SNL: Jimmy Fallon’s Trudeau, Paul Rudd’s Macron and James Corden’s Boris Johnson Bully Alec Baldwin’s Trump
Saturday Night Live opened this week’s show by taking on the hot-mic moment that rocked the international community and sent President Trump sulking home from Britain. “Some dismissed it as petty high school gossip,” a voiceover said, “but you should have seen what happened in the NATO cafeteria.” With that, Jimmy Fallon as Justin Trudeau, Paul Rudd as Emmanuel Macron and James Corden as Boris Johnson strolled onto the stage and declared themselves the “bad boys” of NATO. “Look! Quiet, it’s Trump,” Macron said as Alec Baldwin entered the scene. “Did you see him speak for 45 minutes the other day? It was just supposed to be a photo.” “Well if I looked like him, I’d try to distract the photographer, too,” Trudeau joked. ‘Gossipy Bitches’: Trevor Noah Takes on World Leaders’ Video Mocking Trump“Yeah, he’s not good-looking like us three,” Johnson added, laughing.When Trump tried to sit down with them, they told him the seat was taken and made him sit with the “foreign guy” from Latvia. Later, the trio invited Kate McKinnon’s Angela Merkel to sit at the “cool kids’ table and Johnson put an “Impeach Me” sign on Trump’s back. “You know, you guys really are jerks,” Trump told them. “You’re all two-faced, and I’m not getting impeached. It’s all a sham.” In the end, the whole thing was revealed to be a public service announcement from Cecily Strong’s Melania Trump.“Bullying is a serious problem, especially against President Trump,” she said. It’s not nice. He would never do to you. So please, European leaders, be best.”“And I’d also like to tell you about Peloton,” Melania added. “Are you scared? Why not imagine biking away from it all on Peloton.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Looks Back on Her ‘Miserable’ Time at ‘SNL’ in the 1980s: ‘I Was Unbelievably Naive’
In a candid and frequently hilarious chat with Stephen Colbert on Saturday, Julia Louis-Dreyfus reflected on her “miserable” time as a “Saturday Night Live” cast member, and how the experience taught her to make sure she always enjoyed every future job.Speaking to Colbert as part of a benefit for Montclair Film at Newark’s New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Louis-Dreyfus explained how unprepared she was when she joined the show in the mid 1980s at the age of 21, not even finishing her studies at Northwestern University before heading off to New York.“I was unbelievably naive and I didn’t really understand how the dynamics of the place worked,” she told Colbert. “It was very sexist - very sexist. People were doing crazy drugs at the time. I was oblivious. I just thought, ‘Oh, wow! He’s got a lot of energy!'”Also Read: 'SNL': Will Ferrell's Gordon Sondland Shows Up to Ruin Things for Alec Baldwin's Trump (Video)She and Colbert then joked for a second that they couldn’t understand how anyone could ever perform inebriated, just before taking big sips from their cocktails.Louis-Dreyfus, who went on to decades-long TV success with shows like “Seinfeld,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and “Veep,” explained that her time on “SNL” led her to develop a system that helped her choose her future projects.“It was a pretty brutal time, but it was a very informative time for me,” she told Colbert. She said she realized then she wouldn’t do “anymore of this crap” unless “it was fun.”Also Read: 'SNL' Spoofs Democratic Debate With All-Star Lineup of Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph, Woody Harrelson and More (Video)“It is important and so basic, but I just felt like, ‘I don’t have to; I don’t have to do this, I don’t have to walk and crawl through this kind of nasty glass if it’s not ultimately going to be fulfilling,” she said. “And so that’s how I sort of moved forward from that moment and I sort of applied that kind of ‘fun meter’ to every job I’ve had since and it definitely has been very helpful.”There was another benefit to the actress’ time on “SNL”: She met and bonded with Larry David, who would eventually put her in “Seinfeld.”“Larry David and I had been on ‘SNL’ together my last year there because he was a writer, and we bonded because he was as miserable as I was,” she revealed, earning a laugh from the crowd.Representatives for NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Read original story Julia Louis-Dreyfus Looks Back on Her ‘Miserable’ Time at ‘SNL’ in the 1980s: ‘I Was Unbelievably Naive’ At TheWrap
