Alec Baldwin returns as Trump in 'SNL' cold open to talk 'golden showers,' 'fake news'

Saturday Night Live returned from its winter holiday break on Saturday to poke fun at the recent news surrounding President-elect Donald Trump and the recently released, unverified Russian reports that featured such claims as Trump asking prostitutes to perform "golden showers" and Trump's first press conference in nearly half a year.

In SNL's cold open, Alec Baldwin stood at a podium and addressed the crowd. "Yes, this is real life, this is really happening," Baldwin said.

As the press conference continued, Baldwin's Trump boasted about his upcoming inauguration and the acts performing. "Hold onto your tits and bits because we have got 3 Doors Down and the Rockette with the least amount of money in her savings."

He also took questions from the audience, who wanted to address the "golden shower" claims. "I am not talking about the pee pee," Baldwin said. "It wasn't as cool as it sounds."

Despite his protestation, Baldwin continued with the urine innuendo. "I am going to bring back a thick stream of jobs. This country will be literally showered in jobs. I am a whiz at jobs," he said. Baldwin then pointed to the crowd to see who was "in" for his plan. "You're in, you're in, you're in," said Baldwin's Trump, running the words together.

He then introduced Steve Harvey (Kenan Thompson) who asked if it "bodes well for our government" for him to be there, eliciting a buzzer and three large X's ala a wrong answer on Family Feud.
