What if Donald Trump had run for president in 2016… and lost?
It’s a dream that at least 51.7 percent of the country thinks about frequently, based on Trump’s most recent approval numbers. Not living in the darkest possible timeline sure would be nice.
The black & white cold open brings Trump (Alec Baldwin) and his angel friend Clarence (Kenan Thompson) to a holiday party in which various members of the SNL-ified Trump orbit appear to crack a few jokes and then fade into the scenery. It’s a blissful few minutes where we all get to imagine what life might look like without President Trump.
