With Tina Fey’s doppelganger Sarah Palin making headlines again, the former Saturday Night Live cast member braved the snow-covered streets of New York to make a return appearance on the long-running show Saturday.
On Tuesday, Palin appeared at a rally for Donald Trump in Iowa, announcing she was supporting the real estate tycoon’s run for the White House.
This opened the door for Fey to reprise her role as the former Alaska governor on SNL in a sketch which also saw the return of another former cast-mate Darryl Hammond as the blustery Trump.
The Palin-Trump sketch will likely be the only time you will see anyone portraying the audacious Trump as being a straightman for other characters (ever)(I mean ever!).
Fey begins the sketch by saying, “I wanted to take a break from my full-time career on Facebook to fly down here, and lend my support to the next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.”
To which Hammond responds, “Hey America, isn’t she great? Just the total package: smart, legs, yelling, everything. I haven’t seen a woman this impressive since Jeb Bush.”
While Palin was flying to endorse Trump Tuesday, word came out of Alaska that her son, Track, had been arrested for domestic violence.
“I’m here because we Americans are struggling… so many of us have lost our jobs at the factory or reality shows about Alaska,” Fey joked. “We’ve seen our own children targeted by the police for no reason other than they committed some crimes.
“We turn on the news every morning and are shocked that we aren’t on it because we have been replaced by immigrants liker Her-aldo River-a”
To which Hammond responds, “She’s fun. She says whatever she wants. It’s like her mouth starts driving before her brain gets in the car.”
