Alec Baldwin's impression of President Donald Trump returned to Saturday Night Live to kick off Season 43 with a bang in the show's cold open.
Taking a phone call from San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz in Puerto Rico, played by Melissa Villasenor, Trump tells her she's called the right person for help. "Trust me I know things are, as the locals say, 'despacito,'" he says, referencing the dire situation the country is in after Hurricane Maria struck the island a few weeks ago.
Trump promises her country help by the middle of this week, but Cruz tells him that's not good enough. "You should have paid your bills," he tells her.
"Ma'am, I don't know if you know this but you are on an island, in the water. We want to help you but we have to take care of America first," he adds. "Wait, you do know we're a U.S. territory don't you?" Cruz asks.
Looking shocked, Baldwin as Trump stammers, "I mean I do, but not many people know that." Hanging up on Cruz, he mutters, "Wow that woman was so nasty."
