Alec Baldwin to Bring Back His Trump to SNL This Weekend

Alec Baldwin to Bring Back His Trump to SNL This Weekend


Baldwin also reveals why he missed the first post-election show. 

Watching SNL every week became quite the coping method for many Americans as their weekly election coverage was the only thing keeping us sane.

The episode that aired right after the election, though, was missing President-elect Donald Trump, hilariously played by Alec Baldwin. Fans began to wonder where the star had gone off to for such a crucial episode.

Baldwin spoke with Vanity Fair about his hiatus from the show Thursday evening at the American Museum of Natural History's gala.

"I'm going to do it again this weekend," he said in reference to his role. "But not all that often. There was a lot of things online that was said about it--like why didn't I do it after the election? I was booked that weekend. Not even other jobs; we have things to do. It crashes every weekend."

Baldwin's wife Hilaria added that it's also an issue when it comes to time at home.

"When he does SNL, it takes a big chunk out of it because you're up so late, and then it eats into the next day. And for us, with little kids, it's hard."

So don't worry guys, Baldwin is coming back to SNL this Saturday.

Not to say that Kate McKinnon can't handle it on her own--because believe us she can.
