Fans of Alec Baldwin and his impersonation of President Donald Trump were in for a special treat on Saturday as the actor not only reprised his role but expanded on it. This past week has seen FOX News host, Bill O’Reilly come under increased scrutiny for allegations of sexual harassment.

Trump defended O’Reilly and his actions.

For his part, Trump has been supportive of the talk show host. Last week, in another unprecedented move, Trump defended O’Reilly in an interview from the Oval Office.

Many critics of the president and others were not surprised by the president’s statement about O’Reilly and were treated to an unusual sketch on the comedy show over the weekend when Baldwin took on both men in a sketch parody of a conversation between the two men.

This was the second sketch of the night in which Baldwin played the current president. The cold open of the show also featured an impression of the president. That had Baldwin, as Trump, meeting with supporters of the president in a small mining community.
