SNL Cold Open: Trump & Company Sing “Hallelujah”

Seated at a piano, a lone Alec Baldwin as “Donald Trump” begins singing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”

He’s quickly joined by the SNL cast members who have brought the Trump administration to life over the past several months: Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon), Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), Eric Trump (Alex Moffat), Donald Trump Jr. (Mikey Day), Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), Melania Trump (Cecily Strong) and Ivanka Trump (Scarlett Johansson).

Watch Baldwin’s “Trump” on the line, “I didn’t come to fool ya.”

The effect is quite different from last November when Kate McKinnon used the same song to staggering effect as “Hillary Clinton” after the election.
