“Saturday Night Live” gave viewers “The (Trump Impeachment) Trial You Wished Had Happened.”
Chief Justice John Roberts was replaced by Judge Greg Mathis of the court TV show of the same name, played by Kenan Thompson.
Alec Baldwin returned as President Donald Trump, acting as his own defense. Baldwin entered the courtroom with the assistance of a walker, like disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who is recovering from back surgery.
“President Trump, are you trying to Weinstein me right now?” Thompson’s Mathis asked.
“It would (make) sense, because Harvey and I overlap in a few areas,” the “SNL” commander in chief answered.

In his closing statement, Baldwin’s Trump said, as he sees it, “what I’ve learned from this trial is that clearly nothing I do or say has any consequence. So I’d like to come clean about everything. The call with Ukraine wasn’t perfect, it was illegal and frankly, it was a butt dial.”
Baldwin also praised CNN as “awesome” and admitted to cheating “all the time at golf, taxes, wives, elections and bathroom scales.”
In the “Mathis” courtroom, Trump was found guilty, fined $10,000 and forced to pay a compliment to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
“Fine. Her body’s an 8,” said Baldwin’s Trump.
