Talented actor and Donald Trump impersonator Alec Baldwin just returned to NBC's “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday” to perfectly re-enact President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Phoenix earlier this week.

Here are some of the most noteworthy quotes:

“As we all know, there was a tragic victim in Charlottesville — me.”

“I sat down with our military, we looked at the map and I asked the hard questions, like which one is Afghanistan? Is that blue thing an ocean?”

Baldwin asked, “What do we want?” and the crowd chanted, “The wall!” Baldwin asked, “Who's going to pay for it?” and the crowd replied, “Mexico!” Baldwin responded, “That's right, you are — the American taxpayer.”

“Steve [Bannon] is going on to Breitbart where he will be fighting the good fight against globalist cucks like my son-in-law Jared.”

While “Saturday Night Live” is known for its controversial comedy, perhaps they took it one step too far when they referred to Trump as the “tragic victim” of the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. Especially since a 32-year-old woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed during when a car plowed into a crowd of counterprotesters.

Baldwin has appeared on “Saturday Night Live” for the past year and has consistently made viewers laugh at his near-perfect imitation of Trump.
