Actor Alec Baldwin joined the elite league of best impersonators by playing presidential nominee Donald Trump on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
Everything was perfect–the actor’s voice, expressions, and even a badly tailored suit- as Alec Baldwin looked every inch, Trump in the show.

But, contrary to many of Trump’s critics, Baldwin chose to portray only idiosyncrasies of the Republican nominee and played safe by sticking to lighthearted classical humor. It was never a personal attack on Trump or his policies.
Instead, he focused more on his facial expressions, and mannerisms. “Good evening, America,” Baldwin-as-Trump said in his opening statement. “I am going to be so good tonight. I am going to be so calm and so presidential.”
At one point he was seen disturbing Hillary’s speech (SNL veteran Kate McKinnon) to remind her of correct pronunciation of China, mocking his weird pronunciation.
The actor dwelt with three of Trump’s infamous styles on the stage — repeating of sentences, coming with excuses and airing conspiracy theories.
However, the highlight of his show was the series of Trump accusations soon after the show was over, when he told the media that both the organizers and the moderators ruined his chances at the presidential debate last week.
Baldwin began on complaining as the audience went on a laughing.
“My microphone is broken. She(Hillary) broke it. With Obama. She and Obama stole my microphone. They took it to Kenya. They took my microphone to Kenya, and they broke it, and now it’s broken.”
On another occasion the moderator asked his rival what she wants to be and pat came the reply from Kate McKinnon: “I want to be the President of US.”
The other jokes in the show were Trump’s unruly hair, and his infamous sniffles in debate-night .
