(Newser) – Alec Baldwin made his return as the president-elect on Saturday Night Live—a week after his conspicuous absence in a muted Cold Open—and it is again safe to assume that his performance did not go over well with the future occupant of the Oval Office, reports the AP. After a general praises Trump's ''secret plan" to take out ISIS, Baldwin's Donald Trump scurries over to his desk to frantically Google "What is ISIS?" Bowled over by the results, he proceeds to ask his BlackBerry, "Siri, how do I kill ISIS?" Starting to freak out, Baldwin's Trump soothes himself by repeating, "Big beautiful boobs and buildings big beautiful boobs and buildings," adds People. SNL alum Jason Sudekis returned in his role as Mitt Romney; Romney and Trump met in reality on Saturday at Trump's New Jersey golf course.

The real Trump was back on Twitter trolling SNL, tweeting, "I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?" Trump also doubled down on his insistence that the cast of Hamilton apologize to VP-elect Mike Pence, tweeting that the show, "which I hear is highly overrated," should "apologize immediately" for "terrible behavior."
