'SNL' Imagines Life Through Donald Trump's Eyes

What the world must look like through Trump-tinted glasses.

No Alec Baldwin Donald Trump impersonation on Saturday Night Live last night, but that doesn't mean references to Trump were absent from the show. After all, he is watching.

Instead, SNL took a new approach to parodying the president-elect with a sketch that imagined what life might look like through Trumps eyes. (Literally, the camera perspective is from inside Trump's head.)

In this world as Trump sees it, The "Failing" New York Times headlines read "False Report, Biased" and "Lies, Lies, Lies," his hands are huge yuge, and he looks like John Cena.

There's an undercurrent of psychological examination beneath the sketch's obvious humor that serves to remind us just how far removed from reality the future leader of our nation seems to be. Trump only hears selective bits and pieces of what the people around him actually say, and when confronted with a voter who reminds him of his campaign promises, Trump's field of vision (the screen) gets shadowy and washed in an ominous red tint.

It's an uncomfortable kind of funny—smart, but scary and intense. Watch for yourself in the clip below:
