Alec Baldwin to host SNL for record-setting 17th time

Alec Baldwin to host SNL for record-setting 17th time

This will mark a record-breaking 17th time that the Massapequa-raised actor has hosted the show, but the first since he began impersonating Donald Trump previous year. Baldwin has been portraying Trump on a semi-regular basis this season, and while most of the comments on his performance have been positive, Trump himself didn't think it was all that amusing.

But if viewers thought last week's Baldwin void meant he wouldn't be returning as Dictator-in-Chief, his just-announced 17th hosting gig on SNL certainly suggests otherwise.

In recent weeks, TV critic and also President Donald Trump has called SNL "not amusing", "the worst of NBC", and "bad". Of course, we can expect at least one sketch featuring Baldwin as Trump, with that sketch most likely coming in the cold open provided that Trump appears back in the news again for something ridiculous.
