‘Saturday Night Live’ Blasts Donald Trump’s Lewd 2005 Hot Mic Scandal: Watch
Saturday Night Live hilariously addressed Donald Trump's now-infamous leaked 2005 video on October 8, skewering the GOP presidential candidate with a cold open sketch in which Alec Baldwin, reprising his impression of Trump, goes onto CNN to "apple-ogize" for making sexist, predatory remarks about women.
"I was trying to look cool," Baldwin-as-Trump rationalizes during his, erm, "apology," referencing TV and radio host Billy Bush, who was also seen in the video. "What normal, red-blooded American doesn't want to impress the Billy Bush? Also, P.S., it's kind of funny that the only Bush that matters in this general election is Billy."
After some back and forth with the anchor, the business mogul then makes one last plea to women voters.
"Listen, women, if you give me a chance, I promise I can do a whole lot more than just grab it. I can also bop it, twist it and pull it!" Baldwin's Trump promises, as Cecily Strong, playing a news anchor, squirms uncomfortably.
After the interview, Baldwin's version of Trump is heard making more sexually perverse comments about women while off camera, thanks to a still-hot mic.
"I wish that I was that hurricane, tearing through all of that hot Miami p---y," he says about Hurricane Matthew, oblivious to the fact that his microphone is still broadcasting. "I would just destroy it!"
CNN then cuts to Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters where Clinton—Kate McKinnon reprising her role as the democratic nominee with a sort of maniacal glee—is seen celebrating and popping bottles over Trump's self-destructing behavior.
