one percent so much. It's not just some trickle-down economics."

'Mr Trump' blames Mexicans 

"Mr Trump" replied by saying that the jobs are being taken by the Mexicans. He said, "Our jobs are fleeing this country.

they're going to Mexico. They're going to Gina (referring to China)."  The "Republican leader" ended the conversation abruptly and walked away by announcing that he had won the debate already. He said, "If Hillary knew how, she would've done it. Period. End of story. I won the debate. I stayed calm. Just like I promised. And it is over." 

'90 minute debate' climax 

"Mr Holt" called "Mr Trump" back by saying that there was 88 minutes left. "Donald, there's still 88 minutes left", "Mr Holt" said. "It's a 90 minute debate!" In the climax of the comedy sketch "Donald Trump" returned to the stage but blamed both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama for "breaking his microphone." He said," My microphone is broken. She broke it with Obama. She and Obama stole my microphone. They took it to Kenya. They took it to Kenya. They broke it.

 And now it's broken."

'Hillary Clinton' threatens society 

"Hillary Clinton" concluded the debate by saying things like "I'm going to be President" to "Mr Trump"'s ramblings. She later "threatened" the public by saying "But if you don't elect me I will continue to run for the President until the day I die."
