(Newser) – Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live as President Trump for the first time since his arrest Nov. 2, but included himself in the receiving end of the ribbing, reports USA Today. In character as Trump on an Argentine balcony, Baldwin lamented Robert Mueller's investigation, saying, "God, I haven’t been this upset since I flipped out over that parking space." The sketch romped through a series of visits from Cecily Strong as Melania Trump, Ben Stiller as Michael Cohen, Kate McKinnon as Rudy Giuliani, Beck Bennett as Vladimir Putin, and Fred Armisen as Mohammed bin Salman, and ended with a riff on Evita, with Baldwin singing, "Don't cry for me, Argentina/The truth is/I'm very guilty/Some little no-nos/And maybe treason/But I kept my promise/Oops, no I didn't."

Meanwhile, Weekend Update paid tribute to former President George HW Bush, notes the Boston Globe, who was long portrayed on the show by Dana Carvey and invited the comedian to do his impersonation at the 1992 White House Correspondents' Dinner. Claire Foy guest-hosted the episode. (Read more Saturday Night Live stories.)
