Live from New York, it's time for politics Saturday Night Live style. 

As the long-running NBC series kicked off Season 42 this evening, a familiar face decided to return to the sketch series. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump.

While recreating the first Presidential debate for Decision 2016, Donald joined Hillary Clinton (played by Kate McKinnon) where he revealed his goals for the evening.

"Good evening, America. I am going to be so good tonight," he shared. "I am going to be so calm and so presidential that all of you watching are going to cream your jeans." 

What came next was moderator Lester Holt (portrayed by Michael Che) trying to get the candidates to talk about issues including job creation, national security and the Iraq war. In true SNL fashion, however, things didn't exactly go as planned.

During the mock debate, Donald got a case of the sniffles while Hillary walked in with a cane due to her recent pneumonia. In addition, Donald made a point to bring up his concerns regarding his opponent.

"I have the best judgment. And the best temperament. She's the one with the bad temperament. She's always screaming. She's constantly lying," he shared. "Her hair is crazy. Her face is completely orange except around the eyes where its white. Once she stops talking, her mouth looks like a tiny little butthole." 

When Hillary started crying later on in the debate, the moderator checked in to see what was going on.

"I, I'm sorry, Lester. This is going so well," she shared. "It's going exactly how I'd always dreamed."

Ultimately, each candidate was able to put aside any difference of opinion for one important reason. Can you guess why? "Live from New York, it's Saturday night."
