Baldwin reprises Trump on SNL for a VERY special game of Deal or No Deal where he ends the government shutdown for a hamberder after turning down wide-eyed Pelosi’s offer of ‘$1 billion, and you say Nancy is my mommy’
Alec Baldwin returned as President Donald Trump who plays the reality game show Deal or No Deal with Democrats in order to end the partial federal shutdown on a brand new episode of Saturday Night Live.
The special ‘government shutdown edition’ of the popular game show is usually hosted in real life by Howie Mandel, but SNL had Steve Harvey, portrayed hilariously by Kenan Thompson, step in.
Harvey joked that Mandel wasn’t available to host because he had contracted ‘ebola’ after ‘shaking someone’s hand.’

In real life, Mandel suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder that manifests as a crippling, anxiety-producing fear of germs.
Harvey then joked about about spending two hours waiting on line at airport security in Atlanta because TSA agents ‘thought I was smuggling extra teeth in my mouth.’
He then introduces Trump.
‘All right, now earlier today you went on TV, and you told the American people that you want to make a deal,’ Harvey says to Trump.
‘That’s right, Steve,’ the President said.
‘All right, so we decided to do this in the only format that you can understand – a TV game show with women holding briefcases,’ Harvey says.
‘Alright now in your briefcase here, you’ve got the deal that Congress offered you in December,’ Harvey says.
‘And I said no deal,’ the President says.
‘Yeah. Nobody’s excited about that. player. What was your counter-offer today?’ Harvey asks.
‘I want $5billion for my big border wall, and in exchange I’ll extend DACA, and I’ll release the kids from cages so they can be, you know, free-range kids,’ the President says.
Trump is then asked to play Deal or No Deal with other players – the members of Congress with whom he has to negotiate the end of the federal shutdown.
The SNL audience is introduced to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, played by Kate McKinnon.
Trump refers to her as ‘Fancy Nancy Pe-loser.’
‘I’m still working on the nickname,’ the President says.
When Harvey asks Pelosi how she’s feeling tonight, she replies: ‘Me? Just normal. Not like drunk on my own power or anything.’
When Harvey mentions to Pelosi that she rejected Trump’s offer to end the shutdown, she replied sarcastically: ‘Which is a shame because I hate saying no to you, Mr. Trump.’
In real life, Trump offered to end the shutdown by offering protections for DACA recipients in exchange for funding for his border wall. That offer was rejected.
When Harvey asks Pelosi to open her briefcase, the note inside reads: ‘$1billion, and you say Nancy is my mommy.’
Harvey replies: ‘Okay, $1billion for border security. That’s a lot of money.’
‘Yeah, but it’s not $5billion, and I need $5billion because that’s the first random number I said,’ Trump said.
