(Newser) – Alec Baldwin was pulling double duty as President Trump and Bill O'Reilly in the same sketch as Saturday Night Live returned with Louis CK as guest host. Baldwin began by spoofing Trump in the cold open—in which he told coal country voters that "I love coal. In Trump's America, all men work in two places: coal mines and Goldman Sachs," per NBC News.
