Alec Baldwin Does His Best Donald Trump "Apology" on SNL

"Are you trying to say 'apologize?'" "No, I would never do that."

Last night, following the real Donald Trump's "apology" after tape of him making lewd comments about grabbing women "by the pussy" leaked, Alec Baldwin did his own, most perfect "apple-agy" as Trump on SNL.

The show cold-opened with a bit on last week's vice-presidential debate, which gets interrupted by a CNN special report on Trump responding to the tape. The schtick is pretty spot on, "Come on, Brooke, I was trying to look cool. What normal, red-blooded American doesn't want to impress the Billy Bush," Baldwin says, and as CNN lists the republicans have have rescinded their Trump endorsements, he has Trumpiest retorts: John McCain, "coward"; Carly Fiorina,"she's a four"; Mike Crapo ,"More like Crap-o."

We even get a shot of Hillary Clinton's reaction (played by Kate McKinnon) to Trump's offensive comments from her campaign headquarters.

It all begins at the 1:50 mark:
