"Saturday Night Live" airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. ET/8:35 p.m. PT on Global; "SNL" will return with its 45th season in the fall. In this weekend's conclusion to "S.N.L". Besides, this is the Season 44 finale.

But nevertheless, he says he is on cruise control to a second term, so will be having himself a good time tonight.

Baldwin as Trump was then joined by his chorus which included including Melania Trump (Cecily Strong), Sarah Sanders (Aidy Bryant) and Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) for a Trumpian rendition of "Don't Start Me Now" by Queen.

The president ended with a Game of Thrones quip, advising viewers to "tune in next season to see who lives and who dies".

Even Kanye West (Chris Redd) joined them, wearing his red MAGA cap as he puts his arm around the president and rapped to the rock hit.

A parody of Robert Mueller, played by Robert De Niro shows up trying to stop the party, saying he has important news for the American public, something they need to hear.

Trump blocked him and said, "No collusion, no obstruction". The garment has become a symbol of resistance in recent years, employed in this specific instance to target Alabama's near-total abortion ban, signed by the governor earlier this week.

I know that Baldwin's Trump, along with Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton, brought a surge of attention and ratings to SNL during the 2016 campaign, and it's understandable that SNL would want to keep riding that wave. The audience booed as Jones, who had taken off her cloak to reveal a black T-shirt with the word "MINE" pointing toward her uterus, called attention to the senators's gender after a grid of their faces appeared on screen. "This look like the mug shots of everyone arrested at a massage parlor".

That's really the problem here: SNL feels compelled to tackle Trump, but it doesn't really have anything amusing or insightful to say about him.
