SNL: Alec Baldwin mocks Trump with spoof rendition of 'Don't Stop Me Now'

Jack Shepherd

This week’s Saturday Night Live opened with Alec Baldwin reprising his role as Donald Trump and singing a spoof version of Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now”.

The sketch began with Baldwin’s Trump discussing his Summer vacation plans, saying that he’s on “cruise control” until the second term.

“I’m very excited for Summer,” he said. ”Getting around to all those things I never have time for: golf, visiting friends in prison, and enjoying all the new tariffs from China.”

After telling America to “sit back and enjoy the ride”, Baldwin’s Trump, along with other members of the current administration – including Melania Trump (Cecily Strong), Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) and Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant) – burst into a rendition of the Queen song, with the words changed to “Don’t stop him now, because he’s having a good time”.

“He’s a loose canon ripping up the laws, of society,” sang Bryant’s Sanders. ”You can’t subpoena him, he’s going to obstruct.”

Towards the end of the sketch, Robert De Niro made an appearance as Robert Mueller. “I have something very important to tell the American people, something they need to hear,” he said.

Baldwin’s Trump interrupted: “No collusion, no obstruction. So don’t stop me now!” Watch the entire sketch below.


The episode of Saturday Night Live was hosted by Paul Rudd and marked the season finale.
