'SNL' tackles President Trump's meeting with Kanye West

Baldwin reprised his role as Trump as he welcomed West, played by Chris Redd, into the Oval Office. On the third episode of the new season, Alec Baldwin returned fresh off his own minor scandal involving race to poke fun at the president's meeting with Kanye West and Jim Brown earlier in the week.

Redd's West said that he flew to the meeting using the "power" of his "Make America Great Again" hat.

"Oh, this guy might be cuckoo", Baldwin's Trump said. Check out clips from the skit below. "He doesn't listen to anyone but himself". "Kanye wants to be Trump's famous friend because Obama called Kanye a jackass and if the president of the United States called you a jackass you'd go, 'You know who I like?"

"Oh my God, he's black me!"

Baldwin's Trump started to think that all of this could be good for him because Kanye made Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh "look calm and collected".

Experts say good hygiene and making sure little ones are washing their hands are one way to prevent spreading viruses and germs. The CDC estimates that less than a million people will get AFM every year in the United States.

West followed that with borrowing lines from Trump himself, saying he is a "stable genius" and "has a big brain and the best words".

Finally, Trump makes sense of West.

There's more - a lot more - including Kanye declaring "I am the best living recording artist", boasting about his IQ and assuring us all he's not insane. he just needs some sleep. Jim says out loud, "Mental health is more of an issue in the black community than I thought".
