Pleased with his supporters' unconditional support, Trump bids goodbye to the audience, but not before offering one last nugget of advice - "Keep eating that finger chili". It was amusing, in places, but it was also preaching to the blue-state choir just as surely as Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly - wait!
Between the Syrian missile launch, Neil Gorsuch's Supreme court nomination, and the Trump administration's first move to defund the United Nations, it was a really stressful news week.
"The media is saying nice things", he said, "and no one is talking about Russian Federation".
'Wow, what a difference 50 tomahawk missiles can make'.
The crowd asked questions. The real President Trump defended the real Fox host this week. They don't have to be in coal.
When the coal miner pressed POTUS on the issue ― not without expressing his support first ― Trump, on a whim, made a decision to slash the federal rehab program altogether. In Trump's America, men work in two places: "coal mines and Goldman Sachs". Congress controls the government's purse strings, so even though Trump can make suggestions about where to allocate federal funds, the House and Senate appropriations. But Baldwin can normally be counted on to elevate perfectly-reasonable-but-not-exciting sketches through the sheer weird energy of his Trump impression, and the visible pleasure he takes in the president's affectations: GINA for China, the preening "we all love Trump" s, the stunted hand gestures.
"My mortgage?" she said, brightly. I look fantastic - and can I tell you something?
'That's why I came here. "This is hard for me to discuss, but I've also been in the news this week", Baldwin as O'Reilly said before introducing Baldwin's Trump. "It's like you found a finger in your chili but you still eat the chili".
So who's the skit making fun of?
The segment depicts Trump attending a town hall in Kentucky, where he fields questions from working-class Americans concerned about jobs, healthcare and child support. But it perpetuates the idea that the only people who supported Trump were slack-jawed yokels who didn't know any better.
