Here’s Donald Trump’s first sketch on yesterday’s Saturday Night Live, as he hosts for the first time since 2004. Doubtless you’ll be seeing a lot of it, possibly mistaking it for an ad put together by the campaign staff of the would-be Republican nominee for President. Set in the White House in 2018, it features President Trump fielding nothing but great news from his Cabinet — including a cameo by daughter Ivanka as Secretary of the Interior announcing that the Washington Monument is about to be covered in gold mirrored glass — and congratulating the Mexican president for paying off the border wall and changing Telemundo to an all-English network. Stepping forward from the set, Trump “confided” to the audience that he’d asked the writers to tone it down, before adding, “If you think that’s how it’s going to be when I’m President, you’re wrong. It’s going to be even better.” Huge, it was.
