  'SNL' Cold Open Gives Alec Baldwin's Trump Town Hall the Wrestlemania Treatment (Video) Surprising no one, the latest edition of "SNL" began with a parody of the week's most talked-about politics moment, the dueling town halls by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

Che’s joke comes after NBC received backlash for running a town hall at the same time as Biden’s on ABC, despite the latter being scheduled first. As a result of the decision, a number of Hollywood stars including Wanda Sykes and and Julia Louis-Dreyfus supported the NBC blackout and urged viewers to watch the ABC town hall instead.

“Weekend Update” didn’t let up on Trump. Joining Che and Colin Jost on the desk were Alex Moffat as Donald Trump Jr. and Kyle Mooney as Eric Trump. With the two on set, the segment went on to mock Trump’s “sarcastic” suggestion of disinfectant as COVID-19 treatment.

Moffat’s Donald went on to drink hand sanitizer, only for Mooney’s Eric to criticize him for it.

“Dad said it was fine,” Moffat joked.

The “Weekend Update” segment also touched on Trump’s failure to denounce QAnon during the town hall, his surprisingly low tax returns and the president’s packed rallies.
