Borrowing a bit from Independence Day, Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live to reimagine President Trump facing down aliens. But rather than an inspirational speech to rally the troops, Baldwin turns to a conspiracy theory, notes ABC News, saying, "Actually, I heard the aliens are already here. They've been hiding in this country for hundreds of years, it's a fact. They're shapeshifters. They look like regular people but they're aliens. Look, there's one right there." When a general asks his source, Baldwin responds, "From a very reputable source: Infowars. It's a radio show hosted by Alex Jones. You know he's legit because he's always taking off his shirt."

Kate McKinnon continued her romp through this season, notes NPR, reappearing in a squirrelly impersonation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, alongside Alex Moffat as former SNL cast member and current US Senator Al Franken. And Scarlett Johansson made her fifth appearance as guest host, spoofing Ivanka Trump in an ad for a perfume called "Complicit." "She's a woman who knows what she wants and knows what she's doing," the voice-over says. "A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women, but like, how?" SNL is on hiatus until April 8.
