Trump Says 'No deal' on 'SNL' Game Show Cold Open

SNL brings Alec Baldwin's Trump to SNL brings Alec Baldwin's Trump to"Deal or No Deal

The contestant, naturally, is Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump, who is playing to perhaps end the shutdown, if only he can get a good enough deal.

In SNL's world, he would also "release the kids from cages, so they can be free-range".

Alex Moffat appeared as Chuck Schumer to offer Baldwin's Trump "whatever you want".

The sketch began with Kenan Thompson as Steve Harvey, explaining why Howie Mandel was not hosting.

"Five", Trump said. Harvey asked, "You want briefcase No. 5?"

What next if PM's deal finally goes down in flames?
She continues to say she does not believe doing so would be a good idea, but is not categorically ruling it out. A defeat would leave Britain on course to leave the European Union with no new trading arrangements in place.

"Cool story, bro. No deal", Trump declared, shutting down the offer without hesitation. He then met the members of Congress who were holding "Deal or No Deal" briefcases of counteroffers.

"No, I'm saying a lot of these women are fives", he responded.

Trump actually picks briefcase #3 as his first choice, which is being held by a characterized version of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who says she's feeling "normal, not drunk on power or anything".

Saturday Night Live mocked the federal government shutdown on Saturday night with a Deal or No Deal-style imitation of the stalled negotiations between Democrats and President Trump over funding Trump's border wall. So we made a decision to do this in the only format that you can understand: "a TV game show with women holding briefcases".

"Nancy Pelosi, played by chameleon Kate McKinnon (who later in the show played Elizabeth Warren with aplomb), offered Trump "$1 billion and you say, 'Nancy's my mommy'".

He also was the first recipient of the newly designed UFC title belt and was looking for Dana White to setup a meeting which will surely make him a richer man.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) (Beck Bennett) simply hides behind his suitcase like a turtle dipping its head back into its shell.

Finally, the show's Harvey pushes things along by asking three people to open their suitcases.

"Oh Steve, I haven't eaten a hamburger in nearly 15 minutes", Baldwin's President Trump said.

"You're ending the shutdown for a hamburger?!"
