Last night’s edition of “Saturday Night Live” included another spot on Trump impersonation by Alec Baldwin, in which he takes the 9th circuit justices to People’s Court.

Baldwin’s skit impersonating the President was part of his highly anticipated 17th time hosting the late night comedy show. In the segment, he portrayed Trump suing the justices of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — who recently upheld the halt on his so-called Muslim ban — on television’s People’s Court. Trump said that this was an appropriate venue because, “I’m a TV president.”

The judge explains to Trump, “Mr. Trump, you understand this is a TV court?”

To which Baldwin responds,

“That’s okay, I’m a TV president.”

Trump is then tasked with stating the details of the case.

“Thank you judge, or what do you call a lady judge? A flight attendant? Something like that? I signed a tremendous travel ban, I didn’t read it but I signed it. People took pictures of me holding up the paper.  Very official. And these judges have been very disrespectful. I’m right, they’re wrong. I want the ban reinstated — also I want $725.”

Baldwin’s Trump impersonation was not the only segment that garnered praise from last night’s episode of SNL, Melissa McCarthy opened as Sean Spicer during a press briefing and, in another skit, Kellyanne Conway stalked CNN’s Jake Tapper.
