Alec Baldwin’s pouty Donald Trump has been a regular on Saturday Night Live for months now, and he was back Saturday in what was truly an example of life imitating art.
The sketch showed Baldwin's Trump and Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway during a security briefing, with Trump too preoccupied by Twitter to pay attention to his advisers.

“I’m sorry, Mrs. Leman, I think someone retweeted me."
Kate McKinnon as Trump’s senior advisor, Kellyanne Conway, tries to explain Trump’s strategy.

“Actually, that’s not why I do it. I do it because my brain is bad."

Trying to emphasize that none of this is actually a joke, Kenan Thompson, playing one of Trump's advisors, then pleaded, "Mr. Trump, please stop retweeting all these random, real people. You're not getting any work done."
