Alec Baldwin debuts hilarious Trump parody in 'SNL' premiere

- The cold open for the premiere of the 42nd season of "Saturday Night Live" featured a hilarious parody of the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Kate McKinnon returned as Hillary Clinton and actor Alec Baldwin made his debut as Donald Trump, with "Weekend Update" anchor Michael Che playing moderator Lester Holt.

Playing off news stories about Hillary's health, McKinnon hobbled onto the dais with a cane, coughing. She suddenly drops her cane, steps to the podium and announces she's "better than ever." "Let's do this!" she says.

After stepping to his podium, a wig-sporting Baldwin maintains a pout as he promises to be "very presidential", capturing much of Trump's verbal cadence on display at rallies and past debates.
