(Newser) – Alec Baldwin made his debut as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, and a look around the lame media shows that he was apparently terrific, just terrific, opposite Kate McKinnon's maniacally robotic Hillary Clinton. Baldwin "delivered an orange-faced, blustery impression," reports the AP, referencing US jobs departing for "Chi-naah," and repeatedly interrupting Clinton with cries of "Wrong!" 'Wrong!" ''Shut up!" For her part, McKinnon hammed up Clinton's canned "Trumped up trickle-down economics" catchphrase, which she claimed to have made up on the spot but Slate thinks was "presumably written by the same wag who tried to make 'Dangerous Donald' a thing." As Baldwin's Trump spirals out of control, McKinnon's Clinton is unable to contain her glee, at one point asking "Can America vote right NOW?"
