This Dec. 3, 2016 image released by NBC shows Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway, left, and Alec Baldwin as President-elect Donald Trump during "Saturday Night Live," in New York. Trump called the late-night institution unfunny and Baldwin's portrayal of him mean-spirited, suggesting the show wasn't long for the world. Trump has grumbled in tweets about the show three times since October, most recently last weekend after Baldwin and Kate McKinnon appeared in a skit about his Twitter habit. (Will Heath/NBC via AP)

'SNL' poked fun at Trump's misspelled tweets and his relationship with Putin


Alec Baldwin returned to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend to reprise his role as Donald Trump, despite the president-elect calling his impersonation "mean-spirited" and "not very good." 

"SNL" took jabs at Trump's relationship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, his cabinet picks and his misspelled tweets. 

In the first sketch, Baldwin as Trump got a surprise holiday visit from a shirtless Putin, who entered through the chimney carrying a sack of presents. 

"Mr. Trump, we are here because your CIA is saying that we Russians tried to make you win election," said Putin, who was played by Beck Bennett. 

"I know, all lies, made up by some very bitter people who need to move on!" Baldwin's Trump replied. 

"So you trust me more than American CIA?" Bennett's Putin then asked Trump. 

"All I know is I won!" Baldwin's Trump replied. 

Rex Tillerson, the CEO of ExxonMobil and Trump's pick for secretary of state, also made an appearance. Tillerson, who was played by John Goodman, walked into Trump's office and greeted a shirtless Putin, fondly using the pet name "Pooty" when referring to the Russian leader. 

"SNL" cast member Kate McKinnon also reprised her role as Hillary Clinton in a sketch inspired by the 2003 romantic comedy "Love Actually." 

In "Love Actually," actor Andrew Lincoln expresses his love for co-star Keira Knightley by showing up outside her door, holding cue cards and playing music, pretending to be a group of carolers. Instead, McKinnon's Clinton shows up on the doorstep of an elector and holds up a series of cue cards encouraging the woman not to vote for Trump.

The cue cards read: "I know you're an elector," "And on December 19th...," "You're supposed to vote for Donald Trump," "But Bish...," "He cray." 

Those were then followed up with a set of cue cards meant to drive her point home.
