SNL's Trump calls Fox & Friends while in bed with his morning Diet Coke

Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on SNL

Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live as President Trump calling in to his favorite show, Fox & Friends, while in bed enjoying his morning Diet Coke and Egg McMuffin. Before Trump rings in, though, the Fox hosts chat with White House gossip girl Hope Hicks (Cecily Strong) and a befuddled Minister Louis Farrakhan (Chris Redd), who has been invited to Fox to explore his newfound commonality with the network and the president: distrust of the FBI.

Soon it's time for Baldwin's Trump to get his daily intelligence briefing — from Fox & Friends, naturally — but what he really wants to do is talk about his "State of the Union speech, which was watched by 10 billion people, including all of China." After all, Trump muses, "a lot of folks are saying, including Paul Ryan, that it was better than Martin Luther King's 'I dream of Jeannie' speech."
