SNL’s Putin tells Alec Baldwin’s Trump that this Christmas, ‘you are the gift’

Alec Baldwin is back on Saturday Night Live and he’s still killing it with his Donald Trump impression.

In this Saturday’s segment, Baldwin’s Trump was joined by SNL cast members Beck Bennet (playing the role of Vladimir Putin) and Kate McKinnon (playing the role of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway), along with John Goodman who played Exxon-Mobile CEO and potential Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The skit started out with Trump asking if there are any more cabinet picks left to be made.

Conway then replies that former Texas Governor Rick Perry has agreed to take the job of Secretary of Energy.

“Wasn’t that a great choice? I saw him on Dancing With the Stars,” Trump said. “This guy has so much energy. Un-president-ed.”

“And now all I have to do is pick who’s going to be president,” he said.

“That’s you, sir,” Conway said.

“Can I just do it three days a week like Howard Stern does?” Trump asked.

Enter Putin.

“I was just in town, you know, hiding in the walls,” Bennet’s Putin said.

“Mr. Trump, I’m here because your CIA — they are saying we Russians tried to make you win election,” Putin said in the classic staccato Russian accent.

Some “very bitter people who need to move on” are lying, Trump said.

“So you trust me more than the American CIA?” Putin asked.

“All I know is I won,” Trump said.

Trump then complained that he didn’t have a gift for the Russian president.

“Please, Mr. Trump, you are the gift,” Putin said.
