AceShowbiz - Alec Baldwin might be absent from "Saturday Night Live" in January 21 episode, but it didn't stop the show from mocking Donald Trump. Just a day after Trump's inauguration, Beck Bennett took center stage as Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, saying that he would take care of America because it's the most expensive thing they've ever bought.
Shirtless Bennett's Putin greeted viewers, "Hello, America!" He said, "Yesterday we all made Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States." He continued, "Today many of you are scared and marching in the streets. You are worried that your country is in the hands of this unpredictable man. But don't worry. It's not. Relax, I got this. Putie's going to make everything OK." He added, "I promise that we will take care of America. It is the most expensive thing we have ever bought."
Addressing the inauguration crowds, Putin said, "Donald, let's talk as friends. You're not off to a great start, man. I thought you'd be better at this. However, I'm glad to see so many people showed up at your inauguration," while showing a video of a crowd of people. Then he quickly added, "Oh wait, that's the women's march. Here is inauguration," while showing a real picture of Trump's inauguration ceremony, which had less audience compared to the women's march.
"Today, you went to the CIA and said 1 million people came to see you in Washington, D.C.?" said Putin. "If you're going to lie, don't make it so obvious. Say you are friends with LeBron James, not that you are LeBron James." Putin also said, "Your whole inauguration was heavy on the god stuff, no? I never heard you say god that much and I have tapes of you having sex."
Beginning his monologue, Ansari said, "Crazy couple of days. Yesterday, Trump was inaugurated. Today, an entire gender protested against him." He continued, "I'm sure there's a lot of people voted for Trump the same way a lot of people listen to the music of Chris Brown, where it's like, 'Hey, man! I'm just here for the tunes. I don't know about that other stuff.. I don't condone the extracurriculars.' "
Ending his monologue, the comedian said, "If you're excited about Trump. Great." He continued, "If you're scared about Trump and you're very worried, you're going to be OK, too." He explained, "Because if you look at our country's history, change doesn't come from presidents. Change comes from large groups of angry people. And if day one is any indication, you are part of the largest group of angry people I have ever seen."
