Tom Hanks Joins Alec Baldwin In Ridiculing Donald Trump On ‘SNL’

Saturday Night Live” has given Donald Trump another thing to whine about.

The GOP nominee blasted Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him on the show last weekend. So who knows how he’ll react to this weekend’s hilarious spoof segment, which parodied the third and final presidential debate.

Cue references to his “Bad Hombres” and “Nasty Woman” gaffes, Kate McKinnon as his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton completing her “Trump Bingo” board and the entire planet erupting in laughter after Baldwin as Trump said “no one has more respect for women than I do.”

Baldwin as Trump even had time to poke fun at his younger brother, Stephen Baldwin, who this week said he didn’t think his sibling’s impression of the former Continue reading "Tom Hanks Joins Alec Baldwin In Ridiculing Donald Trump On ‘SNL’"

Surprisingly, “Doug” did pretty well and got along with his competition, even if he was reluctant to shake hands with Kenan Thompson at first.

Drake is open about her work as an adult film actress, and she told reporters that about 10 years ago, Trump invited her to a hotel room where he started hugging and kissing her and other women without their consent.
