SNL's Donald Trump Plays "Deal Or No Deal"

Alec Baldwin’s Trump Plays Shutdown ‘Deal or No Deal’ in SNL Cold Open

A characterization of Steve Harvey hosted the show, with U.S. President Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, having a bevvy of briefcases to choose from to find a deal to end the government shutdown. So we made a decision to do this in the only format that you can understand: "a TV game show with women holding briefcases".

"Then guess what. You're not flying to Afghanistan", Baldwin's Trump shot back. "I'm saying a lot of these women are 5s".

WATCH: In a star-studded "It's a Wonderful Life" spoof, SNL asks 'What if Trump were never elected?'

McKinnon's Pelosi pointed out that if the government remained shutdown, Trump wouldn't be able to give a State of the Union, but she noted it was "for security reasons [and] not because I'm vindictive or anything".

"Inside Pelosi's case it says "$1 billion + say Nancy is my mommy".

"Trump and the GOP are just terrified of me because I'm under 100 and I know how to use Instagram", she said.

Mueller not ready for Pres. Trump aide's sentencing, filing says
He is also reportedly involved in a federal investigation of Trump's inaugural committee, where Gates served in a senior role. One heavily redacted section refers to a meeting Manafort had before leaving the Trump campaign on August 19, 2016.

Trump had nothing but vitriol for Pelosi and as the pair awkwardly bickered, Harvey shared the same thought as everyone viewing at home: "This like watching two grandparents fight over the thermostat".

"Cool story, bro. No deal", Trump declared, shutting down the offer without hesitation. Trump naturally rejects it.

As host Steve Harvey, portrayed by Kenan Thompson, says they are about to take a commercial break, Baldwin, as Trump says, "No, wait".

"Let's see the members of Congress who are willing to offer new deals, so this nonsense can go away", the show's Harvey says, before the camera pans to seven politicians and one fake Cardi B holding suitcases.

SNL Trump then picked briefcases held by Schumer, which he called a Jewish woman, Mitch McConnell, who hid like a turtle, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Finally, it was up to Davidson, who appeared as a Clemson football player holding a White Castle box, rather than a briefcase.
